Published Data Demonstrate Arena Pharmaceuticals' Lorcaserin Has Low Abuse Potential
Date:12/10/2009

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 10, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARNA) reported that positive data from a clinical trial evaluating the abuse potential of lorcaserin were presented in a poster session at the 48th Annual Meeting of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.

The clinical trial compared the relative abuse potential of lorcaserin against three comparators: placebo, zolpidem (a schedule IV controlled substance) and ketamine (a schedule III controlled substance).

The trial was a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, seven-way crossover trial conducted in 35 healthy male and female recreational drug users. Subjects received single doses of lorcaserin (20 mg, 40 mg and 60 mg), zolpidem (15 mg and 30 mg), ketamine (100 mg) and placebo in a blinded fashion. Following dosing, subjects completed tests that assessed their subjective states and the drugs' effects (both positive and negative). The primary endpoint was derived from the scor
