1. UNIONDALE, N.Y., June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angion Biomedica Corp. (NASDAQ:ANGN), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel small molecule therapeutics to address acute organ injuries and fibrotic diseases, today announced that its exploratory Phase 2 ALI-201 trial of ANG-3777 in patients with severe COVID-19 related pneumonia at high risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) did not meet the primary or secondary efficacy endpoints. The adverse events and overall safety of the trial were consistent with previously published reports in patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19 pneumonia.

    UNIONDALE, N.Y., June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angion Biomedica Corp. (NASDAQ:ANGN), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel small molecule therapeutics to address acute organ injuries and fibrotic diseases, today announced that its exploratory Phase 2 ALI-201 trial of ANG-3777 in patients with severe COVID-19 related pneumonia at high risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) did not meet the primary or secondary efficacy endpoints. The adverse events and overall safety of the trial were consistent with previously published reports in patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19 pneumonia.

    "The ALI-201 study sought to address a patient population severely ill with COVID-19, a multi-system inflammatory condition, which differs markedly from our prior and ongoing clinical trials of ANG-3777 related to transplantation and cardiovascular surgery where the acute kidney injury is a discrete event," stated Dr. John F. Neylan, Angion's Chief Medical Officer. "Patients in the ALI-201 trial had ongoing and accumulating injury from symptomatic COVID-19 on average 11 days before receiving drug with organ systems under continued attack from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In contrast, patients in our ongoing trials receive ANG-3777 within 1-3 days after the targeted organ injury. COVID-19 is a severe systemic disease presenting significant challenges to both new and previously approved therapeutics."

    "We were pleased to be part of the attempt to help patients severely ill with COVID-19 and extend our deepest gratitude to the patients, their families, investigators, and site staff who participated in this study," commented Dr. Jay R. Venkatesan, Angion's President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the increasing availability of approved COVID-19 vaccines and the widespread assumption vaccines will reduce infection rates around the world, we will not continue the development of this COVID-19 program. Based on the promising activity of ANG-3777 in multiple animal models of lung injury, we will continue to evaluate the clinical development of ANG-3777 for acute lung injury populations."

    The ALI-201 study was a small exploratory Phase 2 double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled trial conducted in Brazil to evaluate the safety and efficacy of four doses of ANG-3777 in the reduction of severity and progression of acute lung injury in patients with COVID-19 associated pneumonia who are at high risk of progressing to ARDS. The primary endpoint of the trial was survival free from the need for mechanical ventilation or dialysis at 28 days. The active arm of the trial did not show a statistically significant difference over the standard of care arm. A total of 120 patients were randomized 1:1 in the trial, with 59 patients in the active treatment arm and 61 patients in the standard of care arm.

    The number of adverse events, serious adverse events, and fatal events reported in ALI-201 were slightly higher for those subjects in the active treatment arm compared to those in the standard of care control arm, although no new or unexpected safety signals resulted from the trial. None of the fatal events in this trial of advanced COVID-19 patients were attributed by study investigators to either ANG-3777 or standard of care in the control arm.

    The company expects to report data from the ANG-3777 Phase 3 registration trial in transplant-associated acute kidney injury, also known as delayed graft function, by the end of 2021. The company also expects to report data from the ANG-3777 Phase 2 proof of-concept trial for the treatment of acute kidney injury associated with cardiac surgery involving cardiopulmonary bypass surgery in the second half of 2021.

    About ANG-3777

    ANG-3777 is a small molecule designed to mimic the biological activity of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), which activates the c-Met cascade of pathways involved in tissue repair and organ repair. ANG-3777 has a substantially longer half-life than HGF and Angion believes ANG-3777 has the potential to be a first-in-class therapeutic addressing acute organ injury. The ongoing clinical trials of ANG-3777 include a placebo-controlled Phase 3 registration trial in transplant-associated acute kidney injury, also known as delayed graft function and a Phase 2 proof of-concept trial for the treatment of acute kidney injury associated with cardiac surgery involving cardiopulmonary bypass surgery. In November 2020, Vifor Pharma and Angion signed a license agreement worth up to $1.9 billion in development, commercial, and sales milestones plus royalties on net sales of up to 40% for global rights outside Greater China to commercialize ANG-3777 in nephrology indications. Sinovant Sciences and Angion signed a development and licensing agreement for ANG-3777 in Greater China in 2018.

