    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlloVir (NASDAQ:ALVR), a late clinical-stage cell therapy company, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

    "In the third quarter, we completed our $317.7 million initial public offering creating a solid financial foundation for the next stage of AlloVir's growth," said David Hallal, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AlloVir. "We are now focused on leveraging our robust capabilities to execute our objectives across our pipeline, including commencing up to nine pivotal and proof-of-concept studies across three cell therapies this year and throughout 2021."

    David Hallal continued, "the Phase 1/2 clinical trial with ALVR109, our virus-specific T cell therapy designed to combat SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – has been initiated in high-risk patients and we are on track to initiate two additional studies with our lead product, Viralym-M, including a registrational, Phase 3 clinical trial for the treatment of virus-associated hemorrhagic cystitis and a proof-of-concept study for the prevention of multiple viral infections, both in allogeneic stem cell transplant patients before year end."

    Third Quarter Business Highlights

    • In August, the company closed its initial public offering (IPO) raising $317.7 million in gross proceeds prior to deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and offering expenses. The company expects its current cash and cash equivalents, inclusive of IPO net proceeds, will be sufficient to fund its current operating plan into 2023.
    • AlloVir expanded its regulatory expertise and management team by hiring Ercem Atillasoy, M.D., to the newly created position of Chief Regulatory and Safety Officer. Dr. Atillasoy has over 25 years of experience in clinical development, regulatory affairs, and safety. Most recently, he was the regulatory head at Merck and Co., responsible for all regulatory activities globally for the Infectious Disease and Vaccines franchises.
    • In September, Dana Alexander, M.B.A., joined the team as Senior Vice President, Technical Operations. Mr. Alexander brings more than 20 years of experience in biopharmaceutical operations, most recently as Head of Viral Vector Business Operations and Site General Manager at Brammer Bio, now part of Thermo Fisher Scientific. Prior to Brammer Bio, he held senior operational and manufacturing leadership positions at Anika Therapeutics and Genzyme, a Sanofi Company.
    • AlloVir has commenced tech transfer of its proprietary T cell manufacturing platform to ElevateBio BaseCamp, creating redundancy and ensuring manufacturing supply for full clinical pipeline with dedicated good manufacturing practice (GMP) capacity.

    Viralym-M (ALVR105) Program Highlights

    • The planned Phase 3, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy and safety of Viralym-M for the treatment of patients with virus-associated hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is on track to initiate in before year end.
    • Additionally, a proof-of-concept (POC) clinical trial targeting the prevention of BK virus (BKV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), adenovirus (AdV), Epstein Barr virus (EBV), human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6), and JC virus (JCV) in patients following allo-HSCT is also expected to initiate before year end
    • Real-world data demonstrating the burden of multi-virus infections following allo-HSCT, was presented in a poster session at IDWeek 2020.
    • Results from the Phase 2, POC, CHARMS study with Viralym-M as well as data demonstrating the economic and clinical burden of virus-associated HC in patients following allo-HSCT will be showcased in two oral presentations at the 62nd American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting & Exposition (ASH) in December 2020.

    ALVR109 Program Highlights

    • Initial clinical trial manufacturing runs of ALVR109 have been released and the proof-of-concept clinical trial with ALVR109 has been initiated.
    • In September, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the Investigational New Drug application (IND) for ALVR109, AlloVir's allogeneic, off-the-shelf, virus-specific T cell therapy candidate designed to target SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the severe and life-threatening viral disease, COVID-19.
    • Pre-clinical data on this program will be presented in an oral session at ASH and will be featured in the conference press program.

    ALVR106 Program Highlights

    • AlloVir anticipates filing the IND before year end for ALVR106, an allogeneic, off-the-shelf, multi-respiratory, virus-specific T cell therapy designed to target respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza, parainfluenza virus (PIV), and human metapneumovirus (hMPV).
    • The POC clinical trial will now initiate in 2021 as the company is assessing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the incidence, diagnosis and treatment of the respiratory viral infections which ALVR106 targets.
    • Real-world data demonstrating the burden of respiratory tract infections following allo-HSCT was presented in an oral session at IDWeek 2020.

