LONDON, Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GW Pharmaceuticals plc (GWPH) (GWP.L) (GW, the Company or the Group), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics from its proprietary cannabinoid product platform, announced financial results for the third quarter ended 30 June 2016.

“We have now reported two positive Phase 3 trials for Epidiolex and are on track for an NDA filing that includes both the Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome indications. We believe that these Phase 3 data show that Epidiolex has the potential to provide a robust and clinically meaningful reduction in seizures in these highly treatment-resistant populations together with an acceptable safety and tolerability profile,” stated Justin Gover, GW’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our recent successful financing has provided GW with the necessary capital to move forward with confidence in preparing to execute a highly successful launch.”
