CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SAGE Therapeutics (NASDAQ: SAGE), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel medicines to treat life-threatening, rare central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today provided business updates and reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

"This has been a great year for SAGE in several areas," stated Jeff Jonas, M.D., chief executive officer at SAGE. "We’ve made great progress with our lead product candidate, SAGE-547, having reported preliminary results from the first four patients with super-refractory status epilepticus in our ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trial. The data, to date, demonstrated both clinically relevant activity and safety with SAGE-547. We completed a successful initial public offering, and we also made significant progress in several of our pipeline programs. With the proceeds from the IPO, we are in a strong position to invest in new SAGE-547 trials and complete the work necessary to advance two additional product candidates towards the clinic. We look forward to reporting further progress this year."