    Third Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights

    • Research and development expenses were $17.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to $5.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The increase year-over-year is attributable to costs related to the development of the company's product candidates, increased activity in outsourcing of manufacturing, and an increase in headcount and external consultants in support of research activities.
    • General and administrative expense was $6.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to $2.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The increase year-over-year was primarily attributable to legal, accounting and professional fees related to costs associated with operating activities and the preparations for becoming a public company.
    • Stock-based compensation expense was $3.9 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
    • As of September 30, 2020, AlloVir had cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities of $378.5 million, which compares to cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities of $104.5 million as of June 30, 2020.
    • For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, net loss was $23.6 million or $0.58 per share compared to a net loss of $7.3 million or $4.97 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The total number of common shares outstanding as of September 30, 2020 was 65,106,873.

  4. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlloVir (NASDAQ:ALVR), a late clinical-stage cell therapy company, today announced that health outcomes analyses to be presented at IDWeek™ 2020 demonstrate the economic and clinical burden associated with respiratory tract infections and multi-virus infections following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT). The presentations include an oral presentation evaluating the economic and clinical burden of respiratory virus infections (RVI) in allo-HCT recipients and a poster presentation on health resource utilization and costs associated with multi-virus infections after allo-HCT. The studies report on U.S. claims data analyses of 13,363 allo-HCT patients between Jan. 1, 2012…

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlloVir (NASDAQ:ALVR), a late clinical-stage cell therapy company, today announced that health outcomes analyses to be presented at IDWeek™ 2020 demonstrate the economic and clinical burden associated with respiratory tract infections and multi-virus infections following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT). The presentations include an oral presentation evaluating the economic and clinical burden of respiratory virus infections (RVI) in allo-HCT recipients and a poster presentation on health resource utilization and costs associated with multi-virus infections after allo-HCT. The studies report on U.S. claims data analyses of 13,363 allo-HCT patients between Jan. 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2017 to assess total healthcare reimbursement, health resource utilization (HRU), and clinical outcomes in the year following allo-HCT.

    Oral Presentation: Economic and Clinical Burden of Respiratory Virus Infections in Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Recipients

    Date: On Demand, Starting Wednesday, October 21

    Presenter: Michael G. Ison, MD, MS, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL

    U.S. claims data from the Decision Resources Group Real World Evidence Data Repository was analyzed to identify allo-HCT recipients from 2012 – 2017 to assess health care reimbursements, HRU, and clinical outcomes in the one-year following allo-HCT in patients with and without RVI. The analysis studied patients who had been coded with one of four RVIs, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza, parainfluenza virus (PIV), and human metapneumovirus (hMPV). A generalized linear model was used to determine adjusted total reimbursement stratified by the presence or absence of any acute or chronic graft-versus-host diseases (GVHD) after adjusting for age, health plan, underlying disease, stem cell source, number of comorbidities, baseline costs, and follow-up time.

    Unadjusted median reimbursements were $132,395 higher for any RVI ($139,439 RSV, $101,963 influenza, $185,041 PIV, and $248,029 hMPV) compared to those without RVIs. Adjusted reimbursements were significantly higher for patients with any RVI compared to patients without that infection (p<.0001) with or without GVHD. Patients with any RVI had significantly longer length of stay (LOS) for the HCT hospitalization, higher readmission rate, and longer LOS after allo-HCT hospitalization compared to patients without RVI (p<.0001). The mean overall hospital LOS was significantly longer for patients with an RVI as compared to those without (13 days; p<.0001): 11 days longer for patients with RSV (p<.0001), 10 days longer for patients with influenza (p=.0002), 28 days longer for patients with PIV (p=.0001), and 19 days longer for patients with hMPV (p<.0001). A significantly higher proportion of patients with any RVI had pneumonia as compared to patients without that infection, irrespective of presence of GVHD (p< .0001). In the adjusted analysis, the presence of any RVI was significantly associated with all-cause mortality, regardless of the presence of GVHD (p<.0001).

    "Patients with T cell deficiencies, like those undergoing HCT, are at higher risk for respiratory viral infections," said Michael G. Ison, MD, MS, Professor, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and presenting author. "These data show that respiratory viral infections have a significant impact on patient outcomes, as exemplified by a higher proportion of patients developing pneumonia and a greater risk of mortality. Additionally, the burden to our healthcare system is great in terms of higher total cost, prolonged patient hospitalization, and more frequent patient readmissions. It's clear we need better treatment options to help patients prevent and fight off these commonly occurring respiratory viruses."

