A Phase II, Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Dose-Escalating Study, Meets the Clinical Endpoints of MTR106 Tablets During the Treatment of Acute Migraine Attacks Without Aura in Females
Date:11/6/2007

REHOVOT, Israel, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Meditor Pharmaceuticals Ltd. announced today that the primary end point and safety evaluation in the Phase II, Randomized Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Dose-Escalating Study in Migraine patients was successfully completed. This event marks a major milestone in the development program of the compound MTR106 (tablet formulation of MTR104). MTR104 is a low molecular weight S-Alkylisothiouronium derivative.

This Phase II study was designed to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety and efficacy of MTR106 in female patients suffering from migraine without aura. The study population consisted of forty (40) female patients ranging from 22-57 years of age. The average duration of migraine attacks was 16.6 +/- 10 hours with a frequency of 2.8 +/- 1.3 attacks per month. The subjects were randomized in a ratio of 4:1: treatment to placebo respectively, constituting 4 groups of 10 patients each. Treatment arms of MTR106 or placebo were administered at escalating doses of 25, 50, 75 and 100 mg.

MTR106 was found to be safe and well tolerated. No serious adverse events occurred in the 4 studied doses and no symptoms related to chest pain or changes in heart rate or blood pressure were observed. The study results demonstrated that at 2 hours and at the 3rd and 4th hours post-treatment more patients treated with MTR106 had pain relief compared to those treated with placebo.
