About VistaGen
VistaGen Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing new generation medicines for multiple CNS diseases and disorders with high unmet need. Each of VistaGen’s CNS pipeline candidates, AV-101, PH10 and PH94B, has potential to provide rapid-onset therapeutic benefits without the psychological side effects, safety concerns or inconvenient clinical administration associated with many current and potential new generation medications for CNS diseases and disorders such as major depressive disorder (MDD), neuropathic pain and social anxiety disorder (SAD). Each drug candidate in VistaGen’s pipeline is either currently in or has completed Phase 2 clinical development in the United States. AV-101, an oral NMDA receptor glycine B antagonist, is in Phase 2 development as an adjunctive treatment of MDD. The FDA has granted Fast Track designation for development of AV-101 as both a potential adjunctive treatment of MDD and as a non-opioid treatment for neuropathic pain. PH10 intranasal, a first-in-class neuroactive steroid with rapid onset effects, is in Phase 2 development for MDD. PH94B intranasal, also a first-in-class neuroactive steroid with rapid onset effects, has completed Phase 2 development and is now being prepared for pivotal Phase 3 clinical development as an on demand (PRN) treatment of SAD.
