Tonix Pharmaceuticals Announces Agreement and Initiation of Enrollment in Phase 2 Trial with the University of Washington to Study TNX-1900 (Potentiated Intranasal Oxytocin) for Social Anxiety Disorder

Press Release

July 17, 2023

Social Anxiety Disorder Affects 15 Million U.S. Adults and is More Common Among Women than Men

Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: TNXP), a biopharmaceutical company, today announced that the first participant has been enrolled in a Phase 2 investigator-initiated, proof-of-concept study of TNX-1900 (potentiated intranasal oxytocin) for enhancing social safety learning in social anxiety disorder (SAD). Tonix entered into an agreement with the University of Washington to examine the potential role of TNX-1900 with Angela Fang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Washington as the principal investigator.

“We are excited to collaborate with the University of Washington and Dr. Fang on the development of TNX-1900 for social anxiety disorder,” said Seth Lederman, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Tonix Pharmaceuticals. “In the past decade, there has been an increase in studies examining oxytocin’s effects on social cognition and behavior in animals and humans due to translational discoveries showing that intranasal oxytocin appears to reach central nervous system targets1. Specifically, evidence suggests that oxytocin may enhance the importance of social cues or have anti-anxiety properties2,3. These studies have shown that intranasal oxytocin may hold therapeutic promise for psychiatric disorders involving social deficits3-5. TNX-1900 is a proprietary formulation of oxytocin that contains magnesium, which Tonix has shown in animal models potentiates the action of oxytocin at oxytocin receptors and potentially improves the consistency of treatment by reducing paradoxical high-dose inhibition.”

Montana State researchers harness artificial intelligence for cancer diagnosis

By Marshall Swearingen, MSU News Service

JUNE 27, 2023

While the linguistic feats of ChatGPT and other chatbots have been capturing headlines, researchers at Montana State University have been steadily advancing another, more ordinary — and potentially life-saving — application of artificial intelligence: helping to diagnose and treat prostate cancer.

By using new computing methods to detect visual patterns in biopsy scans, the scientists and their medical collaborators are developing technology that could one day help doctors more confidently recommend effective treatment.

“What we’ve learned is that three different pathologists could look at the same slide and assess the cancer differently,” said John Sheppard, professor in the Gianforte School of Computing in MSU’s Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering. “Our goal is a computer-assisted process that can make diagnosis more consistent and hopefully more accurate.”

‘Fighting like a Mother': UM Neuroscience Hunts Cure for Young Boy

By Erika Fredrickson, UM News Service

July 19, 2023

Amber Freed was like any mother looking for answers. Her twins – born in 2017 – were still babies when she and her husband noticed Maxwell wasn’t advancing at the same pace as his sister, Riley. The doctors tried to reassure the family, but Freed knew there was something wrong. Soon the doctors did, too.

“I noticed the doctor's tone change from, ‘You’re just a crazy new mom,’ to one of panic,” Freed said.

After some medical tests, the Freeds learned Maxwell has a genetic mutation that causes a spectrum of neurodevelopment disorders that can include epilepsy, developmental delays, movement disorders and features of autism. This genetic mutation was so rare it is only known as SLC6A1, named after the affected gene location.

While SLC6A1 is now listed among the top-10 gene variants associated with autism or epilepsy, at the time there were only 30 kids in the world with the SLC6A1 diagnosis. The doctors told the Freeds to watch and wait. Social services told them, “Go home and give him the best life you can.”

FDA approves first RSV vaccine

May 3, 2023 

By Clary Estes

Drug makers have been racing at a breakneck pace to develop respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccines this year. On May 3, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it has approved Arexvy, the first-ever RSV vaccine for individuals 60 and over.

The FDA’s greenlighting of GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) Arexvy vaccine signals the first company to reach the finish line and successfully get a product to market. 

“Older adults, in particular those with underlying health conditions, such as heart or lung disease or weakened immune systems, are at high risk for severe disease caused by RSV,” said Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. “Today’s approval of the first RSV vaccine is an important public health achievement to prevent a disease which can be life-threatening and reflects the FDA’s continued commitment to facilitating the development of safe and effective vaccines for use in the United States.”

CDC advisory panel backs use of GSK and Pfizer RSV vaccines in adults 60 and older

June 21, 2023

By Annika Kim Constantino

An advisory committee to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday recommended that adults ages 60 and above, after consulting their doctors, receive a single dose of RSV vaccines from Pfizer and GSK.

The panel said seniors should use “shared clinical decision-making,” which involves working with their healthcare provider to decide how much they will benefit from a shot.

Outgoing CDC director Rochelle Walensky will decide whether to finalize the recommendation.

The panel’s decision moves the U.S. one step closer to making jabs against respiratory syncytial virus available to the public this fall, when the disease typically begins to spread at higher levels.

The recommendation also comes weeks after the Food and Drug Administration approved both vaccines, making them the world’s first authorized shots against RSV.

FDA Converts Novel Alzheimer’s Disease

Treatment to Traditional Approval

Action Follows Confirmatory Trial to Verify Clinical Benefit

July 06, 2023

FDA News Release

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration converted Leqembi (lecanemab-irmb), indicated to treat adult patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, to traditional approval following a determination that a confirmatory trial verified clinical benefit. Leqembi is the first amyloid beta-directed antibody to be converted from an accelerated approval to a traditional approval for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The drug works by reducing amyloid plaques that form in the brain, a defining pathophysiological feature of the disease. 

Leqembi was approved in January under the Accelerated Approval pathway. This pathway allows the FDA to approve drugs for serious conditions where there is an unmet medical need, based on clinical data demonstrating the drug’s effect on a surrogate endpoint—in the case of Leqembi, reducing amyloid plaques in the brain—that is reasonably likely to predict a clinical benefit to patients. As a postmarketing requirement of the accelerated approval, the FDA required the applicant to conduct a clinical trial, often referred to as a confirmatory study, to verify the anticipated clinical benefit of Leqembi. Efficacy of Leqembi was evaluated using the results of Study 301 (CLARITY AD), a Phase 3 randomized, controlled clinical trial.

“Today’s action is the first verification that a drug targeting the underlying disease process of Alzheimer’s disease has shown clinical benefit in this devastating disease,” said Teresa Buracchio, acting director of the Office of Neuroscience in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “This confirmatory study verified that it is a safe and effective treatment for patients with Alzheimer’s disease.”
