MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MAPP) today announced that the Company will present new data from two safety studies of LEVADEX® orally inhaled migraine drug.  The data will be presented at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) in Honolulu, Hawaii April 9-16, 2011.  LEVADEX is an investigational acute drug for migraine that has completed Phase 3 clinical development.

Findings to be presented at 2:00 p.m. HAST today in the poster titled "An Open-Label, 2-Period, Crossover Study Comparing the Pharmacokinetics and Tolerability of LEVADEX (MAP0004, Orally Inhaled DHE) and Intravenous DHE (DHE45) in Smoking and Non-Smoking Adult Volunteers," show that:

  • LEVADEX exposure was not higher in smokers, potentially due to reduced pulmonary absorption
  • LEVADEX was quickly absorbed into the bloodstream of both smokers and non-smokers, as evidenced by a median Tmax of 4.98 and 7.02 minutes respectively
