ly meaningful impact that treatment with NUEDEXTA may have."

PRISM II assessed the safety and efficacy of NUEDEXTA in treating PBA in patients with Alzheimer's disease/dementia, stroke and TBI. While the Alzheimer's disease/dementia cohort is now fully enrolled at 134 patients, at the time of interim analysis 96 patients had evaluable safety data and 68 had effectiveness data (at least 30 treatment days). The study endpoints included a PBA symptom rating (Center for Neurologic Study-Lability Scale; CNS-LS; 7=no symptoms – 35=maximum symptoms), number of weekly PBA episodes, Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), quality of life (QOL; 0=no impairment-10=maximum impairment) improvements, and Clinician and Patient Global Impression of Change (CGI-C; PGI-C).

    • 79.3% of clinicians rated the patient to be much/very much improved on the CGI-C
  • MMSE mean score improved by 0.4 points at end of study from a baseline of 19.0
  • Adverse Events (AE) were reported by a total of 35 (36.5%) patients (6.3% treatment-related), most commonly headache (9.4%), urinary tract infection (5.2%), and diarrhea (4.2%).
