Multiple Dose Clinical Trial of TorreyPines Therapeutics' Tezampanel Demonstrates Compound is Safe and Well-Tolerated
Date:2/5/2008

rom the study and reported adverse events were generally mild and transient.

"This study is an important step forward in the clinical development of tezampanel. Our ability to safely deliver multiple doses of tezampanel means that we can now pursue virtually any indication that requires chronic dosing," said Neil Kurtz, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of TorreyPines Therapeutics. "There is an emerging appreciation of the pathological effects of increased AMPA and kainate receptor activation by glutamate. By blocking both receptors, tezampanel and its oral prodrug, NGX426, may represent a unique and effective approach to treat a variety of chronic pain as well as non-pain conditions."

Tezampanel is the first AMPA/kainate antagonist to be studied in clinical trials for chronic pain. Both tezampanel and NGX426 represent a novel, non-opiod, non-vascular and non-serotonergic approach to treating multiple chronic pain conditions. Tezampanel and NGX426 are antagonists of a subgroup of glutamate receptors referred to as AMPA and kainate. These receptors are found in areas of the central and peripheral nervous system that are important for the transmission of pain. For example, during a migraine attack, levels of glutamate increase and activate these receptors, facilitating the transmission of pain impulses. Tezampanel, by blocking the binding of glutamate to these receptors, is believed to inhibit the transmission of pain signals that lead to migraine headaches. The blockade of similar receptors in other regions of the brain or spinal cord has been shown in animal models to attenuate pathophysiological processes such as the muscle spasticity and rigidity that occurs following stroke and spinal cord injury, or that may be associated with multiple sclerosis.
