Flexion's Lead Osteoarthritis Drug Candidate Demonstrates Significant, Prolonged Improvement in Pain and Function in Phase 2 Trial
Date:5/30/2012

WOBURN, Mass., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. today reported that its lead osteoarthritis drug candidate, FX005, demonstrated significant pain relief over placebo at four weeks* in a Phase 2 proof-of-concept trial. Top-line data showed FX005, delivered intra-articularly to the knee, was well-tolerated and resulted in prolonged improvement in joint pain and function throughout the 12-week duration of the study.

Michael Clayman, M.D., chief executive officer of Flexion, said, "We believe these data not only demonstrate the therapeutic potential of FX005 but also validate Flexion's approach to the treatment of osteoarthritis -- intra-articular delivery of sustained-release therapies providing prolonged activity at the site of disease while minimizing systemic exposure and the corresponding risk of systemic side effects. We are enthusiastic about advancing FX005 into the next phase of clinical development, which will be a Phase 2b dose-ranging study that we plan to initiate in the first half of 2013. The data from that study will then be used to identify an optimal dose for Phase 3."

The trial was a double-blind, placebo-controlled study in which 104 patients were randomized to receive FX005 or placebo via int
