Unlocking the clinical trial potential of Africa

Ongoing improvements around infrastructure, continued investment, and being home to one of the world’s largest working age populations, means that Africa’s role in the clinical trials market has transformed. In this whitepaper, Oximio outlines the dynamics of today’s clinical trial market in Africa, including the key challenges the region is facing and how sponsors can overcome them to unlock the continent’s growing potential.

JZP-110 is a selective dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (DNRI).

Results from the 12-week, four-arm, parallel-group, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised TONES 2 trial showed statistically significant improvement in the co-primary endpoints of the maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT) and the epworth sleepiness scale (ESS).

The trial assessed the safety and efficacy of 300mg, 150mg and 75mg of JZP-110 in 240 patients over a period of 12 weeks.

"The adverse events (AEs) observed in the TONES 2 trial were found to be consistent with those observed in prior Phase II trials of JZP-110 in narcolepsy."

Jazz Pharmaceuticals research and development global head and chief medical officer Karen Smith said: "Excessive sleepiness in narcolepsy remains an important unmet medical need, and we believe that the statistically and clinically significant effect observed in this study indicates that JZP-110 could be an important treatment option for patients.

"Subject to completion of the data analysis and our regulatory discussions with FDA, we expect to submit the JZP-110 NDA for excessive sleepiness in obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy in late-2017."

The secondary endpoints of the patient global impression of change (PGIc) scale at doses of 300mg and 150mg were also found to be favourable in comparison to placebo.

The adverse events (AEs) observed in the TONES 2 trial were found to be consistent with those observed in prior Phase II trials of JZP-110 in narcolepsy.

The TONE 2 trial is part of the TONES Phase III programme, which includes three other clinical trials, two of which are inobstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and one open-label study for long-term safety and efficacy maintenance.
