Aquinox Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:AQXP), today announced that the Phase 3 LEADERSHIP 301 clinical trial evaluating once-daily, oral rosiptor (AQX-1125) for the treatment of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) failed to meet its primary endpoint.

As quoted in the press release:

“This is a disappointing result for Aquinox and for patients,” said David Main, President and CEO of Aquinox. “LEADERSHIP 301 was a robust and well-conducted trial, and we believe the results are definitive. We have conducted a number of sensitivity, subpopulation, and secondary endpoint analyses and none demonstrate a benefit of rosiptor over placebo. We had hoped to deliver better news to the patients and investigators that made the personal commitment to participate in the trial.”

Main added, “These results support halting all further development activities with rosiptor. We will be undertaking a thorough evaluation of our pipeline and other strategic options available to the company and will be in a position to provide further guidance later this year.”
