Company to host conference call and webcast today at 8:00 a.m. ET
MIAMI, FL, Aug. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Veru Inc. (NASDAQ: VERU), a late clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel medicines for metastatic breast cancer and for viral induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), today announced financial results for its fiscal 2023 third quarter and provided a business update.
“This quarter was marked by important Company efforts to seek additional regulatory clarity from FDA regarding our two lead development programs, enobosarm and sabizabulin and to secure funding sources,” said Mitchell Steiner, M.D., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Veru. “We recently received further FDA regulatory clarity on the first stage of the Phase 3 ENABLAR-2 clinical trial design in order to add enobosarm alone as well as enobosarm in combination with abemaciclib as a 2nd line treatment for metastatic breast cancer with objective tumor response rates (ORR) as the primary endpoint. If ORR improvement is significant, we plan to pursue the accelerated approval pathway. As for sabizabulin, although there is a new summer and expected fall/winter COVID-19 surge, we believe that sabizabulin, as a broad antiviral and anti-inflammatory agent, may address viral lung infections and ARDS caused by other common viruses as well. Accordingly, we plan to discuss with FDA expanding the sabizabulin Phase 3 confirmatory study to include all hospitalized adult patients who have any kind of viral induced lung infection (influenza and RSV in addition to COVID) requiring supplemental oxygen and who are at risk for ARDS. FDA has granted this meeting for September 2023. Viral induced pneumonia and lung infection is a leading cause of hospitalization in the U.S. according to the American Thoracic Society. In the U.S. alone, it is common to see well over 2 million hospitalizations annually from viral induced lung infections.”
Dr. Steiner added: “During the quarter, we continued to make great progress on reducing our cash burn as we focus on our prioritized Phase 3 clinical programs. The Company’s cash burn during the quarter was $7.3 million, a $16.1 million reduction compared to the prior quarter. We also increased available capital through the completed $20 million ENTADFI sale and the $100 million Lincoln Park Capital Fund common stock purchase agreement. I am also excited to report that our sexual health business is making great progress with the FC2 Female Condom® telehealth platform prescription business in the U.S. which has turned around and is growing to provide additional cash that we can invest, as we have done historically, in our two Phase 3 clinical development programs for large market opportunities.”
Oncology Program Update:
The Company’s oncology drug pipeline is focused on the clinical development of enobosarm, an oral selective androgen receptor agonist, for the 2nd line treatment of metastatic breast cancer.
Enobosarm is a new kind of endocrine therapy for advanced breast cancer. Enobosarm is an oral, new chemical entity, selective androgen receptor agonist that activates the androgen receptor (AR) in AR+ ER+ HER2- metastatic breast cancer, which suppresses tumor growth without the unwanted masculinizing side effects and increases in hematocrit seen with androgens.
Phase 3 clinical ENABLAR-2 study – Enobosarm +/- abemaciclib (CDK 4/6 inhibitor) combination versus estrogen blocking agent (active control) as a 2nd line treatment for AR+ ER+ HER2- metastatic breast cancer.
On March 30, 2023, the Company met with the FDA to gain further agreement on Phase 3 clinical trial design and program. The Phase 3 study has been amended to accommodate the FDA’s latest recommendations to support registration as a second line treatment for patients with AR+ ER+ HER2- metastatic breast cancer who have tumor progression while receiving a CDK 4/6 inhibitor plus an estrogen blocking agent (nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor or selective estrogen receptor degrader). The Phase 3 ENABLAR-2 study has 2 distinct study stages:
In Stage 1 of the Phase 3 study which will enroll 160 patients, the objectives are to optimize the dose of enobosarm in the abemaciclib combination and to assess the efficacy of enobosarm as a monotherapy compared to an estrogen blocking agent active control. The primary endpoint for Stage 1 is ORR. The Stage 1 initial run-in enrolled 3 patients to assess the safety and pharmacokinetics of the abemaciclib + enobosarm 9mg combination. In this run-in portion, there were no drug-to-drug interactions between abemaciclib and enobosarm, and there were no new safety findings. Further, the early preliminary clinical results showed 2 partial responses and 1 stable disease in the first 3 patients based on local assessments, and all patients have been on study for over 9 months. Our current plan is to have Phase 3 Stage 1 clinical results by late 2024 or early 2025. If enobosarm monotherapy or abemaciclib + enobosarm combination therapy compared to estrogen blocking agent (active control) demonstrates significant improvement in ORR, which is considered a surrogate endpoint for clinical benefit, then the Company plans to meet with the FDA to consider an accelerated approval regulatory pathway based on the clinical data from the Stage 1 portion of the Phase 3 study.
