Staccato(R) Loxapine (AZ-004) Reduced Signs and Symptoms of Agitation as Early as Ten Minutes After Dosing in Patients with Schizophrenia or Bipolar Disorder
Date:5/26/2010

, placebo-controlled, parallel group investigation of the safety of repeat doses of AZ-004 (at time 0, 4 and 8 hours) in patients 18 to 65 years of age who were taking chronic antipsychotic medication.  Participants were randomly assigned to receive either 5 mg x 3 doses, 10 mg x 3 doses, 10 mg followed by two doses of 5 mg, or placebo x 3 doses.  

There were no clinically significant mean changes in heart rate or blood pressure (BP) with repeat dosing in subjects on chronic antipsychotic medication.  In the highest dose group (10 mg x 3 doses), mean changes from baseline in systolic BP were -1.75, -3.13, and -4.38 mm Hg at 10 minutes after the first, second and third doses, respectively.

The TQT study was a double-blind, double-dummy, active- and placebo-controlled, 3 period crossover study investigating the effect on the QT interval of single doses of 10 mg AZ-004, 400 mg oral moxifloxacin (active control) and placebo.  In the TQT study, AZ-004 did not increase QT intervals, as demonstrated by the upper bound of the one-sided 95% confidence intervals placed on the point estimate of the placebo-subtracted change of QTcI being less than 10 ms at all eleven post-dose time points.  Moxifloxacin significantly prolonged QTcI by the same metrics, demonstrating assay sensitivity.  There were no clinically significant mean changes in heart rate or BP following dosing with AZ-004.
