    rNAPc2 (AB201) – a small recombinant protein being developed as a potential treatment for COVID-19 and potentially other viral diseases.

    • On-going Phase 2b clinical trial (ASPEN-COVID-19) evaluating rNAPc2 as a potential treatment for patients hospitalized with COVID-19, enrolling patients at investigative sites in United States, Argentina and Brazil.
    • Clinical trial Data and Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC) completed a pre-specified interim analysis and, based on the DSMC's review of approximately 75% of the projected final efficacy and safety data, recommended completion of the clinical trial with no modifications to the clinical trial design.
    • Phase 2b topline data anticipated in first quarter of 2022.

    GencaroTM (bucindolol hydrochloride) - a pharmacologically unique beta-blocker and mild vasodilator being developed as a potential genetically-targeted treatment for atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with heart failure (HF).

    • ARCA currently has an agreement with the U.S. FDA, known as a Special Protocol Assessment, or SPA, for the requirements of a Gencaro Phase 3 clinical trial, PRECISION-AF, that would support potential approval of Gencaro if successful. The Company is currently evaluating the potential timing for initiation of PRECISION-AF relative to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ability to recruit patients for a cardiovascular clinical trial, and based on an improving clinical trial ecosystem, has begun organizing necessary trial logistics.

    Third Quarter 2021 Summary Financial Results

    Cash and cash equivalents were $58.3 million as of September 30, 2021, compared to $49.1 million as of December 31, 2020. ARCA believes that its current cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund its operations through 2022.

    Research and development (R&D) expenses were $3.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $1.1 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The $2.3 million increase in R&D expenses in the third quarter was primarily related to the initiation of the rNAPc2 clinical trial in the second half of 2020. R&D expenses in 2021 are expected to be higher than 2020 as the Company continues the rNAPc2 Phase 2b clinical trial.

    General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $1.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $0.9 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The $0.4 million increase in G&A expenses was primarily a result of higher personnel costs in 2021. G&A expenses in the last quarter of 2021 are expected to be consistent with the third quarter of 2021 as the Company maintains administrative activities to support its ongoing operations.

    Total operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 were $4.7 million compared to $2.0 million for the third quarter of 2020.

    Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 was $4.7 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, compared to $2.0 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share for the third quarter of 2020.

(NASDAQ:ABIO), a biopharmaceutical company applying a precision medicine approach to developing genetically targeted therapies for cardiovascular diseases, today provided an update on the ASPEN-COVID-19 Phase 2b clinical trial evaluating rNAPc2 as a potential treatment for patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19. The Company announced that the Data and Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC) has completed a pre-specified interim analysis and, based on the DSMC's review of approximately 75% of the projected final efficacy and safety data, recommended completion of the clinical trial with no modifications to the trial design. The rNAPc2 development program has been granted Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).   The Company now anticipates completion of target enrollment of 160 patients by year end 2021 and reporting of topline data in the first quarter of 2022.

    Dr. Michael Bristow, ARCA's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Clearing the final interim analysis with no recommended changes in the Phase 2b clinical trial design is an important step in a clinical trial and in the development of rNAPc2 for prevention of COVID-19-associated coagulopathy. We are focused on finishing the clinical trial, which we estimate will complete enrollment by year end. We look forward to sharing the top-line trial results in the first quarter of next year and reviewing the findings with the FDA."

    About ASPEN-COVID-19

    ASPEN-COVID-19 is a Phase 2b randomized, multi-center, international clinical trial evaluating two dose regimens of rNAPc2 versus heparin in approximately 160 hospitalized SARS-CoV-2 positive patients that also have an elevated D-dimer level. The primary endpoint of the trial is the change in D-dimer level from baseline to Day 8 relative to standard of care heparin. D-dimer is a biomarker commonly used for assessing coagulation activation, which is elevated in approximately 40% to 75% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients and is associated with adverse clinical outcomes.   Heparin is an anti-coagulant commonly given to any patient hospitalized in the United States for COVID-19.   Other objectives of Phase 2b are to assess safety, determine the optimal dose regimen of rNAPc2 for a potential Phase 3 clinical trial and evaluate multiple additional clinical endpoints as detailed in the ASPEN-COVID-19 listing on clinicaltrials.gov.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has designated the investigation of rNAPc2 as a potential treatment for COVID-19 as a Fast Track development program. ARCA believes that rNAPc2 is the only anticoagulant class new chemical entity in development for COVID-19.

