- The design of Vanda's primary Phase III study changed numerous times, including a complete replacement of the primary endpoint just one month before study results were announced.
- The replacement primary endpoint installed to assess Tasimelteon's benefit was created by Vanda and has never been used before in sleep-drug clinical trials, nor was it endorsed by the FDA.
- Vanda was forced to cut in half the patient enrollment into the Tasimelteon clinical trials because totally blind patients with non-24 could not be identified. Even then, Vanda was only able to enroll patients by stretching the clinical definition of non-24.
- Tasimelteon was only able to demonstrate a benefit for non-24 patients by combining data from two phase III studies. Despite Vanda's claims to the contrary, the phase III studies may have actually failed on their own.
