Gemphire Announces First Quarter 2017 Financial Results and

Provides Corporate Update


LIVONIA, Michigan, May 9, 2017 -- Gemphire Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: GEMP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapies for cardiometabolic disorders, including dyslipidemia and NASH, today announced

financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017, and provided a corporate update.


“The first quarter was a very productive start to 2017 for Gemphire, highlighted by continued progress in developing gemcabene, our first-in-class, once-daily, oral drug candidate for the treatment of dyslipidemia and NALFD/NASH,” said Mina Sooch, President and CEO of Gemphire.  “We are currently conducting three late stage clinical trials for gemcabene: our COBALT-1 trial for HoFH patients; our ROYAL-1 trial for hypercholesterolemia, including HeFH and ASCVD patients on maximally tolerated statins; and, our INDIGO-1 trial for SHTG patients.  During the quarter, we completed enrollment of both our COBALT-1 and ROYAL-1 trials, on or ahead of schedule, and enrolled our first patients in our INDIGO-1 trial.  We expect to report top line data from our COBALT-1 and ROYAL-1 studies in June and third quarter 2017, respectively.  The third trial, INDIGO-1, is currently enrolling and we expect top line data in early 2018.  Based on gemcabene’s lipid-lowering and anti-inflammatory mechanism of action, and on the strength of positive preclinical data we announced during the first quarter, we also have plans to launch a Phase 2 clinical development program in NASH this year.”


First Quarter & Recent Corporate Highlights


In January, we announced positive preclinical proof of concept data on gemcabene in the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and plans to launch a clinical development program in NASH.


In January, we announced positive interim data on the LDL-C primary endpoint from the ongoing open label COBALT-1 trial investigating gemcabene in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia  (HoFH) patients.  No serious adverse events (SAEs) have been reported and the safety profile remains consistent with previous studies.


In March, we presented results of a double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled, Phase 2 trial that investigated the insulin sensitization and LDL-C lowering of gemcabene in non-diabetic, obese patients at the American College of Cardiology 66th Annual Scientific Session in Washington, D.C.  Gemcabene was associated with a doubling of mean increase in glucose disposal rate to 13% compared to a 6.8% increase for placebo, and it lowered LDL-C by 40%, consistent with past results in hypercholesterolemia subjects.


In March, we closed a $12.5 million private placement that extends the Company’s projected cash runway to late 2018.  The net proceeds provide funding for the planned clinical development program for gemcabene in NASH patients, manufacturing and related process development activities, and general corporate purposes.  


In May, we presented a poster on gemcabene’s mechanism of action at the Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology | Peripheral Vascular Disease (ATVB|PVD) 2017 Scientific Sessions, which took place in Minneapolis, MN.
