Trophos Presents Data At The American Academy Of Neurology On SMA And MS
Medical News Today | April 14, 2011
Trophos SA, a clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing innovative therapeutics from discovery to clinical validation for indications with under-served needs in neurology and cardiology, announces today that Trophos has described the design of its pivotal clinical study of olesoxime in spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) via a poster presentation at this week’s 6th Annual American Academy of Neurology (AAN) meeting held in Honolulu, Hawaii, US, April 9 to 16, 2011. In addition at the conference, Trophos also delivered an oral presentation detailing Trophos’ novel approach in multiple sclerosis (MS). Both the paper and oral presentation were delivered at the conference on April 14.
The poster, on the pivotal efficacy study of olesoxime in the rare, neurodegenerative condition, SMA, demonstrates how the challenges of designing a robust study in an indication where there is no precedent were met by bringing together and working with key opinion leaders, patient and physician networks and regulators. The study commenced in October 2010 (see release of October 15 2010) and is currently recruiting patients. Efficacy results are expected in the second half of 2013. The study is substantially funded by Trophos’ partnership with the Association Française contre les Myopathies (AFM) (see release of 19 March 2009) and the trial protocol has benefited from the EMA Protocol Advice procedure.
