Cyrano Therapeutics Enrolls First Patient in Phase 2 Trial of CYR-064 for Post-Viral Smell Loss (Hyposmia)

Cyrano Therapeutics, Inc., a regenerative medicine company pioneering the development of treatments for smell loss, announced today that it has commenced enrollment in the Phase 2 FLAVOR trial, a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, multi-dose clinical trial of CYR-064, its novel, soft-mist nasal-spray product candidate, for the treatment of post-viral hyposmia. Post-viral hyposmia is an increasingly prevalent and serious chronic sensory condition for which there is currently no approved drug therapy.

“Hyposmia, along with the associated alterations in taste results in a significant reduction in quality of life, as this common and serious condition manifests as a loss of two of the five basic human senses,” stated Mas Takashima, MD FACS, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at Houston Methodist Hospital and the principal investigator for the FLAVOR trial. “CYR-064 has the potential to become the first pharmaceutical product to restore the senses of smell and taste in patients with post-viral hyposmia and thereby address a major unmet clinical need.”

Cyrano Therapeutics expects to enroll approximately 150 subjects in the FLAVOR trial, which is designed to assess the local nasal safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of CYR-064 as compared to placebo in the treatment of post-viral hyposmia over a six-month period. The FLAVOR trial is a multi-institutional prospective study being conducted at fifteen clinical sites in the United States.

“We are excited to announce a significant milestone in our commitment to advancing medical science and improving the lives of those affected by post-viral smell loss,” said Rick Geoffrion, President and CEO of Cyrano Therapeutics, Inc. “With the enrollment of the first patients in our Phase 2 trial of CYR-064, we take a giant step forward in addressing a pressing health concern. In a world where post-viral smell loss continues to affect an ever-growing number of individuals, we’re dedicated to pioneering solutions that make a difference.”
