Minster Pharmaceuticals Plc Announces Positive Results from Phase II Trial of Migraine with Aura
Date:10/24/2008

ESSEX, United Kingdom, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Minster Pharmaceuticals plc (AIM: MPM), the drug development company specializing in neurological and psychiatric disorders, is pleased to announce positive results from its Phase II trial in Denmark of tonabersat in the prevention of migraine with aura.

Migraine with aura affects around 30 percent of migraine sufferers and is a type of migraine in which the headache is preceded by symptoms such as visual disturbances and abnormalities of speech and hearing.

A total of 31 patients completed the Phase II trial, which was conducted at the Danish Headache Center at Copenhagen's Glostrup University Hospital. The principal investigator in the trial was Professor Jes Olesen, the Danish Headache Center's Director and one of the world's leading authorities on headache.

Under the trial's cross-over design, patients took either tonabersat or placebo once a day for a three-month period after which the treatment regimen was reversed such that those initia
