A Phase 2 Trial Evaluating SNC-102 in Drug-Induced Tardive Dyskinesia
A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial Evaluating the Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacokinetic Behavior of Orally Administered SNC-102 in Subjects With Drug-Induced Tardive Dyskinesia
Lead SponsorSynchroneuron Inc.
Indication/ConditionDrug-induced Tardive Dyskinesia
This Phase 2 study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SNC-102 in subjects with drug-induced Tardive Dyskinesia (TD). To ensure an adequate evaluation of SNC-102, a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial was designed. Two dosing levels of SNC-102 are employed to evaluate the proposed dosing range. A target enrollment of 90 subjects with drug-induced TD will provide sufficient data to assess the efficacy and safety profiles of SNC-102 in the target population.
Acamprosate calcium (SNC-102) tablet, administered orally for 4 weeks
Placebo tablet, administered orally for 4 weeks
Inclusion Criteria: Males and females 18-75 years of age. Diagnosis, at least 3 months prior to the Screening Visit, of drug-induced TD AIMS ≥3 (moderate or worse) for ≥1 body area, or AIMS = 2 (mild) for ≥2 body areas; and >3 months exposure to antipsychotic drug or metoclopramide; and Other causes of dyskinesia have been ruled out. AIMS score is confirmed at the Screening Visit by the Principal Investigator and the Trial Reading Center, and at the Baseline Visit at least 1 week later by the Principal Investigator. If using antipsychotic medication or metoclopramide, dose has been stable for at least 60 days prior to the Baseline Visit and is expected to remain stable through the course of the trial. If using opioid medication, dose has been stable for at least 14 days prior to the Baseline Visit and is expected to remain stable through the course of the trial. If using vitamin or dietary supplements, dose and type has been stable for at least 14 days prior to the Baseline Visit and is expected to remain stable through the course of the trial. If using alcohol, willingness to limit intake to no more than 2 drinks/day through the course of participation in the trial, and to abstain for at least 12 hours prior to any assessment visit. Exclusion Criteria: Unstable psychiatric status, as indicated by any change in psychotropic medication (unless approved by the Sponsor), or by hospitalization, within 60 days prior to the Screening Visit. Active drug or alcohol dependence or abuse. Current use of cocaine, amphetamine, phencyclidine (PCP), or ketamine, documented either by history or by urinary drug screening at Screening and Baseline Visits. Drugs used to treat attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder are allowed if stable for at least 14 days prior to the Baseline Visit and are expected to remain stable through the course of the trial. Risk of significant medication non-adherence, based on the judgment of the Principal Investigator. Neurologic or psychiatric disorder that could interfere with the attribution of observed involuntary movements to TD, such as a primary movement disorder unrelated to medication. History of neuroleptic malignant syndrome. Significant risk, in the judgment of the Principal Investigator, of suicidal or violent behavior. Receipt of new medication for the treatment of TD within 4 weeks prior to the Baseline Visit or anticipated while participating in the trial. Initiation of oral contraceptive medication, or change in dose, within 30 days prior to the Screening Visit, or anticipated while participating in the trial. Gastrointestinal disease such as short-bowel or other malabsorption syndrome which, in the judgment of the Principal Investigator, could interfere with absorption of orally-administered medication.
