FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zosano Pharma Corporation (Nasdaq: ZSAN) (“Zosano” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing therapies that deliver rapid systemic absorption by leveraging its novel and proprietary technology, Adhesive Dermally-Applied Microneedle System (“ADAM™”), today announced that it will host a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) meeting focusing on new treatments for migraine and the migraine patients’ perspective on Wednesday, October 24th, in New York City.
The meeting will feature presentations by KOLs Stewart J. Tepper, M.D. (Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center) and Lawrence C. Newman, M.D. (NYU Langone) who will discuss updates on newly emerging treatments for the prevention of migraine, including CGRP antibodies, neurostimulation devices and new acute drug treatment products. In addition, the migraine patients’ perspective will be presented and discussed to provide context. Both KOLs will be available to answer questions at the conclusion of the event.
Members of Zosano’s management team will provide an overview of the clinical development of ADAM Zolmitriptan (M207). In February 2017, the Company announced statistically significant results from the ZOTRIP pivotal study, which demonstrated that the 3.8mg dose of M207 met both co-primary endpoints, achieving pain freedom and most bothersome symptom freedom at two hours. In November 2017, the Company announced the initiation of its long-term safety study evaluating M207 and expects to file a New Drug Application with the FDA for M207 in the fourth quarter of 2019.

M207 is Zosano’s proprietary formulation of zolmitriptan delivered utilizing its proprietary ADAM technology. Zosano's ADAM technology consists of titanium microprojections (microneedles) coated with drug, and in the case of M207, its formulation of zolmitriptan. The drug-coated microneedles penetrate into the epidermis and dermis, where the drug is dissolved and enters into the bloodstream. In February 2017, the Company announced statistically significant results from the ZOTRIP pivotal study, which demonstrated that the 3.8mg dose of M207 met both co-primary endpoints, achieving pain freedom and most bothersome symptom freedom at 2 hours. In November 2017, the Company announced the initiation of its long-term safety study evaluating M207 and expects to file a New Drug Application for M207 in the fourth quarter of 2019.
