FREMONT, Calif., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zosano Pharma Corporation (NASDAQ:ZSAN), a CNS-focused company with a lead product, M207, that recently established a differentiated safety and efficacy profile in a pivotal trial as an acute treatment for migraine, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. In addition, John P. Walker, Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors, has been named Interim Chief Executive Officer to replace Konstantinos Alataris who has resigned as CEO and director of the company. Georgia Erbez, our Chief Business Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, has assumed full responsibility for both functions. “The first quarter saw our lead product candidate meet both co-primary endpoints in ZOTRIP, our pivotal efficacy study of M207 as an acute treatment for migraine. In addition, the company completed a follow-on offering that resulted in $29.3 million in gross proceeds earmarked for advancing M207 towards FDA approval. These two important accomplishments are a result of the commitment and capabilities of Zosano’s management team and gives me great confidence in our ability to continue to meet the strategic milestones established by the company.” “The pivotal study results importantly validate our technology platform, and, if approved by the FDA, point to M207’s positioning as an acute treatment for migraine sufferers that is differentiated from what is currently available.  I look forward to working with the team at Zosano and to bringing this exciting new drug to market,” commented John P. Walker, Interim Chief Executive Officer. "On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank Konstantinos Alataris for his efforts and commitment to the company over the past two years. We wish him well in his future endeavors,” added Walker. In February, the Company announced statistically significant results from the ZOTRIP trial, which demonstrated that the 3.8mg dose of M207 met both co-primary endpoints, achieving pain freedom and most bothersome symptom freedom at 2 hours. The 3.8mg dose achieved a p value of <0.05  in the secondary endpoints of pain freedom at 45 minutes and 1 hour, and showed durability of effect on pain freedom to 24 and 48 hours. These results demonstrated that M207 not only provided fast onset but also a durability of effect, up to 2 days and hence freedom from recurrence of migraine. Additionally, M207 demonstrated a similar safety profile as other triptans and no Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) were reported in the trial. The FDA has indicated that a single, positive, pivotal efficacy study, in addition to a safety study of M207, will be sufficient to file for approval under a 505(b)(2) pathway. The Company plans to initiate the safety study in the second half of 2017. Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2017 Walker brings to Zosano more than 40 years of experience as a Board Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and interim CEO at life science companies. In these roles, he has been involved with Vitaphore, which was sold to Union Carbide Chemicals and Plastics; Arris/Axys, which was sold to Celera Genomics; Centaur, which was sold to Renovis; Signal Pharmaceuticals, which was sold to Celgene; Kai Pharmaceuticals, which was sold to Amgen; Guava Technologies, which was sold to Millipore; and iPierian, which was sold to Bristol Myers Squibb as well as in the mergers of Novacea and Transcept and of Renovis and Evotec. He is currently serving as Executive Chairman of Vizuri Life Sciences LLC and has been a director on the Boards of other life science companies, including Geron, Evotec and Affymax. In addition, he currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University and Random Acts of Flowers, a non-profit that repurposes flowers for ill patients. He began his early business career at American Hospital Supply Corporation where he became President of the Hospital Company. Migraine is the leading cause of disability among neurological disorders in the United States according to the American Migraine Foundation. Migraine symptoms can include moderate to severe headache pain combined with nausea and vomiting, or abnormal sensitivity to light and sound.  According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraine affects 30 million men, women and children in the United States. Most migraines last between four and 24 hours, but some last as long as three days. According to published studies, 63% of migraine patients experience between one and four migraines per month. According to Decision Resources, prescription drug sales for migraine in the top seven countries were estimated to be $3.3 billion in 2015, and are expected to grow to $4.4 billion in 2020. Triptans, a family of tryptamine-based drugs first sold in the 1990s, account for almost 75% of anti-migraine therapies prescribed at office visits. M207 is our proprietary formulation of zolmitriptan coated onto our patented intracutaneous microneedle patch, which is then applied with our proprietary applicator to ensure uniform and consistent application. In February 2017, the Company announced statistically significant results from the ZOTRIP trial, which demonstrated that the 3.8mg dose of M207 met both co-primary endpoints, achieving pain freedom and most bothersome symptom freedom at 2 hours.  In a Phase 1 trial, M207 demonstrated markedly faster absorption kinetics compared to oral zolmitriptan. The Company presented these results at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Headache Society. Zosano Pharma Corporation is an emerging CNS company focusing on providing rapid symptom relief to patients using known therapeutics and altering their delivery profile using the Company’s proprietary intracutaneous delivery system. The Company’s goal is to make intracutaneous drug delivery a standard of care for delivering drugs requiring fast onset of action. Zosano Pharma has developed its proprietary intracutaneous delivery system to administer proprietary formulations of existing drugs through the skin for the treatment of a variety of indications.  The Company believes that its intracutaneous delivery system offers rapid and consistent drug delivery combined with ease of use. The Company is focused on developing products that deliver established molecules with known safety and efficacy profiles for markets where patients remain underserved by existing therapies. Zosano Pharma anticipates that many of its current and future development programs may enable the Company to utilize a regulatory pathway that would streamline clinical development and accelerate the path towards commercialization.

FREMONT, Calif., March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zosano Pharma Corporation (NASDAQ:ZSAN), an emerging central nervous system company focused on providing symptom relief to patients using the Company's proprietary intracutaneous delivery system, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016. “The past year was an important period of progress for the Company as we initiated and in the fourth quarter completed ZOTRIP, our pivotal efficacy trial in migraine,” commented Konstantinos Alataris, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zosano Pharma. “Subsequent to the fiscal year end, we announced positive results from the ZOTRIP trial, which not only advances our lead migraine program towards FDA approval but also further validates the effectiveness of our technology platform. If approved, M207 could be an important new therapeutic option for migraine patients.” The ZOTRIP trial was designed to be a registration-enabling, pivotal efficacy trial of M207 as an acute treatment for migraine. The study was a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging trial comparing three doses (1.0mg, 1.9mg and 3.8mg) of M207, a novel transdermal therapeutic, for a single migraine attack. A total of 589 subjects were enrolled at 36 sites across the United States. Dosing of ZOTRIP’s first subject was announced in July of 2016. This past November, the Company announced the completion of ZOTRIP’s enrollment. Migraine is the leading cause of disability among neurological disorders in the United States according to the American Migraine Foundation. An estimated 30 million men, women and children in the United States suffer from migraine. Migraine can be extremely disabling and costly, accounting for more than an estimated $20 billion in direct (e.g., doctor visits, medications) and indirect (e.g., missed work, lost productivity) expenses each year in the United States. M207 is our proprietary formulation of zolmitriptan coated onto our patented intracutaneous microneedle patch, which is then applied with our proprietary applicator to ensure uniform and consistent application. In a Phase 1 trial, M207 demonstrated markedly faster absorption kinetics compared to oral zolmitriptan. The Company presented these results at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Headache Society.
