MediciNova Met With FDA Monday for End-of-Phase 2 for MN-221 for the Treatment of Acute Exacerbations of Asthma

MediciNova (NASDAQ: MNOV) today announced that it conducted an End-of-Phase 2 meeting pertaining to the development of MN-221 for the treatment of acute exacerbations of asthma with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) earlier today.

MN-221 is a novel, highly selective beta(2)-adrenergic receptor agonist in development for the treatment of acute exacerbations of asthma and COPD. An acute asthma or COPD exacerbation is defined as a long-lasting and severe episode that is not responsive to the standard bronchodilator or corticosteroid therapy. Patients with an asthma/COPD exacerbation typically go to the emergency room (ER) for treatment. If treatment in the ER is not successful, the patient may be admitted to the hospital.
