Emerging Data From Upsher-Smith's CNS Portfolio Highlighted At 2013 American Academy Of Neurology Meeting
Date:3/11/2013

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. (Upsher-Smith), a privately held, specialty pharmaceutical company committed to the development of new treatments for diseases of the central nervous system (CNS), is proud to sponsor emerging data for three investigational drug programs in epilepsy at the 65th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) in San Diego, CA, March 16-23, 2013.

Upsher-Smith's CNS pipeline consists of two Phase III programs: USL255 (topiramate), an investigational extended-release topiramate for the management of epilepsy in adults; and USL261 (midazolam) for the intranasal rescue treatment of seizures in patients who require control of intermittent bouts of increased seizure activity, often called seizure clusters.  Additionally, USL260 (tonabersat) is a potential first-in-class neuronal gap junction modulator in Phase I of development for treatment of epilepsy.

"Upsher-Smith is committed to improving the lives of people living with epilepsy by developing innovative treatments to address the unmet needs of those who suffer from this condition," said William Pullman, MB BS, BMedSc, PhD, FRACP, Chief Scientific Officer, Upsher-Smith.  "We are very pleased with the progress that has been made with each of our investigational CNS drug programs and are excited to share our ongoing scientific research in epilepsy at AAN's Annual Meeting."

Upsher-Smith sponsored posters include:

  • Single, High Doses of USL255, an Extended-Release Topiramate Formulation, Are Well Tolerated and Demonstrate a Dose-Proportional Pharmacokinetic Profile in Healthy Subjects
