Lyon, France – 14 February – 6pm CEST – Theranexus, a biopharmaceutical company innovating in the treatment of rare neurological diseases, today announces publication of its cash position as at 31 December 2023 and presents an update on its programs.

Theranexus CEO, Mathieu Charvériat, comments: " The results of our Phase I/II clinical trial after 12 months of treatment[1] demonstrate the strong therapeutic potential of Batten-1, our drug candidate in Batten disease. These results will enable us to close this trial very soon, after 18 months of treatment, and we will make together with BBDF every effort to continue offering this treatment to trial patients in view of its favorable risk-benefit profile. We are currently exploring every option – financing or a partnership – to ensure we have the necessary resources to implement our pivotal Phase III trial in Europe and the United States. At the same time, we will shortly be announcing the start of preclinical development of a new drug candidate."

As a reminder, the results after 6[2]and 12 months of treatment were the subject of communications, and the FDA[3] and the EMA[4] have also validated the design of the upcoming phase 3 study.

On 31 December 2023, total available funds stood at €4.9 M (compared with €6.0M on 30 September 2023), reflecting a careful and rigorous approach to expenditure control. Aside from the upcoming launch of the Phase III trial to evaluate Batten-1, which is subject to availability of additional resources (in the form of a capital raise or an industrial partnership), the rate of expenditure will fall significantly from Q2 2024 onwards due to completion of Phase I/II underway. The company has sufficient cash to cover its requirements until February 2025.
