EnVivo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Positive Phase 2b Clinical Data in Schizophrenia: EVP-6124 Meets Primary Endpoint with Statistically Significant Improvement in Cognition and Multiple Secondary Endpoints for Improvement in Function and Impact on Negative Symptoms

WATERTOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EnVivo Pharmaceuticals announced today positive topline results of its randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2b clinical trial of EVP-6124, its potent, orally bioavailable and selective alpha-7 agonist, in patients with schizophrenia. The data showed that EVP-6124 had a clinically meaningful and statistically significant impact on patients’ overall cognition - the trial’s pre-specified primary endpoint - when taken in combination with second-generation antipsychotics and as measured by the full CogState overall cognitive index, or “OCI” (p=0.05 for all patients treated with EVP-6124 versus placebo.) This positive effect on the OCI was supported by a strong positive trend for improved cognition on the MCCB Battery of cognition tests, which were conducted on all U.S. patients in the trial.
