These include the announcement of results of the BESTFIT trial of TNX-102 SL in fibromyalgia in the second half, the advancement of TNX-102 SL into a Phase 2 trial in post-traumatic stress disorder in the third quarter, and the start of clinical work with TNX-201 for tension-type headache in the fourth quarter," said Dr. Lederman. About Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. Tonix is developing innovative prescription medications to treat fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and tension 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). 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 the treatment of tension-type headache. To learn more, please visit www.tonixpharma.com .
