Vistagen (NASDAQ: VTGN), a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company aiming to transform the treatment landscape for individuals living with anxiety, depression and other central nervous system (“CNS”) disorders, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) has granted a U.S. patent for Vistagen’s PH80 nasal spray for the treatment of migraine. According to the announcement, the newly issued patent will be in effect until at least 2040. An investigational pherine nasal spray, PH80 is designed with a potential rapid-onset mechanism of action that is fundamentally differentiated from all currently approved treatments for migraine. PH80 does not require systemic exposure to produce an effect, providing a significant potential therapeutic advantage over traditional pharmaceuticals targeted at the CNS. PH80 nasal spray initiates neural impulses in the olfactory bulb transmitted by pathways that rapidly affect brain function, which include the amygdala and hypothalamus that have been linked to the pathology of migraine.
