Cerecor Inc. (NASDAQ: CERC) announced that it has completed patient enrollment in its Phase 2 clinical trial for CERC-301, Clin301-203, as an oral, rapidly acting adjunctive treatment of major depressive disorder (“MDD”). The Company now expects to report top-line data from this trial in November 2016.

Cerecor launched its Phase 2 clinical trial with CERC-301 for the adjunctive treatment of MDD in September 2015. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial enrolled 115 subjects with MDD who experienced a severe depressive episode despite stable ongoing treatment with either a serotonin reuptake inhibitor or a serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. The trial includes two intermittent dose administrations seven days apart, followed by 14 days of observation. The primary objective of the trial is to evaluate the antidepressant effect of CERC-301 in 12 mg and 20 mg dosages compared to placebo as assessed by the six-item unidimensional subset of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale.
