Official Title

An Open-Label Study to Evaluate the Long-Term Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of OV101 in Individuals With Angelman Syndrome

Brief Summary

      This open-label study (OV101-18-002) will evaluate the long-term (52 weeks) safety of OV101
      in subjects with AS and provide additional OV101 treatment to those subjects who completed
      Study OV101-15-001 (NCT02996305). Subjects with AS who completed the pharmacokinetic Study
      OV101-16-001 (NCT03109756) will also be permitted to participate, provided they meet all
      entry criteria.

Detailed Description

      This will be an open-label, long-term safety study for evaluation of further treatment with
      OV101 in subjects with AS who have completed previous Ovid studies (OV101-15-001 or
      OV101-16-001). There will be no placebo treatment. As this study will enroll subjects who
      have completed previous AS studies for different periods of time before entering this study,
      subjects will be required to complete screening and baseline visits before receiving OV101
      under this protocol.The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term
      efficacy of OV101 treatment assessed by changes in behavior, sleep, and functioning in
      individuals with AS.

          2. Is male or female and 13 to 49 years old (inclusive) at the time of inclusion in the
             OV101-15-001 or OV101-16-001 study.

          3. Has a previous diagnosis of AS with molecular confirmation from the OV101-15-001 or
             OV101-16-001 study.

          4. Has an LAR/caregiver capable of providing informed consent and able to attend all
             scheduled study visits, oversee the administration of study drug, and provide feedback
             regarding the subject's symptoms and performance as described in the protocol.

          5. Provides assent to the protocol (to the extent possible and in accordance with local
             institutional review board (IRB) and regulatory requirements) and has an LAR/caregiver
             who will provide written informed consent. Subjects providing assent must do so at the
             same visit as LAR/caregiver written informed consent is provided.

          6. Can swallow study drug capsules or ingest the contents of study drug capsules after
             sprinkling the capsule contents onto 1 spoon of applesauce or low-fat yogurt.

          7. Is currently receiving a stable dose of concomitant medications such as anti-epileptic
             medication, gabapentin, clonidine, trazadone, melatonin, and special diets for at
             least 4 weeks prior to Baseline.

          8. Agrees to remain sexually abstinent from the first day of screening until 30 days
             after the last dose of study treatment.

          9. Has LAR/caregiver(s) who agree not to post any of the subject's personal medical data
             or information related to the study on any website or social media site (eg, Facebook,
             Instagram, Twitter) until notified that the study is completed.

        Exclusion Criteria:

        Subjects meeting any of the following criteria will be excluded from the study:

          1. Discontinued from the OV101-15-001 or OV101-16-001 study due to safety reasons
             causally related to OV101.

          2. Has a concomitant disease (eg, gastrointestinal, renal, hepatic, endocrine,
             respiratory, or cardiovascular system disease) or condition or any clinically
             significant finding at Screening that could interfere with the conduct of the study or
             that would pose an unacceptable risk to the subject in this study.

          3. Has poorly controlled seizures defined as > 3 seizures lasting < 3 minutes per week or
             > 1 seizure episode lasting more than 3 minutes per week or as per medical monitor

          4. Has clinically significant clinical laboratory abnormalities or vital signs at the
             time of screening (eg, alanine aminotransferase or aspartate aminotransferase > 2.5 ×
             upper limit of normal; total bilirubin or creatinine > 1.5 × upper limit of normal).
             Retesting of clinical laboratory parameters may be allowed after consultation with the
             medical monitor or designee.

          5. Current use of benzodiazepines, zolpidem, zaleplon, zopiclone, eszopiclone,
