NESS ZIONA, Israel, June 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroDerm, Ltd. announced today the successful enrollment and dosingin its Phase I clinical trial of ND0611. ND0611, a proprietary drug formula administered via a dermal patch, is designed to maintain continuous therapeutic levodopa concentrations for improving the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
This Phase 1 study was conducted in healthy volunteers with the purpose of measuring the safety and tolerability of ND0611 at different doses. Further analysis will be completed to determine the pharmacokinetic profile of levodopa in plasma. The company expects to present the results of this phase 1 study in the second half of 2010.
"The completion of this first step in the clinical development of ND0611 marks an important milestone in the path to develop a new therapeutic alternative for Parkinson's disease patients," said Oded S. Lieberman, PhD, NeuroDerm's Chairman and CEO. "While constant levodopa plasma concentrations achieved through continuous levodopa infusion have been shown to bring significant benefit to Parkinson's patients, these options are generally impractical. In contrast, ND0611 may offer a new treatment alternative that can be widely adopted for chronic control of the most common problems affecting Parkinson's disease."
NeuroDerm is an emerging pharmaceutical company that develops therapeutic dermal patches for the treatment of CNS diseases. NeuroDerm's technology is based on proprietary reformulations of well established oral drugs whose low bio-availability is the major impediment to better efficacy. The company's lead product is ND0611, a revolutionary skin patch for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Other products for the treatment of various diseases, including ADD, ADHD, schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease, are in different stages of development. NeuroDerm is headquartered in the Weizmann Science Park, Ness Ziona, Israel.
