TNXP Announces First Phase 3 Patient Enrollment
As mentioned above, TNXP is having an overwhelmingly strong time in the market, at the moment, after announcing that it had enrolled its first patient into the Phase 3 HONOR study. The study is focusing on TNX-102 SL 5.6 mg for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD. In a statement, Dr. Seth Lederman, President and CEO at TNXP, had the following to offer with regard to the news:
“Enrolling the first patient in the HONOR study is an important event not only to Tonix, but potentially to millions who suffer worldwide from both civilian and military-related PTSD… The HONOR study is designed to confirm the clinical benefit of TNX-102 SL to improve PTSD symptoms across several measures as demonstrated in our Phase 2 AtEase study in military-related PTSD.”
