STANS, Switzerland, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NLS Pharma Group (NLS Pharma), a Swiss biotech group focusing on the development of novel treatments for ADHD, sleep disorders, and cognitive impairments, announced today that its "Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Phase II Study to Determine the Efficacy, Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of a Controlled Release (CR) Formulation of Mazindol in Adults with DSM-5 Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)," NLS-1001, has met its primary and secondary endpoints.
"The promising results of NLS-1, our lead ADHD compound, in the Phase II study are very encouraging and demonstrate the potential for Mazindol CR (NLS-1) to make a difference in the lives of patients suffering from ADHD across the world," said Alex Zwyer, CEO of NLS Pharma.
NLS Pharma is investigating NLS-1 as a potential alternative to conventional first-line treatments in ADHD. Drug discovery scientists at NLS Pharma hypothesize that the performance exhibited by NLS-1 in the Phase 2 trial may be explained by the molecule's unique Mechanism of Action (MoA) in potentially regulating the orexins system in the hypothalamus. The clinical potential of Mazindol to improve ADHD symptoms was first observed in an open label pilot study which assessed the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of mazindol in children with ADHD (MAZDAH study).
NLS Pharma will host exhibit booth #955 at the annual scientific meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) being held May 20–24 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.
