SAN DIEGO, Nov. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evoke Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq:EVOK), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on treatments for gastrointestinal (GI) diseases, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013. Dave Gonyer, R.Ph., President and CEO, stated, "With the net proceeds of our initial public offering, we are well capitalized to move forward with the planned Phase 3 trial for EVK-001, a metoclopramide nasal spray for the relief of symptoms associated with acute and recurrent gastroparesis in women with diabetes mellitus. Since gastroparesis is a disease that blocks or slows the movement of contents of the stomach to the small intestine and often characterized by nausea and vomiting, oral drug administration can be compromised. We believe our novel intranasal delivery formulation will address a significant unmet market need for patients with the symptoms of gastroparesis. By offering a product that can bypass the stomach and directly enter the systemic circulation, EVK-001 potentially allows a more predictable means of delivering the drug."
