Ritter Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: RTTR) shares are up 15% after the company said that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed to an end of phase 2 meeting. The meeting is expected to take place in the third quarter of 2017 to discuss the results of Ritter’s recently completed phase 2b/3 trial, which demonstrated numerous positive topline results. A full analysis of the data is currently underway. The company also plans to discuss phase 3 plans in preparation of a New Drug Application (NDA) submission of RP-G28 for the treatment of lactose intolerance. “Based on the topline results of the study, I believe this instrument performed well in defining and capturing clinical benefits to patients with lactose intolerance. I am encouraged to see consistency in the data outcome measures and believe that the topline results provide data supporting a treatment benefit of this investigational compound,” Dr. William Chey, director of the GI Physiology Laboratory at University of Michigan, stated with regard to the study.
