Ception Therapeutics and Cephalon Provide Initial Results of a Phase IIb/III Study of CINQUIL in Pediatric Eosinophilic Esophagitis
Date:11/23/2009

MALVERN, Pa. and FRAZER, Pa., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ception Therapeutics, Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company, and Cephalon, Inc. (Nasdaq: CEPH) today announced results from a Phase IIb/III clinical trial for CINQUIL(TM) (reslizumab) as a treatment for pediatric eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).

Ception and Cephalon continue to fully analyze the data and are planning to perform an analysis of an ongoing open-label extension study to help further assess the clinical results.

"We are pleased to see a positive biological effect of CINQUIL," said Steve Tullman, Chief Executive Officer at Ception Therapeutics. "Conducting clinical studies in a new disease area is always challenging. We will continue to review the data from this study and from our ongoing open-label study to find the best path forward for CINQUIL for the treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis."

The four-month, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of CINQUIL in 226 pediatric patients between five and 18 years of age with poorly controlled EoE. Study participants were randomized to receive one of t
