The company announced that its Phase 3 REST-ON Phase 3 trial has enrolled 205 patients who have narcolepsy and cataplexy, among others.
Avadel Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:AVDL) has announced it has reached its patient enrollment in its REST-ON Phase 2 clinical trial.
As quoted in the press release:
“Achieving the patient enrollment target in the pivotal REST-ON study marks an important milestone in our development efforts for our lead asset, FT218. We expect to announce topline data from the study in the second quarter of 2020, as we continue to advance this program towards submission for regulatory approval,” stated Dr. Jordan Dubow, Chief Medical Officer. “Being able to accelerate this achievement by up to 12 months is a testament to the hard work of the study investigators, staff, and patients, as well as the Avadel team.”
Based on the Company’s industry research, it believes FT218, if approved by the FDA, has the potential to take a significant share of the twice-nightly sodium oxybate market. Currently, this market is valued at an estimated annualized rate of $1.7 billion1.
The REST-ON study is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial to assess the efficacy and safety of once-nightly FT218, a formulation of sodium oxybate using Avadel’s proprietary Micropump™ technology for extended-release oral suspension, in the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy in patients suffering from narcolepsy. The REST-ON study is under a Special Protocol Assessment agreement with FDA.
