CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Mar. 1, 2016 – CoLucid Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLCD), a Phase 3 clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that is developing its lead product candidate, lasmiditan, for the acute treatment of migraine, has announced that it has received a Special Protocol Agreement for its second pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial, called SPARTAN, from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). The objective of SPARTAN is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of lasmiditan (50 mg, 100 mg and 200 mg) in comparison to placebo two hours after dosing on freedom from migraine headache pain, which is the primary endpoint, and on freedom from the most bothersome associated symptom of migraine (nausea, phonophobia or photophobia), which is the key secondary endpoint. SPARTAN is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel group study. The study is expected to treat a single migraine in up to 2,226 migraine patients with lasmiditan at approximately 130 sites in the U.S., United Kingdom and Germany. CoLucid expects migraine patients enrolled in SPARTAN will include those who also have one or more cardiovascular risk factors, stable cardiovascular disease or known coronary artery disease (“CAD”).