    About rNAPc2 (AB201)

    rNAPc2 is a small recombinant protein being developed as a potential treatment for COVID-19 and potentially other viral diseases. rNAPc2 is a potent, selective inhibitor of tissue factor (TF), which has been identified as playing a central role in the inflammatory response to viral infections and in the process of viral dissemination. Its unique mechanism of action gives rNAPc2 a combination of anti-coagulant, anti-inflammatory and potential anti-viral properties, and therefore may be effective in addressing the impact of viral infections from multiple pathways. rNAPc2 has previously undergone Phase 1 and Phase 2 testing in more than 700 patients, including in clinical studies for prevention of venous and arterial thrombosis, where it showed efficacy in inhibiting the TF pathway and was well tolerated at therapeutic doses. Recent research suggests that the disease syndrome caused by coronavirus may have much in common with other severe infections in which the infection process causes inappropriate activation of the coagulation system and other aspects of the immune response, resulting in serious complications. Recent mechanistic discoveries, as well as prior data from studies in non-human primates (NHPs) given lethal doses of Ebola or Marburg filoviruses demonstrating morbidity and mortality reductions, decreases in inflammatory biomarkers and reduction in viral load, indicate that rNAPc2 may have important antiviral and anti-inflammatory activity in addition to its anticoagulant effects. The Company believes that collectively these observations provide a strong rationale for investigating rNAPc2 as a treatment for COVID-19 and other virus associated diseases.

    WESTMINSTER, Colo., Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARCA biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABIO), a biopharmaceutical company applying a precision medicine approach to developing genetically targeted therapies for cardiovascular diseases, today announced that the first international patient has been enrolled in ASPEN-COVID-19, the Phase 2b clinical trial evaluating rNAPc2 as a potential treatment for patients hospitalized with COVID-19. The patient was enrolled in Brazil. ARCA also plans to enroll patients from Argentina and is currently enrolling patients at multiple sites in the United States. The international Phase 2b trial is approximately 75% enrolled as of this date. The Company currently anticipates topline trial data in the fourth quarter of 2021.

    "The expansion of ASPEN-COVID-19 to trial sites in South America and the enrollment of the first patient in Brazil add further momentum to rNAPc2's clinical development focused on addressing the critical need for safe, efficacious treatments for hospitalized COVID-19 patients," said Dr. Michael Bristow, ARCA's President and Chief Executive Officer, who is also an American Heart Association (AHA) funded COVID-19 investigator. "With its combination of anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory and potential antiviral effects, rNAPc2 may favorably impact clinical recovery of patients hospitalized with COVID-19, and thus has the potential to be a uniquely beneficial therapy for these patients, and possibly for other virus associated diseases as well. We look forward to working with the excellent investigators at our trial sites in Argentina and Brazil and, assuming enrollment continues to go well, to sharing the results of this important study in the fourth quarter."

ARCA is developing rNAPc2 as a potential treatment for diseases caused by RNA viruses, initially focusing on COVID-19. The U.S. FDA has granted Fast Track designation to the rNAPc2 development program, currently in Phase 2b clinical testing. ARCA is also developing GencaroTM (bucindolol hydrochloride), an investigational, pharmacologically unique beta-blocker and mild vasodilator, as a potential treatment for atrial fibrillation in heart failure patients. ARCA has identified common genetic variations that it believes predict individual patient response to Gencaro, giving it the potential to be the first genetically targeted AF prevention treatment. The U.S. FDA has granted the Gencaro development program Fast Track designation and a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) agreement.
