the natural mechanism of action of a biologic product. The company expects to initiate clinical development of RDB 1419 in 2015. Partnered Product Candidates—Development Programs Acorda In December 2014, Acorda announced the initiation of a phase 3 clinical trial of dalfampridine extended release tablets for the treatment of post-stroke walking deficits. It expects this multicenter, double-blind, randomized trial to enroll approximately 540 participants who have experienced an ischemic stroke approximately six months prior to enrollment. Janssen In July 2014, Janssen announced the submission of a supplemental NDA to the FDA seeking a label change that, if approved, is expected to include new data showing delayed time to relapse in patients prescribed INVEGA SUSTENNA, as compared to selected oral antipsychotic therapies, in the treatment of schizophrenia. In November 2014, Janssen announced the submission of an NDA to the FDA for three-month atypical antipsychotic paliperidone palmitate for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults. If approved, it would be the first and only long-acting atypical antipsychotic that has a four times a year dosing schedule. AstraZeneca AstraZeneca is developing line extensions for BYDUREON for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, including weekly and monthly suspension formulations using the company’s proprietary technology for extended-release microspheres. In 2014, AstraZeneca announced the completion of two phase 3 trials of exenatide once weekly suspension for autoinjection, DURATION-NEO-1 and DURATION-NEO-2. The DURATION-NEO-1 phase 3 study evaluated exenatide once weekly suspension for autoinjection compared to twice-daily exenatide in adult patients with type 2 diabetes that had inadequate glycemic control. The trial met its primary endpoint of non-inferiority. The DURATION-NEO-2 study was a randomized, long-term, open-label, multicenter study comparing the glycemic effects, safety and tolerability of exenatide once weekly suspension to sitagliptin and placebo in subjects with type 2 diabetes. AstraZeneca expects to file marketing applications for this product candidate in the U.S. and EU in 2015.
