- On May 1, XenoPort completed the reacquisition of the exclusive rights to commercialize Horizant ® (gabapentin enacarbil) Extended-Release Tablets in the United States from Glaxo Group Limited (GSK). XenoPort’s full promotional plan commenced upon product availability in June.
- XenoPort announced the inclusion of gabapentin enacarbil, the active ingredient in Horizant, as a first-line therapy in new treatment guidelines created by the Task Force of the International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group (IRLSSG) and published in Sleep Medicine (Vol 14; p 675; 2013). Horizant is the only non-dopamine agonist and the only alpha-2-delta ligand approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of moderate-to-severe primary restless legs syndrome in adults (RLS).
- XenoPort continued to advance the development of its novel fumarate compound, XP23829. Results of thirteen-week toxicology studies, a Phase 1 radiolabeled XP23829 metabolism and disposition study and a Phase 1 multiple ascending dose study that is examining the pharmacokinetics of two formulations of XP23829 and Tecfidera™ (dimethyl fumarate) at its approved dose, are expected later in the third quarter of 2013.
- XenoPort completed a Phase 3 clinical trial of arbaclofen placarbil (AP) as a potential treatment of spasticity in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The trial was unsuccessful in demonstrating that AP provided statistically significant improvement relative to placebo in the co-primary endpoints of the study. As a result, XenoPort decided to terminate further investment in AP as a treatment for spasticity in patients with MS.
