Enrollment in Relmada Therapeutics' Proof-of-Concept Clinical Study for Novel Oral Formulations of Buprenorphine Reaches Halfway Mark
Date:6/29/2015

NEW YORK, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Relmada Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: RLMD), a clinical-stage company developing novel therapies for the treatment of chronic pain, announced today that patient enrollment in its proof-of-concept pharmacokinetic study with novel formulations of oral, enteric-coated buprenorphine (collectively BuTab, or REL-1028) being developed for both chronic pain and opioid dependence indications has reached the halfway point. Consistent with prior guidance, the company anticipates reporting top-line results in the second half of 2015.

"The halfway point of our proof-of-concept study marks another important milestone in our efforts to advance an oral formulation of BuTab that will compare favorably with currently marketed formulations of buprenorphine," stated Sergio Traversa, CEO of Relmada Therapeutics.  "As a traditional tablet taken by mouth and passing down the intestinal tract where it will ultimately be absorbed, BuTab would represent an important advance in patient care and a significant commercial opportunity for Relmada. We look forward to reporting results from this study during the second half of 2015. "

The clinical study is designed to assess the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of BuTab in healthy subjects. Based on the underlying scientific rationale and the company's previously conducted successful preclinical work, the key objective of this study is to assess if buprenorphine can be delivered orally and reach safe and effective blood levels through the gastrointestinal route of administration. There are currently no commercially available oral formulations of buprenorphine that result in gastro-intestinal absorption. The data generated by this study will inform the design of subsequent clinical pharmacology studies for opioid dependence and potential regulatory filing for this indication along with the design of a Phase 3 study in chronic pain under the abbreviated 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway.
