OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS  

On January 26, 2012, Vanda announced that initial clinical data in the RESET study revealed the potential of tasimelteon to reset the body clock in Non-24-Hour Disorder.  The tasimelteon Non-24-Hour Disorder program continues to advance towards a projected mid-2013 NDA filing with the FDA.   Vanda is in continuing discussions with the FDA to confirm the path and requirements for this regulatory submission.  Vanda expects to complete the two Phase III efficacy studies, SET and RESET, by the end of 2012.

The tasimelteon MAGELLAN efficacy study for MDD is ongoing and Vanda expects to report top-line results in the first half of 2013. This Phase IIb/III study in MDD was initiated in September 2011 and is expected to enroll 500 patients across approximately 40 sites.

Full year 2011 Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, exceeded 120,000 compared to approximately 55,000 for 2010.  Vanda has been informed that Novartis is continuing the Phase II development program for the long-acting injectable formulation of Fanapt®.

The review of Vanda's Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for oral iloperidone tablets in the European Union is ongoing.  The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has provided its standard 120-day list of questions and has granted Vanda a 3-month extension, through mid-May 2012, for Vanda to prepare its response.  After further evaluation of the regulatory and commercial environment, Vanda has no current plans to pursue registration for Fanapt® in Singapore and Australia.  Regulatory filings for market approval of Fanapt® by Vanda's commercial partners are under review in Israel, Mexico and Argentina.
