Aquinox Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AQXP) today announced results from secondary endpoints from its Phase 2 LEADERSHIP trial with AQX-1125 in patients with bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC). Aquinox also provided a general business update and reported financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2015.
"Consistently positive results from multiple secondary endpoints have strengthened our confidence in further development of AQX-1125 for BPS/IC," said Mr. David Main, President and CEO of Aquinox. "The encouraging effect of AQX-1125 observed on the primary endpoint of reduction in pain together with several statistically significant secondary endpoints, underscore the potential of AQX-1125 as a once daily, oral therapy for this debilitating disease."
"We believe the next steps for AQX-1125 in BPS/IC include finalizing our pivotal trial designs in consultation with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including the FDA and EMA, to set a path to potential approval," added Mr. Main.
Aquinox will host a conference call and live webcast on Thursday, August 6th, 2015 at 4:45 PM (ET) / 1:45 PM (PT) presenting additional results from the LEADERSHIP trial. Presentation slides will accompany the webcast and will be posted to the Aquinox website following completion of the call.
