Sage Therapeutics and Biogen have reported topline results from the Phase 2 KINETIC Study evaluating SAGE-324 in the treatment of people with essential tremor (ET). The study achieved its primary endpoint of a statistically significant reduction from baseline compared to placebo.
“We are encouraged by the positive results of the KINETIC Study, which indicate that SAGE-324 may provide relief in people suffering with essential tremor, a movement disorder that affects an estimated 6.4 million people – and is one of the most common movement disorders – in the United States,” said Alfred Sandrock, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., Head of Research and Development at Biogen. “For people with essential tremor, uncontrollable shaking of the hands, head, voice, or legs can create difficulty eating, dressing, writing, and pursuing other day-to-day tasks. It is our hope that, in collaboration with Sage, we will be able to deliver an innovative and meaningful new treatment option for these patients…”(Source: Sage Therapeutics Website, 12 April, 2021)
