Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. Announces Board Changes

Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. announced changes to the composition of its board of directors. Sandesh (Sandy) Mahatme has been appointed to the board of directors, effective July 22, 2014. He has also been appointed as Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Board. Mr. Mahatme currently serves as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Sarepta Therapeutics. In addition, Flexion Board member Rafaéle Tordjman, Managing Partner at Sofinnova Partners, is stepping down from the Board. Mr. Mahatme became Sarepta's Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer in November 2012. He is currently responsible for the finance, investor relations, facilities, IT and corporate communications functions at Sarepta.

Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. Announces Positive Topline Results from Phase 2a Pharmacokinetic Trial with Lead Compound FX006

Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. announced positive topline clinical trial results from a Phase 2a synovial fluid PK study of FX006, which demonstrated, for the first time, that a single intra-articular (IA) injection of FX006 can provide therapeutic concentrations of drug in joint fluid for at least 12 weeks. FX006 is Flexion's novel, non-opioid, sustained-release, IA formulation of TCA. It is designed to provide prolonged pain relief for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, while potentially avoiding untoward systemic effects associated with immediate-release steroids. These FX006 data represent a six-fold increase in the duration of joint residency compared with immediate-release TCA, which is the current standard of care injectable therapy. It is also noteworthy that a prior PK study of FX006 demonstrated that the peak plasma concentration in the hours following injection was decreased 40-fold relative to immediate-release TCA, a decrease that may meaningfully reduce adverse systemic side effects. In this multi-center, open-label study of 50 patients with OA of the knee, researchers assigned patients sequentially to one of five groups that received a single IA injection of either 10 or 40 mg of FX006 or 40 mg of immediate-release TCA. Synovial fluid concentrations of drug were measured at 12 weeks in all dose groups and also at 16 and 20 weeks in the FX006 40 mg dose group. At 12 weeks both the FX006 10 mg and 40 mg dose groups had therapeutic concentrations of drug in synovial fluid. In contrast, the 40 mg immediate-release TCA dose group had concentrations of drug that were below the lower limit of quantitation. The FX006 40 mg dose group also demonstrated readily measurable concentrations of drug at 16 weeks, which fell to below the lower limit of quantitation at 20 weeks.
