DEVON, Pa., March 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZYNE), the leader in innovative pharmaceutically-produced transdermal cannabinoid therapies for rare and near-rare neuropsychiatric disorders, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021, and provided an overview of recent operational highlights and a pipeline update.

“In 2022, we look to build on last year’s progress as we continue to enroll patients in our confirmatory pivotal Phase 3 trial in Fragile X syndrome, initiate a Phase 3 program in autism spectrum disorder and report topline results in our Phase 2 trial in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome,” said Armando Anido, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zynerba. “We are committed to achieving our goal of bringing the first pharmaceutical product indicated for the treatment of behavioral symptoms of Fragile X syndrome to market, as well as advancing Zygel in other rare and near rare neuropsychiatric indications.”

Operational Highlights and Pipeline Update

Zygel in Fragile X Syndrome (FXS)

  • In February 2022, the European Commission granted orphan drug designation to cannabidiol, the active ingredient in Zygel, for the treatment of FXS. As previously announced, the Company believes, based on the scientific advice of the European Medicines Agency, that the successful completion of the current development program for Zygel in FXS will satisfy the requirements of a marketing authorization application in the European Union.
  • The Company continues to expect topline results from RECONNECT, a confirmatory pivotal Phase 3 trial of Zygel in patients with FXS, in the second half of 2023. The Company believes that the results from RECONNECT, if positive, will be sufficient to support the submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) for Zygel in patients with FXS.

Zygel in 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome (22q)

  • In February 2022, the Company announced completion of enrollment for the 14-week open-label Phase 2 INSPIRE trial in children and adolescents with genetically confirmed 22q. The Company continues to expect topline data from INSPIRE mid-year 2022. A total of 20 patients have been enrolled in the INSPIRE trial.
  • The Company plans to move forward in 22q as an orphan indication pending results from the INSPIRE trial, and subsequent discussion with the FDA on the regulatory path forward. The Company has previously received orphan drug designation for Zygel in 22q from the FDA.

Zygel in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

  • The Company expects to initiate the first of two Phase 3 trials in patients with ASD in the second half of 2022. The Company is finalizing the Phase 3 study protocol and will submit an Investigational New Drug application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prior to commencing the pivotal program.
  • As previously announced, earlier discussions with the FDA included agreement on utilizing the irritability subscale of the Aberrant Behavior Checklist – Community (ABC-C) as the primary endpoint to support an indication for the treatment of irritability in ASD. This is the same primary endpoint utilized in the pivotal trials for the two existing FDA approved treatments for ASD.

Corporate

  • In February 2022, Albert P. Parker was appointed Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary. Mr. Parker is an accomplished legal and business executive with over 25 years of pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare experience. He assumed the duties of Suzanne Hanlon, who retired from her position at the end of February 2022.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Financial Results
Research and development expenses were $5.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, including stock-based compensation of $0.4 million. General and administrative expenses were $3.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, including stock-based compensation expense of $0.7 million. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $8.8 million, with basic and diluted loss per share of $(0.22).

Research and development expenses were $21.4 million for full year 2021, including stock-based compensation of $2.8 million. General and administrative expenses were $15.3 million for full year 2021, including stock-based compensation of $3.0 million. The net loss for the full year 2021 was $37.3 million, with basic and diluted net loss per share of $(0.95).

Financial Outlook
As of December 31, 2021, cash and cash equivalents were $67.8 million, compared to $59.2 million as of December 31, 2020. Management believes that the Company’s cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2021 are sufficient to fund operations and capital requirements into the second half of 2023.

About Zygel
Zygel is the first and only pharmaceutically-manufactured cannabidiol formulated as a patent-protected permeation-enhanced clear gel, designed to provide controlled drug delivery into the bloodstream transdermally (i.e. through the skin). Recent studies suggest that cannabidiol may modulate the endocannabinoid system and improve certain behavioral symptoms associated with neuropsychiatric conditions. Zygel is an investigational drug product in development for the potential treatment of behavioral symptoms associated with Fragile X syndrome (FXS), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q). Zygel has been granted orphan drug designation by the FDA and the European Commission in the treatment of FXS and by the FDA for the treatment of 22q. Additionally, Zygel has been designated a Fast Track development program for treatment of behavioral symptoms of FXS.
