Tonix Pharmaceuticals Spotlighted In April 7 Issue Of BioCentury

Stocks in this article: TNXP

NEW YORK, April 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:TNXP), a development stage pharmaceutical company, was spotlighted in the April 7, 2014 issue of BioCentury: The Bernstein Report on BioBusiness.

An article titled "Confirming Endpoints" focused on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) March 26 disease area meeting in which testimony from fibromyalgia (FM) patients was solicited. According to the article, patient testimony suggests that there is a need for better medicines because many patients said existing approved or off-label use drugs do not provide adequate relief.

Seth Lederman, M.D., president and CEO of Tonix, was one of several key thought leaders quoted. In the article, Dr. Lederman says, "[An FM drug] will only be an important medication if it decreases pain and treats FM overall."

During the workshop, Dr. Rappaport, director of the FDA's Division of Anesthesia, Analgesia and Addiction Products, discussed the hypothesis that sleep disturbance may be at the center of FM and asked patients whether a product that addresses sleep would be useful. Tonix's TNX-102 SL, given daily at bedtime, is currently being evaluated in the "BESTFIT" trial, a 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, for its ability to improve pain and possibly sleep quality in subjects with FM. Initial results from BESTFIT are expected to become available in the fourth quarter of 2014.

BioCentury: The Bernstein Report on BioBusiness serves a worldwide audience in the biopharma, investment and public policy communities.

About Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp.

Tonix is developing innovative prescription medications to treat fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and episodic tension-type headache, all characterized by inadequate treatment options, dissatisfaction expressed among patients and physicians, and significant expense burden. Tonix leverages the established human safety and pharmacokinetics of known drugs and, through a directed process of repurposing and reformulation, creates novel products to address important problems that often lack validated animal models or defined molecular targets. Tonix is currently enrolling patients into the first anticipated pivotal trial of TNX-102 SL in fibromyalgia, the BESTFIT trial (BEdtime Sublingual TNX-102 SL as Fibromyalgia Intervention Therapy). With TNX-102 SL, Tonix approaches the treatment of people suffering from fibromyalgia and post-traumatic stress disorder by targeting their inability to obtain restorative sleep. TNX-201 is in development for the treatment of episodic tension-type headache. To learn more, please visit www.tonixpharma.com.
