Neurelis Announces Nine Poster Presentations At The Annual Meeting Of The American Epilepsy Society

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurelis, Inc., a privately held specialty pharmaceutical company focused on licensing, developing and commercializing product candidates for epilepsy and the broader central nervous system market,  announced today that the company will have nine poster presentations at the annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society being held December 6-10 in Baltimore, Maryland.

"During the ongoing clinical development program of the investigational product VALTOCO, over 2,000 seizures have been treated," said Craig Chambliss, President and CEO of Neurelis. "As a result, we have been able to accumulate a wealth of administration and safety data of VALTOCO use in epilepsy patients experiencing cluster seizures. We are very pleased to be presenting nine posters at AES that support the rigorous science behind VALTOCO. These presentations have been made possible by the outstanding participation of our investigators, their dedicated staff and, most significantly, the patients who participated in these important studies."

The details for the poster presentations are as follows:

About VALTOCO

The company's investigational product candidate, VALTOCO® (diazepam nasal spray), is currently under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for intermittent use in adults and children 6 years and older with epilepsy, on stable regimens of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), to control bouts of increased seizure activity, often referred to as cluster or acute repetitive seizures (ARS). 

VALTOCO is a proprietary formulation of diazepam, incorporating the unique combination of a vitamin E–based solution and Intravail® transmucosal absorption enhancement technology. Despite the availability of chronic, daily oral medications to control epilepsy, it is estimated that 170,000 individuals in the United States are at risk for cluster or acute repetitive seizures. In a long-term, open-label, repeat-dose, clinical trial, the safety of VALTOCO was evaluated: 132 patients were enrolled and 2,274 seizures were treated. Approximately 92% of the seizures treated with a single dose of VALTOCO did not require a second dose within at least 24 hours. The most common adverse reactions (> 2.0%) observed in clinical studies with epilepsy patients included: nasal discomfort (4.7%), dysgeusia (2.1%), epistaxis (2.1%), and headache (2.1%).
