CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reviva Pharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVPH) (“Reviva” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapies that seek to address unmet medical needs in the areas of central nervous system (CNS), cardiovascular, metabolic, and inflammatory diseases, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022 and summarized recent business highlights.

“With over 30% enrollment across 15 sites in the United States for our pivotal Phase 3 RECOVER trial, multiple sites recently initiated in Europe, and additional sites in India expected by year-end, we remain well-positioned to deliver expected topline data for brilaroxazine in schizophrenia in mid-2023,” said Laxminarayan Bhat, Ph.D., Founder, President, and CEO of Reviva. “We believe brilaroxazine has broad therapeutic potential beyond schizophrenia. We continue to actively explore non-dilutive financing opportunities, including partnerships, to support expansion into other neuropsychiatric indications including bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder (MDD), and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), as well as pulmonary indications including pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), that also arise from underlying dysfunction in serotonin and dopamine signaling.”

Anticipated Milestones and Events

  • Enrollment initiation at sites in India for RECOVER Phase 3 study expected in Q4 2022
