Investment summary

Paion announced positive top-line results from a Phase III trial of remimazolam for procedural sedation in bronchoscopy in June, adding to the positive results of a Phase III colonoscopy trial. It has successfully completed Phase I studies to assess abuse potential, the final step of its US clinical development program. In the bronchoscopy trial 82.5% of patients on remimazolam achieved the primary outcome vs 3.4% on placebo and 34.8% on midazolam. While replacing midazolam as the primary target, planned changes in the US reimbursement of day procedures favouring less supervision by anaesthetists could further incentivise uptake of remimazolam. €29.6m cash at 30 September is sufficient to complete ongoing development and to file for procedural sedation in the US (filing by partner Cosmo expected H218), as well as a Japanese filing for remimazolam in general anaesthesia (GA, expected by mid-2018). Paion is seeking a partner in Japan. Paion has outlined a €20-25m programme that could see it restart Phase III studies in GA in Europe.

Industry outlook

Remimazolam has important advantages over competing products, including fast onset and offset of action with lower risk of cardiopulmonary events than the standard of care midazolam and propofol, and a reversal agent exists if there is over sedation.
