EPIX Pharmaceuticals Announces FDA Approval of a Physician-Sponsored IND for Fourth 6-month Open Label Extension of PRX-03140 for Alzheimer's Disease Patient
Date:10/16/2009

WELLESLEY Hills, Mass., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The FDA has approved a Physician-Sponsored IND and continuation of the fourth 6-month open label extension of PRX-03140, a novel 5HT4 partial agonist for the potential treatment of Alzheimer's Disease. The patient was enrolled initially in a two week Phase 2a study in August 2007 where she received 100 mg per day of PRX-03140 in combination with her normal daily dose of Aricept(®)(10 mg). Based on the marked progress during the original two week study, the patient's daughter sought continued compassionate use of PRX-03140 for her mother and a protocol was submitted to the FDA and approved. The progress seen in the first 2-week study has continued during the past two years (19 months of dosing) and four FDA approved 6-month open label extensions. The latest open label extension will be administered under a new Physician-Sponsored IND under the supervision of Dr. Lucy Hornstein(1). "When I was approached by the patient's daughter to continue the compassionate use therapy of PRX-03140 for her mother, I was compelled by the progress her mother had experienced and the overall apparent safety of the drug," notes Dr. Hornstein.
