ABOUT BEXICASERIN (LP352)

Bexicaserin is an oral, centrally acting, 5-HT2C superagonist in development for the potential treatment of seizures associated with DEEs such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, Dravet syndrome, SCN2A-related epilepsies, CDKL5 deficiency disorder, and other epileptic disorders. Bexicaserin is designed to modulate GABA and, as a result, suppress the central hyperexcitability that is characteristic of seizures. Bexicaserin has novel chemistry and attributes, and was designed to be highly specific and selective for the 5-HT2C receptor subtype, giving it the potential to reduce seizures in patients with DEEs while overcoming the known or perceived safety limitations of available drugs in the 5-HT2 class.

ABOUT THE PACIFIC STUDY

The PACIFIC Study is a Phase 1b/2a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to assess the safety, tolerability, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of bexicaserin (LP352) in 52 participants between the ages of 12 and 65 years old at 34 sites across the U.S. and Australia. Following a 5-week screening period and baseline evaluations, study participants initiated a dose titration over a 15-day period and subsequently continued on the highest tolerated dose throughout the maintenance period of 60 days. Following the maintenance period, participants were then titrated down and eligible participants were given the opportunity to enroll in a 52-week open-label extension program. The primary efficacy measure is median percent change from baseline in countable motor seizure frequency over the 75-day treatment period.
