Axsome Therapeutics Receives FDA Fast Track Designation for AXS-05
Axsome received a fast track designation from the FDA for AXS-05, developed for the treatment of agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
The drug is a combination of bupropion and dextromethorphan. Bupropion increases the bioavailability of dextromethorphan — an inhibitor of the serotonin and norepinephrine transporters.
Axsome Therapeutics previously received IND clearance from the FDA for a Phase II/III trial of AXS-05.
