Bronstein Out As Chairman

“I am incredibly proud of the company that we have built and the progress we have made to date,” commented Mr. Bronstein, “and I look forward to seeing the continued evolution of Wesana under Daniel’s leadership as the Company moves towards advancing its clinical development program and human clinical trials in the coming months later this year.”
Focus on FDA Studies
On March 14, 2022, Wesana reported it received a full written response from the FDA regarding their pre-IND meeting for the novel therapy and proprietary protocol of SANA-013 for the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) related MDD. “The Company received positive written responses from the FDA on March 11th outlining the requirements to open the IND and commence clinical studies for SANA-013. The written response provides a path to agreements on IND-enabling studies and validates the team’s recent effort and accomplishments. The FDA response also provided important insights pertaining to advancing SANA-013 as a potential treatment for TBI-related MDD.” Wesana said it intends to initiate its in-human clinical study program in late 2022.
