In a previous Phase 2 trial, vatiquinone demonstrated a statistically significant effect on disease severity at 24 months relative to age and stage-matched natural history controls as assessed by the validated Friedreich ataxia rating scale (FARS) score and a favorable safety profile. Vatiquinone has been granted Orphan Drug Designation and Fast Track Designation for Friedreich ataxia by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
