    About Applied Molecular Transport Inc.

    Applied Molecular Transport Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company leveraging its proprietary technology platform to design and develop a pipeline of novel oral biologic product candidates to treat autoimmune, inflammatory, metabolic, and other diseases. AMT's proprietary technology platform allows it to exploit existing natural cellular trafficking pathways to facilitate the active transport of diverse therapeutic modalities across the intestinal epithelial (IE) barrier. Active transport is an efficient mechanism that uses the cell's own machinery to transport materials across the IE barrier. AMT believes that its ability to exploit this mechanism is a key differentiator of its approach. AMT is developing additional oral biologic product candidates in patient-friendly oral forms that are designed to either target local gastrointestinal tissue or enter systemic circulation to precisely address the relevant biology of a disease.

    SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Molecular Transport Inc. (NASDAQ:AMTI) (AMT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today provided a corporate update and reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

    "I recognize the commitment of the AMT team as we drive towards significant milestones over the next 12 months," said Tahir Mahmood, Ph.D., chief executive officer and co-founder of AMT. "We are excited about the broad potential of our two product candidates, AMT-101 and AMT-126, for treating intestinal and systemic inflammatory indications and other diseases."

    Recent Business Highlights and Anticipated Milestones

    • Hosted virtual Research & Development Day to highlight novel oral biologics technology platform, clinical programs and research activities
      • Announced new respiratory carrier technology and presented preclinical data on the approach
      • Featured distinguished IBD and rheumatology key opinion leaders
    • Actively enrolling and dosing in four Phase 2 trials for AMT-101, a GI-selective, oral IL-10 fusion:
      • MARKET combination trial of oral AMT-101 with anti-TNFα in biologic-naïve patients with moderate-to-severe UC; Top-line data readout in H1 2022
        • Following the Company's R&D Day event, the Company was notified of a potential imbalance in the trial's planned 1:1 randomization. Upon confirmation of the imbalance, the Company now anticipates increasing total enrollment from 30 patients to between 40 and 50 patients. The trial has been and continues to be blinded.
      • FILLMORE monotherapy trial for patients with chronic pouchitis; Top-line data readout in H1 2022
      • LOMBARD monotherapy trial for biologic-naïve and experienced patients with moderate-to-severe UC; Top-line data readout in H1 2022
      • CASTRO combination trial of oral AMT-101 with anti-TNFα for patients with RA who are partial or non-responders to anti-TNFα therapy; Top-line data readout in H2 2022
    • Enrollment ongoing in Phase 1 trial with AMT-126, a GI-selective, oral IL-22 fusion:
      • Phase 1 development plan includes healthy volunteers and patients
      • Broad potential in multiple indications in patients with impaired intestinal epithelial barrier function
      • Program update from oral AMT-126 in H1 2022

    • Presented additional positive data from oral AMT-101 Phase 1b multiple ascending dose trial in UC patients at the ECCO'21 Virtual Congress in July 2021

    Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2021

    Research and development (R&D) expenses. Total R&D expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $18.4 million, compared to $13.4 million for the same period in 2020. The overall increase was primarily related to an increase in expenses associated with compensation due to an increase in headcount, along with increases in facility related expenses, clinical trials, and materials, partially offset by a decrease in preclinical studies and contract manufacturing.

    General and administrative (G&A) expenses. Total G&A expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $7.6 million, compared to $3.4 million for the same period in 2020. The overall increase was primarily related to an increase of $3.0 million in personnel and administrative costs due to an increase in headcount and an increase of $1.0 million in professional fees.

    Net loss. Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $26.0 million, compared to $16.8 million for the same period in 2020.

    Cash, cash equivalents, and investments. As of September 30, 2021, cash, cash equivalents and investments were $182.5 million.

    About AMT-101

    AMT-101 is a novel GI-selective, oral fusion of hIL-10 and AMT's proprietary carrier molecule, currently in development in four Phase 2 clinical trials in inflammatory bowel diseases and rheumatoid arthritis. AMT-101 is designed to cross the intestinal epithelial (IE) barrier with limited entry into the bloodstream, thereby focusing hIL-10 at the primary site of inflammation for UC and potentially avoiding the side effects observed with systemic administration. By design, AMT-101 is actively transported through the IE barrier into the GI tissue, the primary site of inflammation in UC.

    About AMT-126

    AMT-126 is a novel GI-selective, oral fusion of hIL-22 and AMT's proprietary carrier molecule currently in development for diseases related to IE barrier defects. IL-22 is a cytokine that repairs structural and functional defects of the IE barrier and induces microbial defense. AMT-126 is designed to act locally on the epithelial cells of the intestinal tissue, thereby repairing the IE barrier and supporting mucosal healing, potentially translating into clinically meaningful improvements in a broad range of GI-focused, peripheral inflammatory and other diseases.