In Stage 2 of the Phase 3 study, we plan to enroll approximately 200 subjects in a multicenter, open label, randomized (1:1), active control clinical study, to evaluate the efficacy and safety of enobosarm with or without abemaciclib therapy (depending on the outcome of Stage 1) versus an alternative estrogen blocking agent (selective estrogen receptor degrader or an aromatase inhibitor) in subjects with AR+ ER+ HER2- metastatic breast cancer who have failed a CDK 4/6 inhibitor plus an estrogen blocking agent (nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor or selective estrogen receptor degrader). The primary endpoint for Stage 2 of the Phase 3 study is progression-free survival.
In January 2022, Veru entered into a clinical trial collaboration and supply agreement through which Eli Lilly supplies abemaciclib for the ENABLAR-2 trial.
Infectious Disease: Viral Induced Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) Program Updates
We have agreement with FDA on the design of the Phase 3 confirmatory COVID-19 study, but given the current COVID-19 landscape and unmet need for other types of viral induced ARDS in general, the Company now plans to meet with the FDA to reach agreement on the design of a proposed expanded Phase 3 confirmatory study evaluating sabizabulin 9mg for the treatment of hospitalized adult patients who have any viral lung infection, including SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A and B, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and other viruses, and who require oxygen support and are at high risk for ARDS. The FDA has granted this meeting with Veru for September 2023.
The Company is developing sabizabulin 9mg, a novel oral microtubule disruptor, which has both host targeted antiviral and broad anti-inflammatory properties, as a two-pronged approach to the treatment of hospitalized patients with viral lung infection at high risk for ARDS and death. The Company has completed positive Phase 2 and positive Phase 3 COVID-19 clinical studies that have demonstrated that sabizabulin treatment resulted in a mortality benefit in hospitalized moderate to severe patients with COVID-19 viral lung infection at high risk for ARDS and death. On April 27, 2023, the Company met with the FDA and reached agreement on the design of the Phase 3 confirmatory COVID-19 clinical trial to evaluate sabizabulin treatment of hospitalized moderate to severe COVID-19 patients who are at high risk for ARDS and the path forward to submit a new EUA application and/or NDA.
On April 4, 2023, Veru announced positive results from a sabizabulin animal study conducted by a team of researchers at Labcorp Early Development Laboratories, Ltd, United Kingdom. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of sabizabulin in the influenza H1N1 pulmonary inflammation mouse ARDS model. In the final study report, sabizabulin significantly reduced key cytokines involved in ARDS in H1N1 influenza pulmonary inflammation murine ARDS model. This positive preclinical influenza animal study further supports the potential use of sabizabulin as a broad antiviral and anti-inflammatory agent for viral induced ARDS.
As viruses that cause viral lung infection and ARDS do so in a similar way, the Company believes sabizabulin has the potential to be a treatment for all types of viral lung infections in hospitalized adult patients on oxygen who are at high risk for ARDS and death – not only SARS-CoV-2, but also influenza A or B, RSV, and other viruses. Although we have reached agreement with the FDA for the design of Phase 3 confirmatory COVID-19 clinical trial, the Company now plans to meet with the FDA again to reach agreement on the design of a proposed expanded Phase 3 confirmatory study evaluating sabizabulin 9mg for the treatment of hospitalized adult patients who have any kind of viral lung infection and on oxygen support who are at high risk for ARDS. The FDA has granted a meeting with Veru for September 2023. If we reach agreement with the FDA on the proposed ARDS sabizabulin study, we would not pursue the Phase 3 confirmatory COVID-19 only study or the influenza A or B only study.
Sabizabulin, as a host directed therapeutic, has been selected as a finalist drug candidate for consideration by The Influenza & Emerging Infectious Diseases Division of BARDA (The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) for a planned large multicenter, placebo-controlled clinical trial in hospitalized adult patients with ARDS. A decision by BARDA for final selection is expected during calendar Q4 2023. This clinical trial sponsored by BARDA plans to evaluate the safety and efficacy of up to 3 novel threat-agnostic and host-directed therapeutics representing different mechanisms of action that could address ARDS caused by known and unknown health security threats such as pandemic influenza, COVID-19, other emerging infectious diseases, and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear incidents.
