LIVONIA, Mich., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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.” Research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $5.3 million compared to $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.  The increase was primarily attributable to increased clinical trial activities encompassing three separate Phase 2b clinical trials on-going in the current year period versus no active clinical studies in the prior year period.  Research and development expenses included $0.3 million in share‑based compensation expense during the three months ended March 31, 2017.  There was no share‑based compensation expense included in research and development expense during the three months ended March 31, 2016. General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $2.2 million compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.  Increased infrastructure costs to support the clinical trials and public company requirements, focused primarily in increased personnel costs, including share-based compensation expense, and professional services were the primary drivers of the increase over the prior year period.  General and administrative expenses included $0.6 million and $0.1 in share‑based compensation expense during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $7.5 million or ($0.79) per basic and diluted share, compared to $2.3 million, or ($0.65) per basic and diluted share in the same period of 2016. Cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2017 totaled $29.3 million compared to $24.0 million at December 31, 2016.  On March 15, 2017, the Company closed its previously announced private placement and received gross proceeds of approximately $12.5 million. As we previously guided, management expects full year operating expenses and cash used in operating activities to be approximately double 2016 levels, primarily in research and development as we fund our ongoing clinical trials, and to be more heavily weighted in the first two quarters of 2017, aligned with the activity levels of ongoing trials.  Accordingly, we expect second quarter 2017 operating expenses and cash used in operations to continue to be substantially above comparable prior period levels, and to be above first quarter 2017 levels.  In addition, management expects quarterly non-cash, share-based compensation levels to trend at or above first quarter levels through 2017.  Based on the Company’s current operating plans, management believes existing cash, including the net proceeds from the private placement, is sufficient to fund operations through completion of all three of the ongoing dyslipidemia trials, as well as the new NASH Phase 2 trial expected to be complete in the second half of 2018. In January 2017, Gemphire announced plans to initiate clinical development of gemcabene in NASH.  The decision to rapidly advance in NASH was based on multiple completed clinical trials in which gemcabene has shown the ability to lower biomarkers for blood lipids such as triglycerides (fat) and inflammation, both of which are relevant in the pathogenesis of NASH along with positive results from the recent preclinical NASH model.  In a preclinical study conducted in diabetic mice, a hepatoprotective effect preventing liver disease progression was observed with gemcabene, in contrast to the control group.  Specifically, gemcabene treatment resulted in a significant lowering of the liver NAFLD activity score (NAS), a composite measure of fatty liver disease comprised of measures of steatosis, inflammation, and hepatocyte ballooning.  Progression of liver fibrosis was also significantly reduced with gemcabene treatment.  The data from the preclinical NASH study has been submitted for publication in a peer review journal.  Following the acceptance of gemcabene’s IND in NASH, Gemphire plans to initiate the Phase 2 AZURE-1 trial for NASH in the second half of 2017.  The Company believes gemcabene’s ability to lower both triglycerides and inflammation while also reducing the progression of fibrosis through multiple mechanisms, may represent a differentiated treatment option for NASH patients. Also in January 2017, the Company announced positive interim data on the LDL-C primary endpoint from the ongoing open label COBALT-1 trial.  COBALT-1 is evaluating gemcabene in HoFH patients.  The results from two genetically-confirmed HoFH patients through 8 weeks of treatment showed that gemcabene 600 mg decreased mean LDL-C by 28% on top of maximum statin and/or ezetimibe.  No SAEs have been reported, where reported AEs have been mild to moderate and are consistent with previously completed studies.  HoFH is an extremely rare disease, and the Company believes the total number of subjects in its trial will be sufficient to support advancement into Phase 3. In March, the Company announced the results of a Phase 2 trial that investigated insulin sensitization and LDL-C lowering by gemcabene in non-diabetic, obese patients.  The results were featured in a poster presentation at the American College of Cardiology 66th Annual Scientific Session in Washington, D.C.  Fifty-three subjects entered the trial, ranging in age from 26 to 63 years, BMI 30 to 40kg/m2, and fasting glucose <126mg/dL, entered the study.  Following a 2-week screening phase, subjects were randomized to receive either 900 mg gemcabene or placebo on Day 2 through Week 4.  Gemcabene was associated with a doubling of 13% mean increase in glucose disposal rate (GDR) compared to a 6.8% increase for placebo.  Although statistical significance was not observed in the pre-specified analysis, a post-hoc analysis more applicable to the size of this study showed a statistically significant change from baseline to Day 29 in GDR for gemcabene 900 mg (p<0.0178) versus a non-significant effect for placebo.  In addition, gemcabene 900 mg lowered LDL-C by 40% (p<0.0001) and plasma total cholesterol by 27% (p<0.0001) consistent with past results in hypercholesterolemia subjects.  Gemcabene was generally well-tolerated.  There were no deaths, SAEs, or withdrawals due to adverse events during the study. In May, the Company presented a Poster at the Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology | Peripheral Vascular Disease (ATVB|PVD) 2017 Scientific Sessions confirming the pleiotropic effects with multiple mechanisms of action for gemcabene in in vitro models.  Across the various models, gemcabene was shown to lower hepatic gene biomarkers for lipid regulation (ACC1, APOC-III, Sulfatase 2,ADH4, and HMG-CoA Synthase 2) and inflammation (CRP, TNF-α, MCP-1, CCR2, CCR5, NF-Kβ, MIP-1β) as well as plasma biomarkers (LDL-C, TG, hsCRP). About Gemcabene Gemphire’s product candidate, gemcabene (CI-1027), is a first-in-class, once-daily, oral therapy that may be suitable for patients who are unable to achieve normal levels of LDL-C or triglycerides with currently approved therapies, primarily statins.  Gemcabene's mechanism of action is designed to enhance the clearance of very low-density lipoproteins (VLDLs) in the plasma and inhibition of the production of cholesterol and triglycerides in the liver.  The combined effect for these mechanisms has been clinically observed to result in a reduction of plasma VLDL-C, LDL-C, and triglycerides.  In addition, gemcabene has been shown to markedly lower C-reactive protein and improve insulin sensitization.  Gemcabene is liver-directed and reduces apoC-III mRNA and plasma levels.  Gemcabene also reduces acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC1) and CCR2/CCR5 receptor mRNA levels, which may have applications in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)/non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).  Gemcabene has demonstrated proof of concept efficacy in the STAM™ model for NASH developed at SMC Laboratories in Tokyo, Japan.  Gemcabene has been tested as monotherapy and in combination with statins and other drugs in 895 subjects across 18 Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials and has demonstrated promising evidence of efficacy, safety and tolerability. About Gemphire Gemphire is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that is committed to helping patients with cardiometabolic disorders, including dyslipidemia and NASH.  We are focused on providing new treatment options for cardiometabolic diseases through our complementary, convenient, cost-effective product candidate gemcabene as add-on to the standard of care especially statins that will benefit patients, physicians, and payors.  Gemphire has initiated 3 clinical trials for homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH), heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH)/atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), and severe hypertriglyceridemia (SHTG) under NCT02722408, NCT02634151, and NCT02944383, respectively with a fourth planned trial in NASH to initiate in second half of 2017.  Please visit www.gemphire.com for more information.

