EMERYVILLE, Calif. - Adamas Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced in a press release that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued US Patent No. 9,072,697 entitled "Composition and Method for Treating Neurologic Disease." The claims of this patent are directed towards methods for the once-daily administration to Parkinson's patients of amantadine HCl formulations having specific dissolution profiles, including methods for osmotic delivery. The claims include products that are formulated as extended-release only or as a combination of both extended-release and immediate-release drugs.

"This patent, which was filed in 2005, represents an important expansion of our intellectual property surrounding ADS-5102 and is intended to cover products that we or others may seek to bring to market," said Gregory T. Went, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "We are committed to protecting our discoveries that have led to the ongoing development of extended-release amantadine formulations being evaluated for the treatment of neurological disorders."
Adamas' most advanced wholly owned product candidate is ADS-5102 (amantadine HCl), an extended-release version of amantadine that is administered once daily at bedtime. ADS-5102 is designed to achieve higher plasma concentrations in the early morning, sustained throughout the afternoon, and lower concentrations in the evening. Adamas is currently evaluating ADS-5102 in Phase 3 clinical trials for the treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) associated with Parkinson's disease and in a Phase 2 clinical trial for the treatment of major symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis in patients with walking impairment. There are currently no approved drugs in the United States or Europe for the treatment of LID.
Adamas Pharmaceutical Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company driven to improve the lives of those affected by chronic disorders of the central nervous system.
