08:01 EDTZLCSZalicus updates progress on Z944 clinical development
Zalicus reported successful results from a phase 1 clinical study to evaluate multiple modified-release formulations of Z944, a novel, oral, T-type calcium channel modulator in development for the treatment of pain. The open label, randomized cross-over study compared three modified-release tablet formulations of Z944 with the immediate-release capsule formulation which was shown to be effective in a previous human clinical model of pain. The selected tablet formulation demonstrates a superior exposure and tolerability profile and warrants further clinical development. In addition, translational pharmacology studies performed in collaboration with Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital have confirmed the central nervous system action and pharmacodynamic effects of Z944 using an electroencephalography biomarker model. In this model, systemic Z944, at concentrations relevant to those effective in humans, reversed brain changes associated with neuropathic pain by restoring normal brain wave function. Furthermore, normalization of brain wave function by Z944 correlates with attenuation of pain-like behaviors in rodent neuropathic pain models.
