Reports Q2 revenue $925,000, consensus $1.1M. "We made substantial business and clinical progress in the second quarter," said Norbert Riedel, Ph.D., president and CEO at Aptinyx. "The positive results on both primary and secondary endpoints in our Phase 2 study of NYX-2925 in fibromyalgia have afforded us remarkable understanding of the activity of this compound. Those results demonstrate conclusively that NYX-2925 is not only present in the brain, but also that it has positive activity on brain biomarkers known to be associated with the processing of centralized pain. Moreover, both the fibromyalgia study and the results in patients with advanced diabetic peripheral neuropathy provide evidence that this activity of NYX-2925 can result in improvement of pain and other patient-reported symptoms in these disorders. We will seek to further validate these effects on symptom alleviation in our follow-up Phase 2 studies in both fibromyalgia and DPN, to begin in the coming months. Along with our first-in-patient studies of NYX-783 in PTSD, currently enrolling, and of NYX-458 in cognitive impairment in Parkinson's disease, to kick off later this year, we will have four Phase 2 studies ongoing by the end of 2019 that will offer key development insights across our pipeline over the next 12 to 24 months."
