The Drug Product ZYN002 is a transdermal CBD gel. CBD is the primary non-euphoric cannabinoid contained in the Cannabis sativa L. plant. The CBD contained within ZYN002 is a pharmaceutically produced Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) that is chemically identical to the CBD present in Cannabis. ZYN002 is currently being evaluated in clinical trials in children and adolescents with Fragile X Syndrome (FXS), autism spectrum disorder, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, and developmental and epileptic encephalopathies. The safety and efficacy of ZYN002 in the treatment of behavioral symptoms in children and adolescents with FXS has been evaluated in three studies: Study ZYN2-CL-009, a completed open-label, multiple-center, multiple-dose study (n=20); Study ZYN2-CL-016, a completed randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-center study (n=212 randomized); and Study ZYN2-CL-017, an ongoing open-label extension and expanded access study to assess the long-term safety and tolerability of ZYN002 (n=240). The present protocol for ZYN2-CL-033 (RECONNECT) is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ZYN002 for the treatment and behavioral symptoms in children and adolescents with genetic evidence of full mutation FXS. Qualified subjects that complete ZYN2-CL-033 will have the opportunity to roll over to the open label ZYN2-CL-017 study.
FORWARD, the Fragile X Registry and Database, is the largest resource of clinical and demographic data of the Fragile X syndrome (FXS) population in the United States. FORWARD was created to improve the care and quality of life for those living with FXS. By collecting and monitoring changing data, researchers and healthcare professionals can better understand the experiences of individuals with FXS and their families. Information collected from families like yours will be used to develop best practice guidelines for the care of individuals with FXS around the world.
