Zogenix announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee voted 2-11 against the approval of Zohydro ER, an extended-release formulation of hydrocodone without acetaminophen, for the management of moderate-to-severe chronic pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time. "We remain confident in the measures we have proposed to support safe use of Zohydro ER and are committed to continuing to work with the FDA through the review process to bring this treatment option to this specific patient population," Zogenix COO Stephen Farr said. The Prescription Drug User Fee Act date for completion of FDA review of the Zohydro ER New Drug Application for approval is March 1, 2013.

08:07 EDTZGNXZogenix reports positive top-line results from Relday Phase 1b clinical trial
Zogenix announced positive top-line pharmacokinetic results from its Phase 1b multi-dose clinical trial of Relday, a proprietary, once-monthly subcutaneous investigational formulation of risperidone for the treatment of schizophrenia. If approved, Relday has the potential to be the first subcutaneous antipsychotic product that achieves therapeutic drug levels on the first day of administration, allows for once-monthly dosing and does not require reconstitution. Zogenix has retained Locust Walk Partners of Cambridge, MA, a transaction advisory firm for life sciences companies, to provide transaction advisory and support services for Relday, and has now initiated efforts to secure a global strategic development and commercialization partner for Relday. The Phase 1b multi-dose parallel group clinical trial enrolled 60 subjects comprised of three cohorts of patients receiving four monthly injections of Relday, at dose levels of either 60, 90 or 120 mg of risperidone per month. A fourth cohort received five bi-weekly intramuscular injections of Risperdal Consta. Risperdal Consta requires oral supplementation for the first three weeks following dosing initiation, and requires at least four doses to reach steady state. The results for Relday demonstrated that risperidone plasma concentrations in the therapeutic range were achieved on the first day of dosing, reached steady state levels following the second dose and consistently maintained therapeutic levels throughout the four-month period. In addition, dose proportionality was confirmed across the dose range intended for clinical practice (60 to 120 mg). Relday was generally safe and well-tolerated, with results consistent with the profile of risperidone and the Company's previous Phase 1 single-dose clinical trial.
