CRANBURY, N.J., May 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Palatin (NYSE American: PTN), a biopharmaceutical company developing first-in-class medicines based on molecules that modulate the activity of the melanocortin peptide receptor system, today announced results for its third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021.

"I am excited with Palatin's evolution and development advancements utilizing our proprietary melanocortin agonists to treat patients with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions," stated Carl Spana, Ph.D., President and CEO of Palatin. "We are hosting a KOL webinar on May 21st to introduce our growing portfolio of melanocortin agonists to treat the harmful effects of inflammation in the eye. On the clinical front, we are targeting to commence a Phase 3 trial of PL9643 in patients with dry eye disease in the second half of calendar year 2021. The emerging profile of PL9643, with its rapid therapeutic onset and excellent tolerability profile, is a potentially distinct advantage over commercially available dry eye therapies. In addition, we are targeting to commence a Phase 2 study with an oral formulation of PL8177 in ulcerative colitis patients in the second half of calendar year 2021."

"I am also pleased with the progress we have made with the Vyleesi program," continued Spana.  "Our quarter ended March 31, 2021 reflected significant increases in gross sales, net sales, prescriptions, and insurance coverage over the prior quarter."
