Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc Presents Data From Phase III Studies that Demonstrate Tasimelteon Restores Daily Cortisol Rhythm In Blind Patients With Non-24-Hour Disorder


Monday, 17 Jun 2013 07:00pm EDT 

Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc announced additional data at ENDO 2013, the Endocrine Society's 95th Annual Meeting, demonstrating that tasimelteon can entrain (synchronize) both melatonin and cortisol rhythms. This effect further confirms tasimelteon's potential to reset the master body clock and address the circadian desynchrony which is inherent in Non-24-Hour Disorder (Non-24). The SET (Safety and Efficacy of Tasimelteon) and RESET (Randomized-withdrawal study of the Efficacy and Safety of Tasimelteon to treat Non-24-Hour Disorder) Phase III studies were designed to assess the safety, efficacy and maintenance effect of tasimelteon for Non-24. Currently there is no approved FDA treatment for Non-24. The simultaneous entrainment of both melatonin and cortisol reinforces tasimelteon as a circadian regulator, resetting the master body clock in the suprachiasmatic (SCN) nucleus. Cortisol is a key regulatory hormone which exhibits a strong circadian rhythm, usually rising in the early morning and falling in the evening. The circadian regulation of cortisol is necessary for the human body to be prepared for a wide range of daily activities and physiologic functions, including blood pressure variation, utilization of fatty acids, circulating lymphocytes and immunity.
