Eli Lilly has announced the decision to stop ongoing clinical studies investigating pomaglumetad methionil, also known as mGlu2/3, for the treatment of patients suffering from Schizophrenia. The decision was made after a recently conducted independent futility analysis concluded HBBN, the second of Lilly's two pivotal studies, was unlikely to be positive in its primary efficacy endpoint if enrolled to completion. The decision was not based on any safety signals. Additionally, the recently completed Phase II study, HBCO, which investigated pomaglumetad methionil as an adjunctive treatment with atypical antipsychotics, did not meet its primary endpoint.
