Medivation Completes Enrollment in Confirmatory, Pivotal Phase 3 'CONNECTION' Trial of Dimebon in Patients With Alzheimer's Disease
Date:6/11/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medivation, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDVN) today announced the completion of patient enrollment in the CONNECTION study, a six-month, confirmatory, pivotal Phase 3 trial of the investigational drug dimebon in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease.

The international, double-blind, placebo-controlled, pivotal Phase 3 study enrolled 598 patients, exceeding the enrollment target of 525 patients. More than 40 percent of the patients enrolled were in the United States. The six-month study is evaluating the effect of dimebon on the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog) and the Clinician's Interview-Based Impression of Change plus caregiver interview (CIBIC-plus) -- the two endpoints have historically been accepted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to support registration of currently approved drugs for mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease.

"Completion of patient enrollment in this second pivotal trial moves us closer to our goal of submitting a marketing application to the FDA and bringing dimebon to market for the many Alzheimer's patients suffering from this devastating disease," said Lynn Seely, M.D., chief medical officer of Medivation. "We are gratified by the strong interest in this trial as indicated by our exceeding the enrollment goal. Together with our partner Pfizer, we are executing a comprehensive clinical plan to support an NDA filing, currently targeted for 2011, with a broad and differentiated label for dimebon in Alzheimer's disease. We are also conducting a Phase 3 safety study, which will provide us and Pfizer the opportunity to seek marketing approval earlier if results of the CONNECTION study confirm our previously completed first pivotal study, which was published in the Lancet last year."