This indication is part of the ANG-3777 license agreement both parties signed in November 2020.

    "CSA-AKI is a frequent complication of cardiac bypass surgery seen in about one third of patients and is associated with prolonged hospitalization, progressive kidney failure, and an increased risk of death," commented Dr. John Neylan, Angion's Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer. "Currently, there are no approved therapies to prevent this serious condition. This phase-II prevention trial was designed to generate data on ANG-3777 in CSA-AKI patients to help guide future development of ANG-3777 in a phase-III registration trial for CSA-AKI. We are planning to start the confirmatory trial early in 2022, subject to the results of this phase-II trial as well as discussions with the FDA and other relevant health authorities."

    Dr. Klaus Henning Jensen, Chief Medical Officer of Vifor Pharma Group commented: "We are excited that enrollment in the AKI-002-15 phase-II trial has completed. This is an important milestone in a comprehensive clinical program to advance ANG-3777as a potential treatment option to prevent acute kidney injury following cardiac surgery, an indication with a high unmet medical need. Together with our partner Angion, we now look forward to assessing the results from the trial."

    The fully enrolled phase-II trial is a randomized, multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial with trial sites in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Georgia. Patients at risk for CSA-AKI were randomized one-to-one to receive four intravenous doses of 2.0 mg/kg of ANG-3777 or placebo over four days. The first dose was given within four hours of the completion of surgery with subsequent doses given at 24-hour intervals. The primary endpoint is mean area under the curve of the percent increase in serum creatinine above baseline, starting from 24 hours after the end of cardiopulmonary bypass surgery through day six. An additional important endpoint is the occurrence of Major Adverse Kidney Events at 90 days (MAKE 90), which has previously been agreed by the FDA as a suitable primary endpoint for a registration trial in this indication. A MAKE 90 "event" is death, initiation of renal replacement therapy or a greater than 25% decline in eGFR present 90 days after the surgery. The AKI-002-15 phase-II trial was designed as a signal-finding trial with the strategic objective to obtain sufficient evidence of efficacy of ANG-3777 to appropriately power and evaluate potential enrichment strategies for a phase-III registration trial.

    UNIONDALE, N.Y., March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angion Biomedica Corp. (NASDAQ:ANGN), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel small molecule therapeutics to address acute organ injuries and fibrotic diseases, today announced completion of enrollment for its ALI-201 study, a Phase 2 trial conducted in Brazil of ANG-3777 for the reduction of severity and progression of acute lung injury in patients with COVID-19 associated pneumonia who are at high risk of progressing to acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS.

    To be enrolled in the trial, subjects must have been admitted to the hospital with confirmed COVID-19 disease and either require non-invasive mechanical ventilation or have insufficient blood oxygen saturation while on high flow oxygen administration. The primary endpoint is survival free from the need for mechanical ventilation or dialysis at 28 days. This trial was powered in a manner where only a very substantial improvement in the primary endpoint will result in a statistically significant outcome.

    "We have preclinical data from a number of studies indicating ANG-3777 has activity in models of acute lung injury and ARDS," commented Dr. John Neylan, Angion's Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer. "This exploratory Phase 2 trial was designed to detect signals of activity for ANG-3777 in patients at high risk of ARDS in the context of COVID-19 related pneumonia. While powered only to detect a substantial improvement in the primary endpoint, we will evaluate the totality of the data for signals of efficacy and safety to help guide future development of ANG-3777 in conditions related to acute lung injury and ARDS."

Enrollment is complete in a placebo-controlled Phase 3 registration trial in transplant-associated acute kidney injury, also known as delayed graft function, and a Phase 2 exploratory trial in patients with acute lung injury associated with COVID-19 pneumonia. Enrollment is ongoing in a Phase 2 exploratory trial for the treatment of acute kidney injury associated with cardiac surgery involving cardiopulmonary bypass surgery. In November 2020, Vifor Pharma and Angion signed a license agreement for global rights outside Greater China to commercialize ANG-3777 in nephrology indications with up to $1.925 billion in development, commercial, and sales milestones plus royalties on net sales of up to 40%.
