Vistagen Therapeutics (NASDAQ: VTGN), a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company aiming to transform the treatment landscape for individuals living with anxiety, depression and other central nervous system (“CNS”) disorders, announced that it will be sharing the results of its phase 3 open-label study of fasedienol (“PH94B”) nasal spray for the treatment of adults with social anxiety disorder (“SAD”). According to the announcement, the results will be reported in a poster presentation at the American Society for Clinical Psychopharmacology (“ASCP”) 2023 annual meeting, which runs from May 30–June 2, 2023. The poster session is slated to begin today at 11:15 a.m. ET. The company reported that its proprietary nasal spray, fasedienol (PH94B), is “a first-in-class, rapid-onset investigational pherine nasal spray with a novel proposed mechanism of action that regulates the olfactory-amygdala neural circuits of fear and anxiety and attenuates the tone of the sympathetic autonomic nervous system, without systemic distribution, potentiation of GABA-A receptors or direct activity on neurons in the brain.” The product is designed for intranasal use in low microgram doses, which is a fundamentally different approach than currently approved anti-anxiety medications, including all antidepressants and benzodiazepines.

About Vistagen Therapeutics Inc.
Vistagen is a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company aiming to transform the treatment landscape for individuals living with anxiety, depression and other CNS disorders. The company is advancing therapeutics with the potential to be faster acting, and with fewer side effects and safety concerns than those that are currently available for treatment of anxiety, depression and CNS disorders. Vistagen’s pipeline includes six clinical-stage product candidates, including five investigational agents belonging to a new class of drugs known as pherines, in addition to AV-101, an oral antagonist of the glycine site of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (“NMDAR”). Pherines, which are administered as nasal sprays, are designed with an innovative rapid-onset mechanism of action that activates chemosensory neurons in the nasal passages and can selectively and beneficially impact key neural circuits in the brain without requiring systemic uptake or direct activity on CNS neurons. Vistagen’s AV-101 inhibits activity of the ion channel of the NMDAR but does not block it. Vistagen is passionate about transforming mental health care and redefining what is possible in the treatment of anxiety, depression and several other CNS disorders.
