The reason that the CHMP determined that eszoplicone should not be granted new active substance status was because Sepracor failed to prove relevant and clinically meaningful differences between eszopiclone and the racemate of which it was the active enantiomer, zopiclone in an adequate planned clinical trial with direct head to head comparison.
