Acadia Pharmaceuticals announced it has submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) a priority review of the New Drug Application (NDA) for Nuplazid (pimavanserin) for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease psychosis (PDP).

The NDA submission was based on a pivotal Phase 3 -020 Study in which Nuplazid achieved statistically significant reduction in psychosis compared to placebo in patients with PDP with no worsening of motor function. Nuplazid met all primary and secondary endpoints with statistical significance.
