Merz Pharmaceuticals Announces Approval of Post-stroke Upper Limb Spasticity Indication for Xeomin(R) in the EU
Date:11/18/2009

FRANKFURT, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Merz Pharmaceuticals announced Xeomin®, the first botulinum toxin type A free from complexing proteins has been granted an extension of indication for post-stroke spasticity of the upper limb presenting with flexed wrist and clenched fist in adults in various European countries. Xeomin® was already granted approval for post-stroke spasticity of the upper limb in early 2009 in Canada, Mexico and Argentina. This important extension of indication is based on the Kanovsky study, the largest randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial with a botulinum toxin in upper limb post-stroke spasticity to date.

Data results published last month in Clinical Neuropharmacology, revealed that Merz Pharmaceuticals' NT 201 (botulinum toxin type A free from complexing proteins), also known by the brand name Xeomin® in Europe and Canada, was statistically significantly more efficacious than placebo for the treatment of patients with post-stroke upper limb spasticity. The Phase III study assessed the impact of NT 201 on muscle tone, functional disability and caregiver burden in patients with post-stroke upper limb spasticity, utilizing a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind design.

NT 201 is high in biologic activity and has a low protein load. It has been approved for marketing in Europe since 2005 to treat various movement disorders, and recently approved in Canada for the management of blepharospasm, cervical dystonia of a predominantly rotational form and post-stroke spasticity of the upper limb.

In the Phase III trial, a higher proportion of patients receiving NT 201 were responders in terms of improvement in the wrist flexors four weeks after treatment. Responders were defined as patients with at least 1 point of improvement in the Ashworth Scale Score.
