Re: BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc.
  Registration Statement on Form S-3
  File No. 333-275261


To the addressee set forth above:


Pursuant to Rule 477 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby requests withdrawal, effective immediately, of its Withdrawal Request dated November 13, 2023 filed on Form RW with respect to the above-referenced Registration Statement. The Withdrawal Request was incorrectly filed on EDGAR as a Withdrawal Request for the Registration Statement (Form RW) rather than as Correspondence with respect to the withdrawal of the Company’s prior acceleration request. To be clear, the Company is not requesting to withdraw the above registration statement, merely the Form RW that was incorrectly tagged.


Please contact Keith L. Halverstam of Latham & Watkins LLP at (212) 906-1761 or N. Danny Shulman at (212) 906-4510 if there are any questions regarding this matter.


  Very truly yours,
