Labopharm Reports Positive Results for Phase III Study on Once-daily Trazodone
Date:2/8/2008

tients were titrated every three to four days to an optimal dose (maximum dose of 375 mg/day). Patients were then maintained at the optimal dose for the remainder of the study. The study was conducted at 40 centers across the U.S. and Canada.

The primary efficacy endpoint of the study was to compare the change in the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAMD-17) total score from baseline to the end of the study in the once-daily trazodone group versus the placebo group. Statistical significance was achieved for the primary endpoint (p value of 0.0183) and under additional methods of analysis as specified in the Statistical Analysis Plan (SAP). The overall drop out rate in the study was 25.5%. The drop out rate was 21% in the placebo group and 30.2% in the once-daily trazodone group. In the once-daily trazodone group, 4% of patients discontinued treatment due to somnolence or sedation. The drop out rate observed in this study is comparable to drop out rates in typical depression studies.

Based on discussions with the FDA, Labopharm expects to submit an NDA for its once-daily formulation of trazodone under Section 505(b)(2) of the U.S. Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, which typically applies to reformulations of drugs that are already approved and being marketed, allowing the Company to leverage existing efficacy and safety data on trazodone. The Agency advised the Company that one positive Phase III study is required for the formulation to be approved.

About Trazodone

Trazodone is an atypical anti-depressant that acts as a dual serotonin agonist and serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SARI). Trazodone appears to increase serotonin activity via three mechanisms: the activation of neuronal serotonin receptors; the inhibition at the neuronal serotonin feedback system which regulates the action of serotonin; and the inhibition of the re-uptake of serotonin. Trazodone also helps to treat depression by improving sleep as a result of sedative effe
