NEW YORK, March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --Intra-Cellular Therapies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ITCI), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of therapeutics for central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2022 and provided a corporate update.
“The robust growth of CAPLYTA in 2022 marked an extraordinary year for our company. During the year we launched our new bipolar depression indication for CAPLYTA and made considerable progress in advancing our late and early-stage clinical programs,” said Dr. Sharon Mates, Chairman and CEO of Intra-Cellular Therapies. “I am very proud of our accomplishments and the strong foundation we have built. We expect 2023 to be another year of significant growth for CAPLYTA and the company.”
Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights:
- Net product sales of CAPLYTA were $87.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $25.5 million for the same period in 2021, representing a year-over-year increase of 243% and a 22% increase over the third quarter of 2022.
- Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $44.0 million compared to a net loss of $85.7 million for the same period in 2021.
- Cost of product sales were $6.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to $2.5 million for the same period in 2021.
- Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $94.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $79.7 million for the same period in 2021. This increase is primarily due to an increase in commercialization, marketing and advertising costs.
- Research and development (R&D) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2022 were $33.9 million, compared to $29.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. This increase is primarily due to higher lumateperone and non-lumateperone project costs, including the ITI-1284, ITI-214, and ITI-333 programs.

|Expectations (in $ millions)|
|CAPLYTA Net Product Sales||$||430||$||455|
|SG&A expenses (GAAP)||$||420||$||450|
|R&D expenses (GAAP)||$||195||$||220|
- Successfully launched CAPLYTA for the treatment of bipolar depression in adults. CAPLYTA is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved treatment for depressive episodes associated with bipolar I or II disorder (bipolar depression) in adults as monotherapy and as adjunctive therapy with lithium or valproate.
- CAPLYTA prescriptions tripled in 2022, following the launch in bipolar depression, representing 193% total prescription growth in 2022 over 2021. CAPLYTA’s strong uptake continued in the fourth quarter with total prescriptions increasing by 225% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Fourth quarter CAPLYTA total prescriptions increased sequentially by 21% versus the third quarter of 2022 while total prescriptions in the overall oral antipsychotic market remained flat.
- In 2022 we received FDA approval and subsequently launched two new dosage strengths of CAPLYTA, 10.5 mg and 21 mg. These dosage strengths expand the patient population for CAPLYTA by providing dosage recommendations for patients taking strong or moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors and patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment.
- CAPLYTA maintained broad coverage in the Medicare Part D and Medicaid channels, with greater than 98% of lives covered. CAPLYTA has broad Commercial coverage and we expect to expand this coverage to 90% of lives by the end of the first quarter of 2023.
- Our LytaLink patient and prescriber support program continues to be very effective in supporting patient access to CAPLYTA.
- Adjunctive MDD program: Patient enrollment is ongoing in Studies 501 and 502, our global Phase 3 major depressive disorder (MDD) studies evaluating lumateperone 42 mg for the adjunctive treatment of depression in patients who have partially responded to antidepressants. Subject to the results of Studies 501 and 502, we expect to file a supplemental New Drug Application with the FDA for approval of lumateperone as an adjunctive therapy to antidepressants for the treatment of MDD in 2024.
- Mixed Features program: We expect to report topline results from Study 403 in the first quarter of 2023. Study 403 is a global clinical trial evaluating lumateperone 42 mg in patients with MDD and in patients with bipolar depression who exhibit mixed features. The primary endpoint is change from baseline versus placebo on the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating scale (MADRS) total score at week 6, and the key secondary endpoint is the Clinical Global Impression (CGI-S) scale.
- Lumateperone Long Acting Injectable (LAI) formulation: The goal of our program is to develop LAI formulations that are effective, safe and well-tolerated with treatment durations of one month and longer. In 2022 we completed a Phase 1 single ascending dose study with our initial formulation. We have progressed the preclinical development of other formulations and anticipate initiating Phase 1 single ascending dose studies with several formulations in 2023.
Other pipeline programs:
- ITI-1284-ODT-SL program: ITI-1284 is a deuterated form of lumateperone, a new chemical entity formulated as an oral disintegrating tablet for sublingual administration.
- In 2022, we completed a food intake study and a water intake study. In these studies, ITI-1284 was generally safe and well-tolerated. Previously, we completed Phase 1 safety studies in which ITI-1284 was generally safe and well tolerated in normal healthy volunteers and normal healthy elderly volunteers. Other Phase 1 studies are ongoing or planned and our toxicology program for ITI-1284 continues to progress.
- In 2023, we plan to begin Phase 2 programs in agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), generalized anxiety disorder, and psychosis in patients with AD.
- Phosphodiesterase type I inhibitor (PDE1) program: Our portfolio of PDE1 inhibitors is being developed to treat diseases in which PDE1 activity is highly active.
- Lenrispodun (ITI-214) is our lead PDE1 inhibitor compound. We completed Phase 1 trials including drug-drug interaction, bioavailability from scale up batches and food effect studies. We also conducted a Phase 1/2 trial in patients with Parkinson’s disease to evaluate safety and tolerability in this patient population. We expect to commence clinical conduct in a Phase 2 trial in Parkinson’s disease later this month.
