Seelos Therapeutics Announces Positive Topline Data For SLS-002 intra nasal Racemic Ketamine.
SLS-002 had a high tolerance, with 47% of patients having a minimum of one treatment-emergent negative event. There was no consequential negative event, and all adverse events were significantly mild, usually transient in nature, with no new safety signals found.
No negative scenarios linked to blood pressure or other vital sign variation were reported in this study population. The most seen treatment emergent adverse events (three subjects each) were inclusive of headache, dizziness, and feeling abnormal.
Four subjects stopped the trial before it had officially finished. Two withdrew consent, one had a negative event not related to study drug, and one was lost to follow up. All four were administered with less than 5 doses and had a clinically immense reduction in measures of suicidality – scoring a zero on the S-STS total score, and three of the four subjects had a decline on both the CGIS-SI/B, and the PGIS-SI/B.
Announcement to commence underwritten offering failed to induce adequate investor interest due to terms and conditions not exceeding shareholder expectations, however topline positive data may potentially provide SEEL stock some stability in the foreseeable future.
