Avanir Pharmaceuticals Announces Publication of Phase III Study Results Showing Efficacy and Safety of AVP-923 in the Treatment of Diabetic Neuropathic Pain
Date:2/8/2012

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Avanir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNR) announced today that the results of the study entitled "Efficacy and Safety of Dextromethorphan/Quinidine (AVP-923) at Two Dosage Levels for Diabetic Neuropathic Pain: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Study" have been published in the February edition of the journal Pain Medicine.

"Throughout a 13-week trial, AVP-923 was effective, with an acceptable safety profile, for treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain. The findings indicate that other fixed-dose combinations of AVP-923 should be studied to improve overall tolerability while maintaining significant efficacy," said Aziz Shabaini, MD, Medical Director of the Nerve and Muscle Center, Texas.

"Today's publication in a leading peer-review medical journal complements a body of scientific literature suggesting that dextromethorphan could be efficacious in neuropathic pain," said Joao Siffert, MD, senior vice president of research and development at Avanir. "These results provide additional rationale in support of the ongoing PRIME study, which is evaluating the combination of dextromethorphan and quinidine in central neuropathic pain in patients with multiple sclerosis."

Study Design
