ROCKVILLE, Md., May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Vanda) (NASDAQ: VNDA), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of products for central nervous system disorders, today announced financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.
"We are very excited about the significant progress we have made to date in 2011," said Mihael H. Polymeropoulos, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our first product, Fanapt®, which is marketed in the U.S. for the treatment of schizophrenia has now entered a Phase I study to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetic profiles of two different long-acting formulations in patients with schizophrenia. In addition, we have expanded the tasimelteon clinical program with a Phase IIb/III Study in Major Depression that will begin in the second half of 2011."
FIRST QUARTER 2011 REPORTED RESULTSTotal revenues for the first quarter of 2011 were $7.5 million, compared to $12.4 million for the same period in 2010. First quarter 2011 revenues included $0.9 million related to Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis as compared to $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2010. The higher first quarter 2010 royalty revenue was the result of initial wholesaler stocking at launch. First quarter 2010 revenues also included one-time product sales to Novartis of $3.7 million. Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2011 were $7.5 million, compared to $6.3 million for the first quarter of 2010. The primary driver of the higher expenses in the first quarter of 2011 was the ongoing support of the tasimelteon N24HSWD clinical studies.
Net income was $0.1 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $0.5 million for the first quarter of 2010. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2011 were $0.00, compared to $0.02 per share for the first quarter of 2010.

Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, reached 25,000 in the first quarter of 2011.
Novartis initiated a clinical study for the once a month injectable depot formulation of Fanapt® in April 2011. This is a Phase I study that will evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetic profiles of two different long-acting formulations of Fanapt® in patients with schizophrenia. A long-acting injectable formulation could offer a potential new option for patients with schizophrenia who might benefit from less frequent dosing compared to an oral medication.
Vanda expects to file for European regulatory approval of oral Fanapt® in the second half of 2011. This continues the effort to expand the availability of Fanapt® to markets outside the U.S. and Canada.
On March 31, 2011, Vanda announced plans to evaluate tasimelteon in Major Depressive Disorder. There is considerable evidence that suggests circadian rhythm disturbances are important in the pathophysiology of mood disorders. Treatment with tasimelteon would represent a novel and differentiated approach to assisting the millions of patients who suffer from the symptoms of major depression. A Phase IIb/III clinical trial will examine safety and efficacy of tasimelteon versus placebo and is expected to begin during the second half of 2011. The study will include an 8-week treatment period and an optional open-label extension.
Enrollment is ongoing in tasimelteon studies VP-VEC-162-3201 (efficacy) and VP-VEC-162-3202 (safety) in the treatment of N24HSWD in totally blind individuals. Top line efficacy results are expected in mid 2012 and an NDA submission is planned for the first half of 2013.
On March 8, 2011, tasimelteon was granted orphan drug designation by the European Commission (EC) for the treatment of N24HSWD in totally blind individuals. Orphan designation for a medicinal product by the EC provides benefits that can take a variety of forms including tax incentives, protocol assistance, eligibility for grants and initiatives supporting research and development related to this orphan indication, reduction of marketing application fees and annual fees for qualifying companies, and potential marketing exclusivity for up to 10 years in the European Union.
