(Boston,  June 2017) – Boston Strategic Partners supported SAGE Therapeutics in the creation of an article recently published in The Lancet online. The article titled “Brexanolone (SAGE-547 injection) in post-partum depression: a randomised controlled trial” was a Phase 2, double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled study of brexanolone (USAN:  formerly SAGE-547 injection) in women with severe postpartum depression (PPD). Post-partum depression is a serious mood disorder in women and the most common medical complication of childbearing. The study found that treatment with brexanolone resulted in significant and clinically meaningful reductions in depression as measured by the 17-item Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D).
