Item 8.01. Other Events.
On October 24, 2019, Zosano Pharma Corporation (the “Company”) announced that the Company has begun enrolling cluster headache patients in the ATAC clinical trial. This Phase 2/3 study will evaluate the efficacy of C213 for the acute treatment of cluster headache. C213 is the Company’s investigational proprietary formulation of zolmitriptan delivered utilizing its proprietary ADAM patch technology, which consists of titanium micro-projections coated with drug and is the same formulation as Qtrypta™, for the acute treatment of migraine.
The Company has begun enrolling patients in its Phase 2/3 study, in which approximately 120 adults who suffer from cluster headache will be randomized to receive 1.9 mg of C213, 3.8 mg of C213, or placebo in a 1:1:1 fashion. The co-primary endpoints of the study are the proportion of patients who achieve pain relief at 15 minutes and the proportion of patients whose pain relief is sustained from 15 minutes to 60 minutes.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements regarding the potential activity of C213 for treating cluster headache, the clinical trial of C213, and other future events and expectations. Readers are urged to consider statements that include the words “will,” “approximately” or the negative of those words or other comparable words to be uncertain and forward-looking. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict, and actual outcomes may differ materially. These include risks and uncertainties, without limitation, associated with the process of discovering, developing and commercializing products that are safe and effective for use as human therapeutics, risks inherent in the effort to build a business around such products and other risks and uncertainties described under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company's most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot in any way guarantee that the future results, level of activity, performance or events and circumstances reflected in forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur. All forward-looking statements are based on information currently available to the Company and the Company assumes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
