NEW YORK, May 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:TNXP) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

"Yesterday, we announced the completion of enrollment in the BESTFIT trial of TNX-102 SL in fibromyalgia, which is a potential pivotal trial for our lead program. We are on track to report top-line results of this 12-week study in the fourth quarter of this year," said Seth Lederman, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Tonix. "In January, we raised $43.5 M in an offering of common stock which enables us to accelerate the clinical development of our pipeline. We are planning a Phase 2 trial of TNX-102 SL in post-traumatic stress disorder, to begin next quarter, as well as a clinical pharmacology study of TNX-201, a single isomer of an unapproved marketed product for tension headache, to be conducted in the fourth quarter."

First Quarter Financial Results

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, Tonix reported a net loss of $5.2 million, or $0.59 per share, as compared to a net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.93 per share, for the first quarter of 2013. At March 31, 2014, Tonix's cash totaled $49.5 million as compared to $8.2 million at December 31, 2013.

About Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp.

Tonix develops innovative prescription medicines for common and complex disorders of the central nervous system. Fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and episodic tension-type headache are characterized by inadequate treatment options, dissatisfaction expressed among patients and physicians, and significant expense burden. Tonix is currently conducting the first anticipated pivotal trial of TNX-102 SL in fibromyalgia, the BESTFIT trial (BEdtime Sublingual TNX-102 SL as Fibromyalgia Intervention Therapy). Tonix expects to begin clinical development of TNX-102 SL in PTSD in the third quarter of 2014. With TNX-102 SL, Tonix approaches the treatment of people suffering from fibromyalgia and PTSD by targeting their inability to obtain restorative sleep. TNX-201 is in development for episodic tension-type headache, and Tonix expects to begin clinical studies of TNX-201 in the fourth quarter of 2014. To learn more, please visit www.tonixpharma.com .