    Poster Presentation: Healthcare Resource Utilization and Costs Associated with Multi-virus Infection After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

    Date: On Demand, Starting Wednesday, October 21

    Poster #1089

    Presenter: Joshua A. Hill, MD, Assistant Professor, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, Seattle

    U.S. claims data was analyzed to compare health care reimbursements, HRU, and clinical outcomes between allo-HCT patients with no versus multiple dsDNA infections due to cytomegalovirus (CMV), BK virus (BKV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), JC virus (JCV), adenovirus (AdV), and human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6). The unadjusted mean reimbursements per patient group were $266,345 for individuals who did not have a dsDNA viral infection compared to $431,614 for patients with one virus; $639,097 for those with two viruses; and $964,378 for those with three or more viruses. Adjusted reimbursements were significantly higher for each additional viral infection among patients with and without GVHD compared to patients with no viral infections (p<.0001). HRU also increased as the number of viral infections increased: the mean overall hospital LOS increased significantly with each additional viral infection (p<.0001): 41.3 days for patients with no viruses compared to 61.4 days for one virus, 77.0 days for two viruses, and 103.3 days for three or more viruses. The LOS and the number of days in the ICU during the index hospitalization as well as in readmissions after index also increased significantly with each additional viral infection (p<.0001 for both outcomes).

    Allo-HCT patients with multiple dsDNA viral infections have worse clinical outcomes such as new diagnosis of renal impairment, irrespective of the presence of GVHD, and higher mortality rate for patients with GVHD. Among patients with GVHD, all-cause mortality (21.0%-21.4%) and new diagnosis of renal impairment (27.5%-35.7%) were significantly higher for patients with one or more viral infections as compared to patients with no viral infections (all-cause mortality: 16.8%; new diagnosis of renal impairment: 22.3%). Among patients without GVHD, new diagnosis of renal impairment (20.9%-30.2%) was significantly higher for patients with one or more viral infections as compared to patients with no viral infections (14.6%). In addition, patients with an increasing number of viral infections had a higher risk of all-cause mortality, after adjusting for GVHD and baseline characteristics.

    "Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation has revolutionized the way we treat some cancers," said Joshua A. Hill, MD, Assistant Professor, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and presenting author. "However, because of the conditioning regimen required to prepare patients for the transplant, it puts them in an immunocompromised state and at greater risk for viral infections. These data show that these viral infections have both significant impact on patient outcomes and on the health care systems working to treat them. For many of the viruses affecting these patients, there are limited or no treatment options."

  5. - ALVR109 is an allogeneic, off-the-shelf virus-specific T cell therapy candidate designed to target SARS-CoV-2 for high-risk COVID-19 patients

    - Proof-of-concept clinical trial with ALVR109 to begin in Q42020

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlloVir (NASDAQ:ALVR), a late clinical-stage cell therapy company, announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the Investigational New Drug application (IND) for ALVR109, an allogeneic, off-the-shelf virus-specific T cell therapy candidate designed to target SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the severe and life-threatening viral disease, COVID-19.

    - Proof-of-concept clinical trial with ALVR109 to begin in Q42020

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlloVir (NASDAQ:ALVR), a late clinical-stage cell therapy company, announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the Investigational New Drug application (IND) for ALVR109, an allogeneic, off-the-shelf virus-specific T cell therapy candidate designed to target SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the severe and life-threatening viral disease, COVID-19. ALVR109 is being developed to arrest the progression of COVID-19 by eradicating SARS-CoV-2 virus-infected cells.

    "SARS-CoV-2 continues to have a devastating impact on patients and families around the world," said David Hallal, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AlloVir. "There is an increasing body of evidence about the important role of T cells in the body's fight against COVID-19. At AlloVir, together with our colleagues at Baylor College of Medicine, we are working with a great sense of urgency to leverage our highly innovative virus-specific T-cell platform to advance ALVR109 into a proof-of-concept study in high-risk COVID-19 patients."

    Early research suggests that T cells play an important role in the body's fight against COVID-19. Over 80% of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 are lymphopenic, with reduced CD8+ and CD4+ T cell counts. These reductions in T cell counts correlate negatively with survival. Reduced T cell counts have been observed to be prevalent in older COVID-19 patients and those with severe illness, regardless of age.

    On March 23, 2020, AlloVir announced it expanded its research collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) to discover and develop allogeneic, off-the-shelf, virus-specific T-cell therapies for COVID-19. Following the submission of the IND for ALVR109 by BCM, the FDA notified BCM of a clinical hold due to questions related to raw materials used in the manufacturing process for ALVR109. BCM submitted a complete response to the questions identified in the clinical hold and the FDA has removed the hold allowing the clinical study to start.
