FREMONT, CA –
The study entitled “A Phase II Tolerability and Efficacy Study of PDC-1421 Treatment in Adult Patients With Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Part II” is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving a total of approximately 100 patients in the United States and Taiwan. The Phase II part II clinical study continues the Phase II part I clinical study of ABV-1505. Phase II part I of the study successfully achieved the specified primary endpoints at UCSF and was accepted by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in October 2020.
“All of the subjects who completed the study showed a positive approach to the study during their participation,” said ABVC BioPharma Chief Executive Officer Uttam Patil, Ph. D. “Following the successful completion of the eight-week long treatment, we expect to hear a positive result in the interim analysis report and hope to continue the study in the next part by enrolling another thirty patients to complete the Phase II study. We expect our clinical trials will continue to demonstrate that plant medicine can have significant therapeutic benefits, often with few – if any – side effects.”
According to the Polaris market research report, the global ADHD treatment market was valued at $16.13 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $32.14 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period.
