Lundbeck and its development partner Takeda have announced positive Phase II results for Lu AA21004, a treatment for depression. Study data showed significant improvements on the primary efficacy endpoints with both 5 and 10 mg compared to placebo. Lundbeck and Takeda will plan the next steps for Lu A21004 development after the Phase II data has been fully analyzed.
This Phase II data is a much-needed dose of good news for the company. Lundbeck recently suffered a setback with the failure of its sleep aid gaboxadolÂ and stroke drug Desmoteplase. The Denmark-based developer still needs to acquire additional drug candidates to boost its business.
