PassPort Technologies, Inc. Initiated US Phase I Clinical Trial of Zolmitriptan Transdermal Microporation System for the Treatment of Acute Migraine



SAN DIEGO, Feb. 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- PassPort Technologies, Inc. (PPTI), based in San Diego, initiated a US Phase 1 clinical study of Zolmitriptan PassPort® utilizing its proprietary transdermal microporation system, PassPort® platform technology. The study objectives are to evaluate the safety of PassPort® system and pharmacokinetics to anticipate a faster onset of action compared to zolmitriptan oral tablet. Zolmitriptan, marketed under the brand name ZOMIG®, is an FDA-approved prescription medication used for treating migraine symptoms. "We believe our Zolmitriptan PassPort® provides significant advantages of faster onset of action and higher efficacy for migraine patients with severe nausea and patients who are non-responsive to oral triptans" said President and CEO Tomoyuki Fujisawa.
An open-label, randomized, crossover study consisting of 32 healthy volunteers is testing the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of Zolmitriptan PassPort® with 3 different doses, administered to the subject's upper arm, compared to oral administration of zolmitriptan. Additionally, the study will evaluate the transdermal administration of a single dose at alternative sites, the subject's abdomen and upper thigh. Interim pharmacokinetic data will be available to the public in March 2024.

PassPort® platform technology will be able to provide faster onset of action and higher efficacy benefiting severe migraine patients.
