vernalis plc (VER) Key Developments

Vernalis plc Completes Investment in its NCE Development Pipeline

Vernalis plc announced the results from a Phase II proof-of-concept study of V158866, its fatty acid amide hydrolase inhibitor, which is being investigated as a treatment for neuropathic pain as a result of spinal cord injury. In the randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, two-period cross-over study, although dosing of V158866 resulted in elevated endocannabinoid levels, on an intent-to-treat basis the study failed to meet its pain reduction primary endpoint. Treatment with V158866 did however show a trend towards efficacy on a per protocol basis and was generally well tolerated. Consistent with its strategy of becoming a commercial business, the company is not planning to make any further investment in this programme and will seek to realise its potential value through partnering.
