- Company Plans to Initiate Phase IIa Study of NGX426 in Acute Migraine in

First Half of 2008 -

LA JOLLA, Calif., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- TorreyPines Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPTX) today reported pharmacokinetic data obtained in a Phase I maximum tolerated dose clinical trial of NGX426, the oral prodrug of tezampanel, show that the area under the curve (AUC), which represents the total amount of drug absorbed by the body, of a single, 80 mg, oral dose of NGX426 is comparable to the AUC of a single, 40 mg, subcutaneous dose of tezampanel.

With the recently demonstrated efficacy of 40 mg of tezampanel in a Phase IIb clinical trial in acute migraine, the comparable AUCs suggest that NGX426 also may be effective in treating acute migraine headache. TorreyPines Therapeutics plans to initiate a Phase IIa study of NGX426 in acute migraine in the first half of 2008.

"These findings with the oral form of tezampanel are very encouraging, especially when looked at in conjunction with the data from our evaluation of the subcutaneous form," said Neil Kurtz, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of TorreyPines Therapeutics. "These data fully support the continued development of NGX426, which, as an oral prodrug, can provide an additional route of administration for tezampanel to acute migraine sufferers."

Initiated earlier this year, this double-blind, placebo-controlled trial enrolled normal healthy adult volunteers in sequential, dose-escalating cohorts. The Phase I data show that single, oral doses of NGX426 from 40 mg to 90 mg are safe and well-tolerated. TorreyPines Therapeutics is amending the Phase I clinical trial protocol to extend the dosing range beyond 90 m
