Study Results Demonstrated Significant Weight Loss in Obese Patients Treated with Qnexa

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VIVUS, Inc. (Nasdaq: VVUS), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development and commercialization of novel therapeutic products, today announced that data from the previously reported 28-week phase 3 EQUATE trial of Qnexa(TM) in obese patients are being presented today at the 17th annual European Congress on Obesity (ECO) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The results, titled "Weight Loss at 6 Months with VI-0521 Treatment," will be presented at the Hot Topic poster session by Donna H. Ryan, M.D., Associate Executive Director for Clinical Research, Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, LA. The presentation marks the first time these results have been shared with the medical community at a major medical meeting.

The phase 3 EQUATE trial evaluated weight loss achieved with two doses of Qnexa versus that achieved with placebo among 756 patients over 28 weeks. Patients taking full-dose and mid-dose Qnexa achieved an average weight loss of 9.2 percent and 8.5 percent, respectively, as compared to 1.7 percent reported for the placebo group. All results were evaluated using ITT-LOCF, the method of analysis required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

"Obesity has reached epidemic proportions, affecting more than 300 million people worldwide and contributing to increased prevalence of life-threatening illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. Patients are in urgent need of new, safe and effective tools to help them achieve the weight loss critical to their health and wellbeing," said Dr. Ryan. "The weight loss seen in patients taking Qnexa, over just 28 weeks, is encouraging for those of us in the medical community treat
