  1. LONDON, Sept. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ:GWPH) ("GW", "the Company" or "the Group"), a world leader in discovering, developing and delivering regulatory approved cannabis-based medicines, today announces that the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved EPIDYOLEX® (cannabidiol) for the treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) or Dravet syndrome in patients two years of age and older.

    This represents GW's cannabis-based medicine's third global regulatory approval, following US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2018 and European Commission (EC) approval in 2019. GW has partnered with Chiesi Australia to make this medicine available in Australia, and…

    LONDON, Sept. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ:GWPH) ("GW", "the Company" or "the Group"), a world leader in discovering, developing and delivering regulatory approved cannabis-based medicines, today announces that the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved EPIDYOLEX® (cannabidiol) for the treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) or Dravet syndrome in patients two years of age and older.

    This represents GW's cannabis-based medicine's third global regulatory approval, following US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2018 and European Commission (EC) approval in 2019. GW has partnered with Chiesi Australia to make this medicine available in Australia, and the Company will now work alongside its partner and Australia's Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) to secure reimbursement for the medicine through a listing on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).

    "GW was founded over two decades ago with a mission to bring cannabis-based medicines to patients with an unmet medical need. We are proud to now be able to bring GW's cannabidiol to patients in Australia following this approval and our partnership with Chiesi Australia," said Chris Tovey, GW's Chief Operating Officer. "This marks our third global regulatory approval and is another important step for GW and the patients we are here to support. The TGA approval is further proof that cannabis-based medicines can successfully go through extensive randomised placebo-controlled trials and a rigorous evaluation process to reach patients who need them."

    "We are delighted to announce the TGA registration of EPIDYOLEX®, an important step forward for the management of LGS and Dravet syndrome. We are working closely with the Department of Health to achieve greater access to this medicine as soon as possible," said Chris Rossidis, General Manager, Chiesi Australia.

    The approval of GW's cannabidiol is based on results from four randomised, controlled Phase 3 trials. These studies incorporate data from more than 714 patients with either LGS or Dravet syndrome, two rare forms of epilepsy with high morbidity and mortality rates, which place a significant burden on families and caregivers. Many patients with LGS or Dravet syndrome have multiple seizures per day, which puts them at ongoing risk of falls and injury. Despite current anti-epileptic drug treatment, both of these severe forms of epilepsy remain highly treatment-resistant.1,2,3

    CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ:GWPH, GW, the Company or the Group))), a world leader in the science, development, and commercialization of cannabinoid prescription medicines, along with U.S. subsidiary Greenwich Biosciences, will present results of a survey conducted in partnership with the North American Research Committee on Multiple Sclerosis (NARCOMS) -- the world's largest voluntary, patient-driven MS registry1 -- highlighting the prevalence of cannabis use among people with MS. The survey found nearly one-third of U.S.-based participants had tried THC-containing cannabis for their MS symptoms at least once, with 20 percent reporting cannabis use within the past 30 days.

    The survey results will be presented at MSVirtual2020, the joint meeting of the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS). The NARCOMS Survey abstract (P0439) can be found here. The data will be made available virtually at 9:00 AM EST on Friday, September 11, 2020.

    "The use of unapproved, unregulated, THC-containing cannabis by people with MS underscores that these patients' needs are not being met by existing approved medicines and reinforces the need for a new FDA-regulated option," said Justin Gover, GW's Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to advance the clinical development of cannabinoid therapies that meet the rigor of FDA review with the goal of delivering an approved THC-containing treatment to the MS community in the future." 

    The NARCOMS survey, which included more than 3,000 people with MS, found that over 60 percent of respondents reported experiencing spasticity, pain, or sleep problems. Of those surveyed, 1,012 respondents (31 percent) indicated they had used THC-containing cannabis for their MS symptoms at least once: 51 percent reported using cannabis to treat spasticity, 44 percent to treat pain, and 38 percent to support sleep. There were 636 (20 percent) respondents who reported current use of cannabis for their MS, while 376 (11.6 percent) reported prior use.

    "Spasticity, pain and sleep issues significantly impact the daily lives and quality of life of people living with MS," said Dr. Amber Salter, Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at Washington University School of Medicine. "Our data demonstrate that many people have tried cannabis products to manage symptoms, supporting the need for research in this area."

    About the Cannabis Use Among People with MS: A 2020 NARCOMS Survey

    The objective of the 2020 NARCOMS survey was to evaluate the contemporary prevalence of cannabis use among persons with MS, and demographic factors associated with cannabis use for MS symptom management. The online survey results included 3,249 respondents, the majority of whom were female (78.5 percent) and Caucasian (88.5 percent). Respondents had an average age of 61 years and median disability level using Patient Determined Disease Steps (PDDS) scale of 3 (Gait Disability), with the 25th to 75th percentile ranging from 1 (Mild Disability) to 6 (Bilaterial Support). The average age of respondents at the onset of MS symptoms was 31 years.