- We have an active Investigational New Drug application to evaluate our newest candidate within the PDE1 inhibitor program, ITI-1020, as a novel cancer immunotherapy. A Phase 1 program in healthy volunteers is anticipated to commence in the first half of 2023.
- ITI-333 program: ITI-333, a 5-HT2A receptor antagonist and μ-opioid receptor partial agonist, provides potential utility in the treatment of opioid use disorder, pain and mood disorders. A multiple ascending dose study in healthy volunteers evaluating pharmacokinetics (PK), safety and tolerability commenced clinical conduct in the first quarter of 2023. Our neuroimaging study is ongoing.

CAPLYTA® (lumateperone) is indicated in adults for the treatment of schizophrenia and depressive episodes associated with bipolar I or II disorder (bipolar depression) as monotherapy and as adjunctive therapy with lithium or valproate.
Important Safety Information
- Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic drugs are at an increased risk of death. CAPLYTA is not approved for the treatment of patients with dementia-related psychosis.
- Antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviors in pediatric and young adults in short-term studies. All antidepressant-treated patients should be closely monitored for clinical worsening, and for emergence of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. The safety and effectiveness of CAPLYTA have not been established in pediatric patients.
Contraindications: CAPLYTA is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to lumateperone or any components of CAPLYTA. Reactions have included pruritus, rash (e.g., allergic dermatitis, papular rash, and generalized rash), and urticaria.
Warnings & Precautions: Antipsychotic drugs have been reported to cause:
- Cerebrovascular Adverse Reactions in Elderly Patients with Dementia-Related Psychosis, including stroke and transient ischemic attack. See Boxed Warning above.
- Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS), which is a potentially fatal reaction. Signs and symptoms include: high fever, stiff muscles, confusion, changes in breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure, elevated creatinine phosphokinase, myoglobinuria (and/or rhabdomyolysis), and acute renal failure. Patients who experience signs and symptoms of NMS should immediately contact their doctor or go to the emergency room.
- Tardive Dyskinesia, a syndrome of uncontrolled body movements in the face, tongue, or other body parts, which may increase with duration of treatment and total cumulative dose. TD may not go away, even if CAPLYTA is discontinued. It can also occur after CAPLYTA is discontinued.
- Metabolic Changes, including hyperglycemia, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, and weight gain. Hyperglycemia, in some cases extreme and associated with ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar coma or death, has been reported in patients treated with antipsychotics. Measure weight and assess fasting plasma glucose and lipids when initiating CAPLYTA and monitor periodically during long-term treatment.
- Leukopenia, Neutropenia, and Agranulocytosis (including fatal cases). Complete blood counts should be performed in patients with pre-existing low white blood cell count (WBC) or history of leukopenia or neutropenia. CAPLYTA should be discontinued if clinically significant decline in WBC occurs in absence of other causative factors.
- Decreased Blood Pressure & Dizziness. Patients may feel lightheaded, dizzy or faint when they rise too quickly from a sitting or lying position (orthostatic hypotension). Heart rate and blood pressure should be monitored and patients should be warned with known cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease. Orthostatic vital signs should be monitored in patients who are vulnerable to hypotension.
- Falls. CAPLYTA may cause sleepiness or dizziness and can slow thinking and motor skills, which may lead to falls and, consequently, fractures and other injuries. Patients should be assessed for risk when using CAPLYTA.
- Seizures. CAPLYTA should be used cautiously in patients with a history of seizures or with conditions that lower seizure threshold.
- Potential for Cognitive and Motor Impairment. Patients should use caution when operating machinery or motor vehicles until they know how CAPLYTA affects them.
- Body Temperature Dysregulation. CAPLYTA should be used with caution in patients who may experience conditions that may increase core body temperature such as strenuous exercise, extreme heat, dehydration, or concomitant anticholinergics.
- Dysphagia. CAPLYTA should be used with caution in patients at risk for aspiration.
Drug Interactions: CAPLYTA should not be used with CYP3A4 inducers. Dose reduction is recommended for concomitant use with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors or moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors.
Special Populations: Newborn infants exposed to antipsychotic drugs during the third trimester of pregnancy are at risk for extrapyramidal and/or withdrawal symptoms following delivery. Breastfeeding is not recommended. Dose reduction is recommended for patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment.
Adverse Reactions: The most common adverse reactions in clinical trials with CAPLYTA vs. placebo were somnolence/sedation, dizziness, nausea, and dry mouth.
CAPLYTA is available in 10.5 mg, 21 mg, and 42 mg capsules.
About CAPLYTA (lumateperone)
CAPLYTA 42 mg is an oral, once daily atypical antipsychotic approved in adults for the treatment of schizophrenia and depressive episodes associated with bipolar I or II disorder (bipolar depression) as monotherapy and as adjunctive therapy with lithium or valproate. While the mechanism of action of CAPLYTA is unknown, the efficacy of CAPLYTA could be mediated through a combination of antagonist activity at central serotonin 5-HT2A receptors and postsynaptic antagonist activity at central dopamine D2 receptors.
Lumateperone is being studied for the treatment of major depressive disorder, and other neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders. Lumateperone is not FDA-approved for these disorders.