Sabizabulin, a Novel Oral Microtubule Disruptor, for the Treatment of Viruses that Pose Serious Worldwide Global Threats
On April 11, 2023, Veru announced positive results from a preclinical in vitro study conducted by a team of researchers led by Brian M. Ward, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Rochester, New York. The preclinical study evaluated the effects of sabizabulin against the prototypical poxvirus, vaccinia virus, which demonstrated that sabizabulin prevented both the release of poxvirus from infected cells and the spread of poxvirus to healthy cells. The Company plans to have preIND meetings with the FDA to discuss Animal Rule regulatory requirements for assessing the efficacy of sabizabulin for smallpox virus as well as Ebola virus. The smallpox virus pre-IND meeting has been granted and will take place in August 2023. Clinical human efficacy trials of drugs for preventing or treating viral infections, such as smallpox are not feasible and challenge studies in healthy subjects are unethical. Therefore, drugs for these indications are generally developed and approved under a regulatory pathway commonly referred to as the Animal Rule (21 CFR part 314, subpart I, for drugs and 21 CFR part 601, subpart H, for biologics). The FDA may grant marketing approval based on adequate and well-controlled animal efficacy studies when the results of those studies establish that the drug is reasonably likely to produce clinical benefit in humans.
Urev – Sexual Health Program Updates
ENTADFI® (finasteride and tadalafil) capsules for oral use, a New Treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
In April 2023, the Company sold ENTADFI®, an FDA-approved oral, once daily product for BPH for men with an enlarged prostate experiencing the signs and symptoms of BPH for up to 26 weeks, to Blue Water Biotech for $20 million ($6 million upfront and the remaining $14 million in installments through Fiscal Year 2024), with the potential for up to an additional $80 million from sales milestones.
FC2 Female Condom® (internal condom)
The Company sells FC2 in both the U.S. commercial sector and in the public health sector both in the U.S. and globally. FC2 is the only FDA approved female (internal) condom in the US. FC2 is a well-established business that has sold over 750 million female condoms worldwide. Since 2017, FC2 has generated over $213 million of net revenue. We have and plan to continue to invest the profits from the FC2 business to help fund the clinical development of our drug candidates, enobosarm and sabizabulin.
Telehealth is an important commercial strategy in the U.S. for access to birth control products especially FC2 as a nonhormonal and latex free option to prevent pregnancy and transmission of sexually transmitted infections. In order to maximize its reach and to have more direct control of the promotion, distribution, and sales of FC2, the Company made the decision last year to launch its own independent, FC2-dedicated telehealth digital portal. The Company continues to invest in and grow its direct to patient telehealth portal as well as adding new telehealth and internet fulfillment pharmacy partners to provide coverage in all 50 states in the U.S.
Having taken the time to refine our marketing, drive operational improvements, and enhance the patient experience during the initial launch phase over the last nine months, there are increasing new prescriptions being written and filled through our FC2 telehealth portal. During the third quarter of fiscal 2023, we saw our acquisition costs remain stable with new prescriptions growing over 115%, providing prescriptions to approximately 4,400 patients in total. We believe these results support our strategy and demonstrate high demand for FC2. We plan to continue to grow and deepen our investment in a profitable way by further expanding our presence both in social media channels and online search.
In the U.S. public sector, the company has seen an 115% increase in volume for the third quarter fiscal 2023 versus the third quarter fiscal 2022. This growth is attributable to key US public sector partnerships including the Company’s recent announcement in April 2023 that it has entered into a Purchasing Agreement with Afaxys Group Services, LLC (AGS), the #1 provider of oral and emergency contraceptives in US clinics.
In the global public health sector outside the U.S., the Company markets FC2 to entities, including ministries of health, government health agencies, U.N. agencies, nonprofit organizations and commercial partners, that work to support and improve the lives, health and well-being of women around the world. We are currently supplying a large multi-year South African tender for female condoms, which is expected to continue until 2025 and have seen sales grow in the current year as the current tender launched. We also expect a formal Brazil tender process to commence later this year.
In June 2023, the Company announced that The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), oncology drug discovery research partner to Veru Inc., secured two additional grants to develop oncology therapeutics for indications of high unmet need. UTHSC was awarded $924,000 from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and $3,074,470 from the National Cancer Institute’s Research Project Grant (NCI R01). These two new grants awarded to UTHSC bring the university’s aggregate oncology funding related to this project to over $10 million.
In May 2023, the Company entered into a common stock purchase agreement for the purchase of up to $100 million with Lincoln Park Capital Fund. In May 2023, the Company also entered into a common stock open market sale agreement (At-the-Market facility) with Jefferies LLC for the sale of up to $75 million.
