Novaremed Announces Publication of Phase 1 and Phase 2a Study Data With NRD.E1 Demonstrating the Potential of This Investigational Non-opioid Pain Treatment
Novaremed AG, a privately held clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on innovative non-opioid treatment options for chronic pain management announces the simultaneous publication of data from three Phase 1 studies in Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development and one Phase 2a, placebo-controlled, dose-finding, proof of concept study in European Journal of Pain with the Company’s lead investigational drug candidate NRD.E1, an innovative non-opioid therapy for painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
“We are delighted with the publication of our Phase 1 and Phase 2a studies which collectively demonstrate the drug candidate’s potential as an innovative non-opioid treatment option for patients with chronic pain,” said Eva Tiecke, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer and Head of R&D of Novaremed and lead author of both publications. “In the Phase 2a proof of concept study, the primary endpoint showed a clinically relevant placebo-corrected treatment effect in pain reductions at 40 and 150 mg/day of 0.82 Numerical Rating Scale points, p = 0.034 and 0.66, p= 0.061, respectively, though it narrowly missed the pre-specified value of p = 0.016 due to multiplicity. Overall, the study showed robust results given the consistent performance across multiple endpoints. Based on the data now published in peer-reviewed journals, we are encouraged about the potential of NRD.E1 to address the high unmet medical need for a non-opioid agent to treat chronic pain.”
In three Phase 1 studies NRD.E1 was well tolerated as single dose up to 1200 mg and repeated doses of 300 mg/day for five consecutive days. The studies revealed dose-dependent absorption, small increased exposure to NRD.E1 at peak when administered with food and no relevant accumulation after oral administration. The Phase 2a study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-finding, proof-of-concept study in 88 patients with PDPN. The study investigated NRD.E1 at 10, 40, or 150 mg/day or placebo over a 3-week treatment period. Primary, pre-specified secondary and post-hoc secondary endpoints analyses consistently demonstrate a clinically meaningful reduction in pain. NRD.E1 was safe and well tolerated.
