“The fourth quarter of 2019 capped off a year of strong execution by Zynerba,” Armando Anido, Zynerba's chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

“With a number of shots-on-goal in our clinical pipeline, each with near term milestones, our outlook is promising for the remainder of 2020 and beyond. We are positioned for major news events throughout this year and next, including the topline results from our pivotal CONNECT-FX trial of Zygel in patients with Fragile X syndrome which are expected late next quarter.”

Among the important clinical milestones Zynerba has achieved of late include the completion of enrollment complete in a Pivotal FXS Trial examining the safety and effectiveness of Zygel in helping with usual behavioral symptoms of FSX. The company said it expects to reveal topline results in the second quarter.  

Zynerba said it has also reached a Phase 2 BRIGHT trial researching Zygel's safety and efficacy in treating pediatric and adolescent patients with autism spectrum disorder.
