Huntington's Disease Contract Update

IXICO plc, the data analytics company delivering insights in neuroscience, announces a further update to the Huntington's disease Phase III contract.

As previously announced on 23 March 2021, the client decided to stop dosing participants in its Phase III trial in Huntington's disease following a pre-planned review of the data.  In April 2021, it was announced that the client had agreed a revised protocol for these trials which provided for IXICO's safety and data analysis services to continue to be utilised to support further understanding of the trialled drug candidate data in an open-label extension.

The client has now confirmed that it will close its open-label extension study in Huntington's disease in May 2022 which is expected to result in a reduction in 2022 revenues of £0.3 million. This means that, including the loss of expected revenues for the remaining 3-year period of the contract, the Company now has an order book totalling £12.6 million.

The Company continues to have a strong pipeline of opportunities including with this client which is now in the early stages of designing a new Phase II clinical trial to explore different doses of the investigative drug in its ongoing efforts to identify a disease modifying treatment for Huntingdon's disease.
