XenoPort announce inclusion of Horizant in new treatment guidelines

XenoPort announced the inclusion of gabapentin enacarbil, the active ingredient in Horizant Extended-Release Tablets, as a first-line therapy in new treatment guidelines created by the Task Force of the International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group. The manuscript, published in the current issue of Sleep Medicine, provides information for physicians determining treatment choices for restless legs syndrome, or Willis-Ekbom Disease, based on the long-term benefits and risks of each major class of medications. Horizant is the only non-dopamine agonist and the only alpha-2-delta ligand approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of moderate-to-severe primary restless legs syndrome in adults.
