JERSEY CITY, N.J., July 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America, Inc. (MTPA) today announced the presentation of seven abstracts in Parkinson's disease (PD) at the 9th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), which was held in Budapest, July 1-3, and the 6th World Parkinson Congress (WPC), being held in Barcelona, July 4-7.
"Our presence at EAN and WPC this year underscores MTPA's dedication to investigating potential treatment options to tackle the current unmet needs and challenges of Parkinson's disease," said Gustavo A. Suarez Zambrano, M.D., Vice President of Medical Affairs at MTPA. "We're excited to share our progress with the global scientific community, including the presentation of key findings from a number of clinical trials evaluating ND0612 in people with Parkinson's disease experiencing motor fluctuations."
Clinical development of investigational ND0612 is being led by NeuroDerm, Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation (MTPC), MTPA's parent company. If regulatory approval for ND0612 is obtained, MTPA intends to commercialize the therapy in the U.S.
Presentations at EAN
Presentations highlighted findings from two ongoing studies of investigational ND0612 in people with PD with motor fluctuations, including topline results from the Phase 3 multi-center, randomized, double-blind double-dummy (DBDD) BouNDless trial evaluating the efficacy, safety and tolerability of ND0612, in addition to three-year outcomes from the Phase 2b open-label BeyoND study evaluating the long-term safety of ND0612. Additionally, results were shared from an open-label pharmacokinetic study assessing the relative bioavailability of levodopa when administered with ND0612 vs. oral levodopa/carbidopa (LD/CD).
Presentations at WPC
New data from a post-hoc analysis from the 28-day open-label Study 006 will be presented, evaluating the early efficacy of investigational ND0612 in reducing motor fluctuations in study participants treated with a 24-hour ND0612 infusion regimen, along with findings from four case studies describing the long-term (up to five years) experience of participants in the Phase 2b BeyoND study receiving ND0612 treatment. Additional presentations will highlight the development of a Motor Fluctuations Patient Journey Map (MFPJM) for people with PD to describe the holistic patient experience from pre-diagnosis through hospice care with a focus on motor fluctuations, and details on enrollment characteristics of randomized study participants in the Phase 3 BouNDless study. All posters will be on display in the Exhibit Hall during Poster Session 1 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. CEST on July 5.
This press release is intended for U.S. audiences only.
ND0612 is an investigative drug-device combination therapy – a 24 hours/day, continuous subcutaneous infusion of liquid levodopa/carbidopa (LD/CD) for people with Parkinson's disease (PD) experiencing motor fluctuations.