Visible in the southern night sky, the LMC and SMC are dwarf galaxies that orbit our home galaxy and lie at a distance of 160 and 200 thousand light-years from Earth respectively, "There were hints that this magnetic field might exist, but no one had observed it until now," says Jane Kaczmarek, a PhD student in the School of Physics, University of Sydney, and lead author of the paper describing the finding. Such cosmic magnetic fields can only be detected indirectly, and this detection was made by observing the radio signals from hundreds of very distant galaxies that lie beyond the LMC and SMC. The observations were made with the Australia Telescope Compact Array radio telescope at the Paul Wild Observatory in New South Wales, Australia. "The radio emission from the distant galaxies served as background 'flashlights' that shine through the Bridge," says Kaczmarek. "Its magnetic field then changes the polarization of the radio signal. How the polarized light is changed tells us about the intervening magnetic field." A radio signal, like a light wave, oscillates or vibrates in a single direction or plane; for example, waves on the surface of a pond move up and down. When a radio signal passes through a magnetic field, the plane is rotated. This phenomenon is known as Faraday Rotation and it allows astronomers to measure the strength and the polarity—or direction—of the field. The observation of the magnetic field, which is one millionth the strength of the Earth's, may provide insight into whether it was generated from within the Bridge after the structure formed, or was "ripped" from the dwarf galaxies when they interacted and formed the structure. "In general, we don't know how such vast magnetic fields are generated, nor how these large-scale magnetic fields affect galaxy formation and evolution," says Kaczmarek. "The LMC and SMC are our nearest neighbours, so understanding how they evolve may help us understand how our Milky Way Galaxy will evolve." "Understanding the role that magnetic fields play in the evolution of galaxies and their environment is a fundamental question in astronomy that remains to be answered." The paper is one of a growing number of new results that are building a map of the Universe's magnetism. According to Prof. Bryan Gaensler, Director of the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics, University of Toronto, and a co-author on the paper, "Not only are entire galaxies magnetic, but the faint delicate threads joining galaxies are magnetic, too. Everywhere we look in the sky, we find magnetism." The paper appeared in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