    About NARCOMS

    CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ:GWPH, GW, the Company or the Group))), a world leader in the science, development, and commercialization of cannabinoid prescription medicines, along with U.S. subsidiary Greenwich Biosciences, today announced that the Company will present positive data from two analyses of Phase 3 clinical trials of nabiximols in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS)-associated spasticity. Results showed that nabiximols was well tolerated and provided continued reductions in spasticity for those who remained on therapy while having no notable negative effects on cognition, depression, or suicidality.

    The data are planned for presentation at MSVirtual2020, the 8th joint meeting of the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) on September 11 at 8:00 AM EST. Nabiximols, known as Sativex® outside of the U.S., is preparing to enter pivotal Phase 3 development in the U.S.

    "We are pleased to share these study results, which highlight additional clinical evidence of the favorable safety profile and efficacy of nabiximols, with the medical community at MSVirtual2020," said Justin Gover, GW's Chief Executive Officer. "Nabiximols has the potential to offer people with MS-related spasticity the first rigorously tested and FDA-regulated cannabis medicine for the condition, which remains a significant unmet therapeutic need in the U.S., and we look forward to initiating our Phase 3 development program this year in pursuit of that goal."

    The first presentation (P1109) includes results from a post-hoc analysis of a Phase 3 clinical trial (GWSP0604) conducted in two phases (A & B) to assess the favorable safety profile and potential clinical efficacy of nabiximols in persons with MS-associated spasticity. Phase A of the analysis (4 weeks) evaluated the safety profile of nabiximols in responders vs nonresponders; all participants received nabiximols in this single-blind phase and 266 were labeled responders to treatment with nabiximols out of 572 enrolled. Results from Phase A showed that fewer responders reported an adverse event (AE) compared to those who did not respond to treatment (40 percent vs. 53 percent). AEs were similar between the groups, except dizziness, which occurred more frequently in nonresponders vs responders (18 percent vs 10 percent). At the end of Phase A, mean percent decrease in spasticity numeric rating scale (NRS) was 44 percent for responders vs 3 percent for nonresponders.

    In Phase B, 241 of the 266 responders from Phase A were randomized to nabiximols (n=124) or placebo (n=117) to evaluate the potential clinical efficacy of nabiximols vs placebo (12 weeks). At the end of Phase B, those receiving nabiximols experienced a significantly greater mean percent decrease in spasticity numeric rating scale (NRS) from Phase A baseline compared to placebo (46 percent vs 34 percent; P=0.011) as well as a significantly greater mean percent decrease in spasm frequency (44 percent for nabiximols vs 24 percent for placebo; P=0.006). More caregivers of participants on nabiximols also reported an improvement from Phase A baseline on the Caregiver Global Impression of Change (CGIC) scale (68 percent for nabiximols vs 43 percent for placebo). During Phase B, 53 percent of participants on nabiximols reported one or more new AEs vs 49 percent on placebo.

    Overall results showed that nabiximols was well tolerated and provided continued benefit to individuals who remained on therapy.

    "This analysis further clarifies the potential clinical efficacy and favorable safety profile of nabiximols for the treatment of MS-associated spasticity, where there has been little therapeutic innovation in decades in the United States," said Dr. Aliza Ben-Zacharia, Multiple Sclerosis Consultant/Researcher, Assistant Professor Mount Sinai Phillips School of Nursing and Assistant Professor at Hunter College. "Advancing the clinical development of nabiximols in the U.S. may provide a viable and clinically-proven treatment option for people living with MS and dealing with the challenges of spasticity." 

    The second virtual presentation (P1094) will share results of an assessment of the impact of nabiximols on other outcomes, such as cognition, depressive symptoms, and suicidality in persons with MS-associated spasticity. The analysis used data from two placebo-controlled, randomized trials: GWSP0604 (referenced above) (12 weeks) and GWMS1137 (48 weeks). Mood and suicidality were assessed using the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II). In GWMS1137, suicidality was additionally assessed using the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) and working memory/processing speed was assessed using the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT). Results of the analysis showed that nabiximols had no notable negative effects on cognition, depression, or suicidality.

    "Concerns related to the mental health impact of unregulated cannabinoid therapies remain and this analysis sought to determine whether nabiximols had any such risks within the MS populations studied," said Dr. John DeLuca, Senior Vice President for Research, Kessler Foundation, and Professor, Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and of Neurology, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. "The results are promising and show that nabiximols, a well-studied cannabinoid therapy, did not increase the risk of cognitive impairment, depression, or suicide."

    GW, and its U.S. subsidiary Greenwich Biosciences, plan to advance the nabiximols clinical development program in the U.S. with five pivotal Phase 3 trials through the end of 2020 and into 2021.
