Stocks in this article: TNXP

NEW YORK, April 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:TNXP) today announced the appointment of Donald J. Kellerman, Pharm.D. to the position of Senior Vice President, Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs. Dr. Kellerman will be responsible for overseeing strategy and execution of Tonix's clinical programs.

"We welcome Don Kellerman to Tonix's executive management team as we bring our headache program into the clinic later this year," said Seth Lederman, MD, president and CEO of Tonix. "His recent and successful experience shepherding a novel formulation of a decades-old agent for migraine through a registration program and a New Drug Application (NDA) submission is reflective of our business approach and will be of great value to Tonix. Our lead program, TNX-102 SL for the management of fibromyalgia, is currently being studied in the BESTFIT trial. We are also developing TNX-102 SL for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. Finally, Tonix is developing TNX-201 for episodic tension-type headache. TNX-201 is a single isomer of isometheptene, which has an extensive history of use in headache in the U.S.," added Dr. Lederman. "Don's experience is uniquely suited to our model."

Dr. Kellerman brings more than 30 years of experience in the development of prescription pharmaceuticals to the Tonix team, spanning several therapeutic areas including central nervous system, respiratory, allergy, ophthalmology and cardiovascular. From 2008 to 2013, Dr. Kellerman served as Senior Vice President, Clinical Development and Medical Affairs at MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (acquired by Allergan, Inc.), where he managed the development of MAP0004 for the treatment of migraine. Prior to joining MAP Pharmaceuticals, Dr. Kellerman held positions at Inspire Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (acquired by Merck & Co., Inc.), Glaxo Wellcome plc, Sepracor, Inc. (acquired by Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma Co., Ltd.), Ciba-Geigy Corporation, and E.R. Squibb and Sons, Inc., and served as project leader for multiple products including Flovent®, Advair®, and Xopenex®.
