LP352 is an oral, centrally acting, 5-HT2C superagonist in development for the potential treatment of seizures associated with DEEs such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, Dravet syndrome, SCN2A-related epilepsies, CDKL5 deficiency disorder, and other epileptic disorders. LP352 is designed to modulate GABA and, as a result, suppress the central hyperexcitability that is characteristic of seizures. LP352 has novel chemistry and attributes, and was designed to be highly specific and selective for the 5-HT2C receptor subtype, giving it the potential to reduce seizures in patients with DEEs while overcoming the known or perceived safety limitations of available drugs in the 5-HT2 class. LP352 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1b/2a clinical trial (the PACIFIC Study) in participants with DEEs, with topline data expected around year-end 2023, as well as in additional supportive studies.

The PACIFIC Study will also evaluate change in seizure frequency over the treatment period. The study enrolled 52 participants with a variety of treatment resistant seizures that fall into the category of DEE across approximately 30 study sites in
