Intra-Cellular Therapies Announces the Discovery of Potent Antidepressant Activity in ITI-007
Date:4/9/2008

NEW YORK, April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Intra-Cellular Therapies, Inc., today announced additional preclinical data from its ongoing development programs for ITI-007, the Company's first-in-class dual 5HT2A receptor antagonist/dopamine receptor phosphoprotein modulator (DPPM), and ITI-722, a low-dose formulation of ITI-007, which are in development for schizophrenia and sleep disorders, respectively. These new data demonstrate ITI-007 has preclinical activity both in vitro and in vivo as an antidepressant.

ITI-007 acts as a potent inhibitor of the serotonin transporter (SERT), a major target for most antidepressant drugs. To examine whether this in vitro activity could be predictive of behavioral activity in vivo, the antidepressant effect of ITI-007 was investigated using an animal model of depression involving social stress. Repeated treatment of ITI-007 improved performance in this animal model, consistent with antidepressant-like efficacy. The combined actions of ITI-007 as a SERT inhibitor, a 5HT2A receptor antagonist, and a DPPM may provide a unique, antidepressant drug with a more optimal profile, including a lack of sexual side effects common to other antidepressant drugs.

"These studies demonstrate ITI-007 may have antidepressant activity in addition to its potential in treating sleep maintenance insomnia and psychosis in patients," stated Sharon Mates, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Intra-Cellular Therapies. "We believe ITI-007 represents a unique compound that may have broad use in treating many neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders where sleep problems, depression, or psychosis are prominent symptoms, including schizophrenia, affective disorders, and Parkinson's disease."
