Tonix Pharmaceuticals reports that there is a potential new fibromyalgia drug for fibromyalgia sufferers which is the first in more than a decade!!!
Tonix Pharmaceuticals announced that “TNX-102 SL (cyclobenzaprine HCl sublingual tablets) met its pre-specified primary endpoint, significantly reducing daily pain compared to placebo (p=0.01) in participants with fibromyalgia in the Phase 3 RELIEF study (Table 1). TNX-102 SL is a novel, non-opioid, centrally-acting analgesic, taken once daily at bedtime, being developed for the management of fibromyalgia. RELIEF was a 14-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of TNX-102 SL 5.6 mg, in which 503 participants with fibromyalgia were randomized in a 1:1 ratio across 39 U.S. sites. All participants received one tablet of TNX-102 SL (2.8 mg) or placebo for the first two weeks, which was increased to two tablets of TNX-102 SL (5.6 mg) or placebo for the remaining 12 weeks.“
“Tonix is dedicated to improving the lives of the millions suffering from fibromyalgia, approximately 90% of whom are female, and the results of the RELIEF trial bring new hope to this community,” said Seth Lederman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Tonix Pharmaceuticals.
This is music to all fibromyalgia sufferers ears and hopefully something that will soon be available for sufferers to try. More details on the study can be found on Tonix Pharmaceutical website and also on Fed Up With Fatigue’s website which also has a link for any fibromyalgia patients who may wish participate in the trial.
