Tonix is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, licensing, acquiring and developing therapeutics and diagnostics to treat and prevent human disease and alleviate suffering. Tonix’s portfolio is composed of immunology, rare disease, infectious disease, and central nervous system (CNS) product candidates. Tonix’s immunology portfolio includes biologics to address organ transplant rejection, autoimmunity and cancer, including TNX-15001 which is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting CD40-ligand being developed for the prevention of allograft and xenograft rejection and for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. A Phase 1 study of TNX-1500 is expected to be initiated in the second half of 2022. Tonix’s rare disease portfolio includes TNX-29002 for the treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome. TNX-2900 has been granted Orphan-Drug Designation by the FDA. Tonix’s infectious disease pipeline includes a vaccine in development to prevent smallpox and monkeypox called TNX-8013, next-generation vaccines to prevent COVID-19, and an antiviral to treat COVID-19. Tonix’s lead vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are TNX-1840 and TNX-18504, which are live virus vaccines based on Tonix’s recombinant pox vaccine (RPV) platform. TNX-35005 (sangivamycin, i.v. solution) is a small molecule antiviral drug to treat acute COVID-19 and is in the pre-IND stage of development. TNX-102 SL6, (cyclobenzaprine HCl sublingual tablets), is a small molecule drug being developed to treat Long COVID, a chronic post-acute COVID-19 condition. Tonix expects to initiate a Phase 2 study in Long COVID in the second quarter of 2022. The Company’s CNS portfolio includes both small molecules and biologics to treat pain, neurologic, psychiatric and addiction conditions. Tonix’s lead CNS candidate, TNX-102 SL, is in mid-Phase 3 development for the management of fibromyalgia with a new Phase 3 study launched in the second quarter of 2022. Finally, TNX-13007 is a biologic designed to treat cocaine intoxication that is expected to start a Phase 2 trial in the second quarter of 2022. TNX-1300 has been granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the FDA.

Study Supports Use of TNX102-SL in Long COVID Symptoms.  Tonix presented a large, retrospective study to determine the incidence of symptoms in patients with Long COVID (PASC, or Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19).  The findings showed a significant overlap between symptoms of Long COVID and fibromyalgia, including multi-site pain, fatigue, and insomnia.  It also found significantly higher opioid use in patients that have multi-site pain.  Since TNX-102 SL has been shown to relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia, we believe the study supports the Phase 2 PREVAIL trial of TXN-102 SL in Long COVID.

Retrospective Analysis of Patient Database Identifies Long COVID Symptoms.  Tonix analyzed a large patient database using published criteria to identify Long COVID patients in a network of health care providers.  In the sample of 260,082 COVID patients, 20.1% (n=52,322) had Long COVID symptoms.  Of these 41.5% (n=21,694) had multi-site pain.
