Gemphire Therapeutics Reports Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results and Provides Corporate Update



LIVONIA, Mich., November 8, 2018

 -- Gemphire Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: GEMP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapies for cardiometabolic disorders, including dyslipidemia and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), today announced financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2018, and provided a corporate update.


“During the third quarter we had several accomplishments that are important to the continued development of gemcabene,” said Steven Gullans, Ph.D., CEO of Gemphire. “We negotiated our license agreement with Pfizer to extend the timeline to commercialization of gemcabene and we renegotiated the terms of our debt facility with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) to provide additional flexibility. We also made significant adjustments to our headcount and cash burn to extend our cash runway into at least the fourth quarter of 2019.”


“Our immediate priority is to work closely with the FDA to release the partial clinical hold on gemcabene, with the goal of proceeding to an End of Phase 2 meeting in 2019 and reaching agreement on the design of a Phase 3 clinical program. We continue to believe that gemcabene is a differentiated, late stage candidate for cardiometabolic disease, and has successfully shown clinical benefits in both orphan and broader dyslipidemia indications,” concluded Dr. Gullans.  


Third quarter 2018 Corporate Highlights


Gemcabene is on partial clinical hold with respect to clinical trials of longer than six months in duration. The Company plans to conduct a sub-chronic (13-week) toxicology study that has been requested by the FDA and expects to submit the additional results in the second quarter of 2019.  The Company continues to be free to conduct clinical trials with gemcabene that are six months or less in duration.


In the ongoing 24 week open-label Phase 2a trial investigating gemcabene in adult patients with familial partial lipodystrophy (FPL), an interim safety review by the Data Safety and Monitoring Board (DSMB) of the first three patients, on a dose of 300 mg/dL,  did not uncover safety or tolerability concerns nor was there a change in biomarkers that would indicate concerns about liver function.  The principal investigator in the trial intends to closely monitor these patients while including MRI-PDFF scans to be reviewed at interim time points. Following the DSMB interim review, additional patients have been enrolled and top-line data, including MRI-PDFF, is expected in Q2 2019. 


The investigator-led open label Phase 2a proof-of-concept trial evaluating gemcabene in pediatric patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was terminated due to lack of efficacy and liver signals observed in the patients that underwent 12-week MRI-PDFF imaging scans. In cooperation with the principal investigator, the Company is continuing to gather information to determine whether the unanticipated problems could be related to variables such as diet, age, compliance, or other factors.  


The Company amended the license agreement with Pfizer to extend the period of first commercial sale of gemcabene to April 2024.


The Company amended the debt facility agreement with SVB to provide additional flexibility.
