Axsome Therapeutics Highlights Data on Solriamfetol Demonstrating Improvement in Cognitive Function in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or Narcolepsy at SLEEP 2024

NEW YORK, May 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXSM), a biopharmaceutical company developing and delivering novel therapies for the management of central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced five presentations, including two featured oral plenary presentations, on solriamfetol at SLEEP 2024, the 38th annual meeting of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and the Sleep Research Society (SRS), being held June 1-5, 2024, in Houston, Texas.

“Cognitive functioning is an underappreciated facet of sleep disorders. Often overshadowed by clinically defining symptoms such as EDS, impaired cognition involves significant burden to patient lives. The SHARP study of solriamfetol showed improved cognitive functioning in participants with impaired cognition associated with OSA and EDS,” said Hans Van Dongen, PhD, Professor at Washington State University and presenting author of the SHARP study plenary lecture. “In addition, solriamfetol demonstrated improvements across measures of executive function, memory, and processing speed.”
