- Presenting data evaluating LP352 engagement of central 5-HT2C receptors via effects on prolactin, and assessing binding activity and functional agonism of LP352 at the 5-HT2 receptors
- Hosting scientific exhibit highlighting the ongoing Phase 1b/2a PACIFIC Study, and LP352, a novel, highly selective 5-HT2C superagonist in development for rare seizure disorders
LA JOLLA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2022-- Longboard Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: LBPH), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel, transformative medicines for neurological diseases, today announced that it will present data for LP352, a novel, highly selective investigational treatment in development for seizures associated with a range of developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (DEEs), in two poster sessions at the 2022 AES Annual Meeting. Longboard will also host a scientific exhibit with members of its leadership team to highlight details of the ongoing PACIFIC study, and to discuss LP352 as a potential best-in-class therapy for people living with rare seizure disorders.

About Longboard Pharmaceuticals
Longboard Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel, transformative medicines for neurological diseases. Longboard is working to advance a portfolio of centrally acting product candidates designed to be highly selective for specific G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Longboard’s small molecule product candidates are based on more than 20 years of GPCR research. Longboard is evaluating LP352, an oral, centrally acting 5-hydroxytryptamine 2C (5-HT2C) receptor superagonist, with negligible observed impact on 5-HT2B and 5-HT2A receptor subtypes, in development for the potential treatment of seizures associated with a broad range of developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (DEEs). LP352 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1b/2a clinical trial, the PACIFIC Study, for the potential treatment of seizures associated with DEEs. Longboard is also evaluating LP659, a centrally acting, sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptor subtypes 1 and 5 modulator, in development for the potential treatment of multiple neurological diseases, and LP143, a centrally acting, full cannabinoid type 2 receptor (CB2) agonist, in development for the potential treatment of central nervous system diseases and disorders.
