LANTERN-2 Clinical Trial Aims at Reducing Use of Opioids

Bonti announced it has initiated dosing in its LANTERN-2 clinical trial, a Phase II clinical trial under Bonti?s LANTERN (Long-Acting NeuroToxin-E Relief, Non-opioid) clinical program aimed at treating focal muscle pain and reducing use of rescue medications, including opioids.

LANTERN-2 is a randomized, placebo-controlled, ascending dose, double-blind clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of intramuscular (IM) injections of Bonti?s therapeutic product candidate, EB-001T, in subjects undergoing elective abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) surgery. The primary endpoint in this trial will be reduction of post-operative pain at rest as measured by the Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) over the first 96 hours. Secondary endpoints include NPRS during activity and patient use of rescue medications, including opioids, to address unrelieved pain.

LANTERN-2 trial was based on favorable safety results from the recently completed LANTERN-1 clinical trial, which was Bonti?s first trial in the LANTERN program. EB-001T showed favorable safety in a wide dose range and was well tolerated, and in which the maximum tolerated dose was not reached. Learn more about EB-001T?at Bonti’s website.
