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, has received notification that the European Patent Office (“EPO”) intends to grant its patent application for PH80 nasal spray. According to the announcement, the EPO issued an intention to grant the patent for PH80, one of Vistagen’s five rapid-onset investigational neuroactive pherine therapeutics. PH80 is intended to treat migraines. The announcement noted that the patent will not expire until 2040. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) has already granted a similar U.S. patent for PH80, and the company has applied for similar patents in additional major pharmaceutical markets. A clinical-stage investigational pherine nasal spray designed with a potential rapid-onset mechanism of action, PH80 differs from currently approved treatments for migraine because it does not require systemic exposure to produce a therapeutic effect. The nasal spray causes neural impulses in the olfactory bulb that rapidly impact the function of multiple structures in the brain linked to the pathology of migraine.

About Vistagen Therapeutics Inc.
Vistagen Therapeutics 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 treating anxiety, depression and multiple CNS disorders. Vistagen’s pipeline includes six clinical-stage product candidates, including five investigational agents belonging to a new class of neuroactive 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, unlike some approved therapeutics having significant side effects. Vistagen is passionate about transforming mental health care and redefining what is possible in the treatment of anxiety, depression and several other CNS disorders.
