Axsome Therapeutics Inc is presenting four posters on Sunosi (solriamfetol), approved for patients with excessive daytime sleepiness due to narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), at the 2023 Psych Congress, being held in Nashville from Sept 6-10. 

One poster will feature results from the SHARP study, a trial of Sunosi in 59 patients with excessive daytime sleepiness associated with OSA and impaired cognitive function. Positive topline results were announced in October 2022.

“These presentations explore the meaningful impact that our treatments could have for patients and underscore the unique pharmacology of our novel medicines which may be relevant to multiple clinical conditions,” says Cecilia Brain, MD, PhD, vice president of medical affairs at Axsome, in a release.

Key highlights include data examining the effects of Sunosi on cognition in patients with excessive daytime sleepiness and OSA and data examining treatment effect sizes of Sunosi in patients with excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy and OSA.
