BioXcel Therapeutics Announces Promising Topline Results from Clinical Trial for Bipolar Disorders or Schizophrenia Treatment

BioXcel Therapeutics (Nasdaq: BTAI) has announced promising results from a Phase 3 clinical trial of BXCL501, its proprietary, orally dissolving film of dexmedetomidine as a treatment for agitation in bipolar disorders or schizophrenia.

BXCL501 was well tolerated and demonstrated favorable safety results supporting potential for at-home use.

Highlights

SERENITY III is a two-part, double-blinded, placebo-controlled pivotal study designed to evaluate BXCL501 in acutely agitated adult patients with bipolar disorders or schizophrenia for at-home use.

Clinically meaningful efficacy results were observed with half (60mcg) of the approved dose of IGALMI™.

BioXcel is targeting up to an additional 23 million annual agitation episodes in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia patients in the at-home setting with its treatment. This would potentially more than double the company’s current market opportunity.

BXCL501 would represent the first-ever FDA approved therapy for at-home use in this indication, if approved.
