Newron is developing evenamide as an add-on therapy for poorly managed and treatment-resistant schizophrenia (TRS). In April/May 2024, Newron shared positive results from a Phase II/III trial (study 008A) in patients with schizophrenia who are taking antipsychotics but not classified as having TRS (primary and key secondary endpoints met). In January 2024, positive final results (12-month data for the full patient cohort) were announced for a Phase II trial (study 014/015) in TRS patients. Over 70% of patients experienced a clinically meaningful reduction in disease severity and 25% achieved remission. With these encouraging results in hand, Newron now intends to begin a potentially pivotal, multinational Phase III schizophrenia programme (expected to start in 2024). In its FY23 results, Newron recorded total revenue of €9.1m (up 48.6% y-o-y) for the period, primarily derived from Xadago-related royalty income.
