Protagenic Therapeutics, Inc.: Protagenic Therapeutics Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results

  • Transitioned from Pre-Clinical to Clinical Stage company in FY 2023
  • Phase 1/2a trial, designed to assess both healthy volunteers and patients diagnosed with Treatment-Resistant Depression, PTSD or Generalized Anxiety Disorder, progressing through Phase 1 portion
  • Plans to enroll final two out of five cohorts into the single dose portion of the Phase 1 trial within the next month

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 1, 2024 / Protagenic Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:PTIX), a leader in biopharmaceutical innovation, today provided a corporate update and reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2023.

"In 2023, Protagenic Therapeutics achieved a significant milestone as we began enrolling patients for our neuropeptide drug candidate, PT00114," said Dr. Garo Armen, Executive Chairman. "Our primary focus lies in advancing this drug candidate, designed to address the substantial unmet needs across a spectrum of stress-related neuropsychiatric disorders, including Treatment-Resistant Depression, PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Addiction withdrawal."

2023 Highlights about PT00114

First Clinical Trial: PT00114, the company's synthetic version of the stress-regulating peptide TCAP, began the single ascending dose (S.A,D,) portion of a Phase 1 clinical trial. Notably, PT00114 has shown excellent tolerability with no adverse safety findings during these ongoing Phase 1 studies. With promising preclinical efficacy in anxiety, depression, PTSD, and addiction models, PT00114 is moving forward in clinical evaluation, representing a key step toward transformative therapies.

Safety Validation: Building on the low dose safety validation announced February 13th, as announced on March 27th, PT00114 has now demonstrated safety at a medium dose of 500 micrograms administered subcutaneously in the third of five planned cohorts of subjects in the single dose portion of the Phase I trial. No adverse reactions were observed among subjects, consistent with the two lower dose cohorts (125 micrograms and 250 micrograms), with no reported injection site reactions or tolerability issues in the week following dosing. Based on preclinical pharmacology, PT00114 is expected to be administered once weekly via subcutaneous injection.

Clinical Protocol Progress: This marks progress in the ongoing Phase 1/2a trial, designed to assess both healthy volunteers and patients diagnosed with Treatment-Resistant Depression, PTSD, or Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The company plans to enroll the final two cohorts into the single dose portion of the Phase 1 trial within the next month.

Comprehensive Approach: In addition to monitoring disease status, the trial incorporates biomarker assessments, including circulating cortisol levels, to measure initial treatment response. Dr. Maurizio Fava, Psychiatrist-in-Chief at Massachusetts General Hospital, serves as the Principal Investigator in Protagenic's Phase 1/2a clinical trial with a basket design.

Strategic Collaboration: Axiom Real-Time Metrics, a CRO/Data Analytics firm, manages the clinical program.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Our financial results reflect an increase in research & development spending to pursue our primary objective of developing and commercializing PT00114 during FY 2023, particularly during the fourth quarter. In the fourth quarter of 2023, we spent $1.0 million on R&D, an increase of 301% over our $258,000 R&D spend in the fourth quarter of 2022. This significant increase in R&D expenditures was entirely due to the clinical trial that is now in progress for PT00114, which commenced just as Q4 was starting. Our G&A spend for the fourth quarter of 2023 was just $201,000, down 50% from our G&A spend in the comparable quarter a year ago. Our net loss for Q4 was $1.2 million, compared to a net loss of $656,000 in the year-ago quarter.

For the full year 2023, we spent $3.3 million on R&D, up 109% from the $1.6 million we spent on R&D for the full year 2022. Our full-year G&A of $1.2 million was, similar to the quarter, down almost 40% from the amount spent in the year-ago period.

For full year net income, we lost $4.5 million, which is 27% more loss than we had in 2022, driven primarily by our higher R&D spend because of our clinical trial activities.

For cash, we ended the year with $4.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, down from the $8.0 million we had as of Dec 31, 2022. We believe that our current cash reserves are sufficient to fund all of our Phase I clinical trial.
