Vistagen (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, today announced the closing of its acquisition of Pherin Pharmaceuticals Inc., a privately held drug development company focused on neuropsychiatric and neuroendocrine conditions. Vistagen now owns all intellectual property rights to its two most advanced drug candidates as well as three additional drug candidates in earlier stages of development. “This acquisition is another important step in our plan to develop and commercialize PH94B and PH10 as innovative treatments for millions of individuals struggling with anxiety and depression disorders,” said Shawn Singh, chief executive officer of Vistagen. “By acquiring Pherin, we are eliminating all potential royalty payment obligations related to PH94B and PH10, as well as the three additional earlier stage pherines acquired in the transaction. This acquisition significantly improves the potential future commercial profile of each drug candidate.”

Vistagen’s product candidates belong to a new class of drugs known as pherines, which are designed with a novel rapid-onset mechanism of action that activates chemosensory neurons in the nasal passages and can impact key neural circuits without systemic uptake or direct activity on CNS neurons in the brain. Vistagen is passionate about transforming mental health care and redefining what is possible in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