For the first time, astronomers have detected a magnetic field associated with the Magellanic Bridge, the filament of gas stretching 75 thousand light-years between the Milky Way Galaxy's nearest galactic neighbours: the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC, respectively).

— Market Highlights A solenoid valve is an electromechanically operated valve. The valve is controlled by an electric current through an inbuilt solenoid along with a plunger that acts as an actuator to control the valve. It is unidirectional and can only act to open the valve when an electrical signal makes it active. Therefore solenoid valves are particularly used to allow the flow when and as long as an electrical signal is sent to the valve. The solenoid valves can be operated using either of DC (Direct Current) or AC (Alternating Current) electrical signals. Solenoid valves are used to control and modulate the flow of liquids and gases.

LTL tracking is critical to delivering end-to-end visibility but presents unique challenges because LTL loads often undergo a complex series of handoffs, including time spent at cross-docks and distribution centers. Determining load status at every point along that journey requires the industry’s best data. By partnering with SMC³, FourKites eliminates this difficulty and solves the challenge of providing accurate, real-time visibility for LTL shipments. “FourKites is a trusted SMC³ partner, and we’re pleased to join forces with an innovative and recognized leader in providing real-time supply chain visibility across all transportation modes,” said SMC³ President and CEO Andrew Slusher. “By selecting SMC³’s LTL APIs, FourKites is powering its platform with best-in-class freight APIs that optimize the complete LTL shipment lifecycle, solving the visibility needs of customers by providing reliable, secure solutions.”   “FourKites is committed to bringing superior visibility to the entire global supply chain — all loads, all modes, all stops,” said Matt Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites. “Partnering with the industry leader in LTL ensures that we can continue to give our customers the best information available for this mode, allowing them to make powerful, informed decisions, and provide better customer service on loads that have traditionally been very difficult to track.” SMC³ is the one-stop knowledge hub for less than truckload technology, data and education.

In addition to the $30,000 donation, SMC³ has announced it will donate 10 percent of each paid registration fee from Jump Start 2018, one of North America’s preeminent supply chain conferences, to the American Red Cross through the end of September.

Hurricane Irma followed when it hit Florida September 10 and 11, after causing devastation in the Caribbean. Relief efforts to bring aid to victims of both natural disasters will be stretched out for months and years to come. “Hurricanes Harvey and Irma uprooted families and disrupted many lives. Our employees immediately set about offering assistance to victims of these natural disasters,” said Andrew Slusher, SMC³ CEO and president. “Given the magnitude of the damage caused by these storms, I felt that SMC³ should amplify the charitable work done by our caring and compassionate team of professionals. We’re thankful that we can provide aid where and when it is needed so those affected by the storms can get back on their feet.” SMC³ has a longstanding commitment to humanitarian efforts. Much of this occurs in the immediate community, but when a disaster strikes, the company strives to help out in any way possible. During initial recovery efforts for the hurricanes, employees were engaged locally in sending relief supplies to Houston and the surrounding area. SMC³ has also been a longtime sponsor of local charities and arts organizations.
