TinyGemsBreaks – Vistagen Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: VTGN) Releases FY 2024 Financial Report, Corporate Update

Vistagen Therapeutics (NASDAQ: VTGN), a neuroscience-focused biopharmaceutical company dedicated to pursuing a pioneering approach to the development of groundbreaking therapies for psychiatric and neurological disorders based on nose-to-brain neurocircuitry, is reporting financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2024; the report also included a corporate update. Highlights of the report included that Vistagen’s registration-directed fasedienol PALISADE phase 3 program for the acute treatment of social anxiety disorder is progressing on track and that its PALISADE-3 phase 3 trial has recently been initiated with plans for PALISADE-4 phase 3 trial initiation in the second half of 2024. Financial numbers reported included research and development expenses totaling $20 million and general and administrative expenses reaching $14.1 million, with a net loss for the year of $29.4 million, down from $59.2 million for FY 2023. The report also showed cash and cash equivalents of $119.2 million as of March 31, 2024, with 27,029,731 shares of common stock issued and 3,577,240 prefunded warrants outstanding as of June 10, 2024. “Vistagen’s fiscal 2024 proved to be a year full of remarkable accomplishments,” said Vistagen Therapeutics CEO Shawn Singh in the press release. “Most notably, with our PALISADE-2 trial of fasedienol, we became the first company to report positive results of a phase 3 trial for the acute treatment of social anxiety disorder, a mental-health disorder affecting the lives of over 30 million adults in the U.S for which there is no FDA-approved acute treatment option. In addition, we recently initiated our PALISADE-3 phase 3 trial, which, if successful, has the potential to complement PALISADE-2 in support of a fasedienol U.S. New Drug Application submission. Our primary focus is on the high-quality execution of our registration-directed PALISADE phase 3 program for fasedienol in social anxiety disorder, as well as the further progression of our nonsystemic, neurocircuitry-focused pherine development programs involving itruvone for major depressive disorder and hormone-free PH80 for menopausal hot flashes. We are well-positioned on a path toward achieving multiple potential value-creating catalysts during the year ahead as we pursue our mission to develop and commercialize differentiated neuroscience therapies to improve patients’ lives worldwide.”
