King Pharmaceuticals Initiates Phase II Clinical Trial Evaluating T-62 as a Treatment for Neuropathic Pain
News Dec 29, 2008
King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has announced that it has initiated the Phase II clinical trial program evaluating the efficacy and safety of T-62, an oral tablet formulation, the Company’s investigational drug for the treatment of neuropathic pain.
Dr. Eric Carter, Chief Science Officer of King, stated, “T-62, a new chemical entity, is an adenosine A1 allosteric enhancer that increases the effectiveness of the body’s endogenous adenosine to treat neuropathic pain. The successful development of this product would address a substantial unmet medical need for more effective medicines to treat this serious condition.”
The Phase II clinical trial is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study assessing the analgesic efficacy and safety of T-62 in subjects with postherpetic neuralgia and its associated pain.
The study is expected to enroll approximately 130 patients in up to 20 study centers and will evaluate two doses of T-62 and placebo utilizing a parallel design. Each patient will complete a 7-day screening period, a 28-day treatment period, and a 14-day post-treatment period.
