Late-Breaking Oral and Oral Presentations to feature M207 Acute Migraine Therapy
Zotrip Pivotal Trial Data Selected by Headache Society and Drug Delivery Meetings
FREMONT, Calif., June 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zosano Pharma Corporation (NASDAQ:ZSAN), a specialty pharmaceutical company that recently established a differentiated safety and efficacy profile in a pivotal trial with its lead product, M207, as an acute treatment for migraine, today announced that three conferences have accepted Zosano submissions for oral presentation at their annual meetings. Zosano will have a late-breaking oral presentation at the American Headache Society meeting in June, as well as an oral presentation at the International Headache Society meeting in September. In addition, Zosano has been selected to present at the Transdermal and Intradermal Drug Delivery Systems conference, also in September.
"The selection of our data for oral presentations at these key medical meetings underscores the need for new therapies for migraine patients," said Don Kellerman, Vice President of Clinical Development and Medical Affairs at Zosano. "We believe that it is important to increase awareness of M207 and its compelling clinical results among key opinion leaders as well as community physicians."
"The clearly differentiating data from our Zotrip trial highlights the potential of our lead migraine product as well as the underlying technology that has made its clinical results possible," said John Walker, Zosano's Interim CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors. "These presentations offer a forum to present M207 as a primary treatment option, if approved, for acute migraine sufferers who seek a therapeutic option that is both fast acting at onset and offers a durable response."

Migraine is the leading cause of disability among neurological disorders in the United States according to the American Migraine Foundation. Migraine symptoms can include moderate to severe headache pain combined with nausea and vomiting, or abnormal sensitivity to light and sound. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraine affects 30 million men, women and children in the United States. Most migraines last between four and 24 hours, but some last as long as three days. According to published studies, 63% of migraine patients experience between one and four migraines per month. According to Decision Resources, prescription drug sales for migraine in the top seven countries were estimated to be $3.3 billion in 2015, and are expected to grow to $4.4 billion in 2020. Triptans, a family of tryptamine-based drugs first sold in the 1990s, account for almost 75% of anti-migraine therapies prescribed at office visits.
M207 is our proprietary formulation of zolmitriptan coated onto our patented intracutaneous microneedle patch, which is then applied with our proprietary applicator to ensure uniform and consistent application. In February 2017, the Company announced statistically significant results from the ZOTRIP trial, 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 a Phase 1 trial, M207 demonstrated markedly faster absorption kinetics compared to oral zolmitriptan. The Company presented these results at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Headache Society.
