Gemphire Therapeutics Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results


LIVONIA, Mich., March 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gemphire Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:GEMP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapies for the treatment of dyslipidemia, a serious medical condition that increases the risk of life-threatening cardiovascular disease, focused on orphan indications, as well as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD/NASH), today announced its financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, and provided a corporate update.


“2018 was a year of progress for Gemphire with our Phase 2 INDIGO-1 trial investigating gemcabene in severe hypertriglyceridemia (SHTG) successfully meeting its primary endpoint,” said Steven Gullans,  Ph.D, CEO of Gemphire. “In addition, patient enrollment was completed in an investigator-initiated Phase 2 study in familial partial lipodystrophy (FPL).  On the other hand, the FDA requested that we provide additional information regarding preclinical toxicology before it will consider lifting our clinical hold and scheduling an End of Phase 2 (EOP2) meeting. We are moving propitiously to achieve this milestone and move into Phase 3.”


“In August, we received unexpected news when the pediatric non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) study was halted early by the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) due to unanticipated problems,” added Gullans. “While there were no serious adverse events (SAEs), the first three patients experienced increased circulating liver enzyme levels and increased liver fat content. Unlike prior studies of gemcabene in adults, the pediatric patients gained weight and did not experience a decrease in serum triglycerides (TGs).  Moreover patients were poorly compliant in taking the drug as assessed by tablet counts and blood drug levels. Being cautious with regard to the patients, we fully supported the decision to discontinue the trial, and we look forward to seeing how and whether, we can further resolve these findings.”


Fourth Quarter and Recent Corporate Highlights



Completed patient enrollment in a proof-of-concept (POC) Phase 2 trial investigating gemcabene in FPL


This investigator initiated trial (GEM-IIT-602) is an unblinded, 24 week study being conducted at the University of Michigan.


All patients receive 300 mg/day dose for the first 12 weeks, and then are randomized to either the same dose or a higher dose of 600 mg/day for the subsequent 12 weeks.


The primary endpoint is TG reduction from baseline after 12 weeks. Secondary endpoints include measurement of liver fat fraction by MRI-PDFF.


The trial is on track to report top-line results in the second quarter of 2019.


FPL is considered an orphan indication and represents an unmet clinical need.



The POC Phase 2 trial in pediatric non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was halted early


An open-label, 12 week, investigator initiated trial (GEM-IIT-601) was undertaken to assess gemcabene (300 mg/d) in pediatric patients (12-17 years old) with NAFLD.


The study enrolled 6 patients and in August 2018, the DSMB halted the trial early due to “unanticipated problems” in the first three patients.


The primary efficacy endpoint of alanine amino transferase (ALT) increased beyond baseline levels in two of these three patients. In addition, all three patients had an increase in the
