(NASDAQ:NERV), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of therapies to treat central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced the completion of patient enrollment in a randomized, placebo-controlled double-blind European Phase IIa clinical trial of MIN-117 in major depressive disorder (MDD).

Additional objectives include the assessment of onset to response, severity of illness, sexual function, executive function, working memory, and safety and tolerability. Eighty-four patients have been enrolled across the four treatment arms of this study (0.5 and 2.5 mg daily of MIN-117, placebo, and 20 mg daily of paroxetine). Top line results are expected in the second quarter of 2016.
