The ‘214 patent expires in 2037.

    "We are gratified by the PTAB's decision," said Joseph K. Belanoff, MD, Corcept's Chief Executive Officer. "The ‘214 patent is directed to an important medical discovery – that, with dose-adjustment as set forth in its FDA-approved label, Korlym® can be safely co-administered with medications known as strong CYP3A inhibitors, including commonly-prescribed antiviral, antibiotic, antifungal and antidepressant medications. Patients with Cushing's syndrome often experience significant co-morbidities. We are glad that our research has increased the array of medications available to the physicians who treat them."

    Hypercortisolism

    Hypercortisolism, often referred to as Cushing's syndrome, is caused by excessive activity of the hormone cortisol. Endogenous Cushing's syndrome is an orphan disease that most often affects adults aged 20-50. In the United States, an estimated 20,000 patients have Cushing's syndrome, with about 3,000 new patients diagnosed each year. Symptoms vary, but most patients experience one or more of the following manifestations: high blood sugar, diabetes, high blood pressure, upper-body obesity, rounded face, increased fat around the neck, thinning arms and legs, severe fatigue and weak muscles. Irritability, anxiety, cognitive disturbances and depression are also common. Hypercortisolism can affect every organ system in the body and can be lethal if not treated effectively.

  3. MENLO PARK, Calif., Nov. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated (NASDAQ:CORT), a commercial-stage company engaged in the discovery and development of drugs to treat severe metabolic, oncologic and psychiatric disorders by modulating the effects of the stress hormone cortisol, today reported its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

    Financial Highlights

    • Revenue of $86.3 million, a 6 percent increase from third quarter 2019
    • GAAP diluted net income of $0.17 per share, compared to $0.22 per share in third quarter 2019
    • Non-GAAP diluted net income of $0.24 per share, compared to $0.31 per share in third quarter 2019
    • Cash and investments of $444.2 million, compared to $409.6 million at June 30, 2020
    • Announcement

    MENLO PARK, Calif., Nov. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated (NASDAQ:CORT), a commercial-stage company engaged in the discovery and development of drugs to treat severe metabolic, oncologic and psychiatric disorders by modulating the effects of the stress hormone cortisol, today reported its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

    Financial Highlights

    • Revenue of $86.3 million, a 6 percent increase from third quarter 2019
    • GAAP diluted net income of $0.17 per share, compared to $0.22 per share in third quarter 2019
    • Non-GAAP diluted net income of $0.24 per share, compared to $0.31 per share in third quarter 2019
    • Cash and investments of $444.2 million, compared to $409.6 million at June 30, 2020
    • Announcement of $200 million stock repurchase program
    • 2020 revenue guidance narrowed to $355 – 365 million

    Revenue was $86.3 million in the third quarter, compared to $81.5 million in the third quarter of 2019.  Third quarter GAAP net income was $21.6 million, compared to $26.3 million in the same period last year.  Excluding non-cash expenses related to stock-based compensation and the utilization of deferred tax assets, together with related income tax effects, non-GAAP net income in the third quarter was $30.0 million, compared to $37.8 million in the third quarter of 2019.  A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income is included below.

    Corcept narrowed its 2020 revenue guidance range to $355 – 365 million.  The company's initial guidance, announced in January 2020, was $355 – 375 million.

    Third quarter operating expenses were $61.6 million, compared to $48.5 million in the third quarter of 2019, primarily due to increased spending on clinical trials in Cushing's syndrome, antipsychotic-induced weight gain and solid tumors, and on the formulation and manufacture the company's proprietary selective cortisol modulators.

    Cash and investments were $444.2 million at September 30, 2020, an increase of $34.7 million from June 30, 2020.

    The company announced a program to repurchase up to $200 million of its common stock, funded using cash and investments. Details of the program are provided below.

    "While pandemic-related public health restrictions and related changes in physician and patient practices dampened our third quarter commercial results," said Joseph K. Belanoff, MD, Corcept's Chief Executive Officer, "we have built a remarkably stable and profitable business.  After Covid-19 is brought under control, we expect our growth to resume.

    "Meanwhile, the breadth of our clinical development program continues to increase.  We are now evaluating our proprietary, selective cortisol modulators in patients with Cushing's syndrome, four different types of solid tumors, antipsychotic-induced weight gain (APIWG) and – starting this month – nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).  The pandemic's effect on these trials has varied," added Dr. Belanoff.  "Studies of illnesses which are acutely life-threatening, including advanced ovarian and pancreatic cancer have recruited briskly.  Studies of illnesses that are not perceived as immediately dire – such as antipsychotic-induced weight gain – have lagged."

    Cushing's Syndrome

    • Phase 3 GRACE trial of relacorilant in patients with any etiology of Cushing's syndrome continues at sites in the United States, Canada, Europe and Israel; NDA submission planned for second quarter 2022
    • Enrollment begun in Phase 3 GRADIENT trial of relacorilant in patients with Cushing's syndrome of adrenal origin continues, with sites planned in the United States, Europe and Israel

    "We are evaluating our proprietary selective cortisol modulator relacorilant as a treatment for Cushing's syndrome in two double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trials," said Andreas Grauer, MD, Corcept's Chief Medical Officer.  "GRACE has a planned enrollment of 130 patients with any type of Cushing's syndrome.  GRADIENT has a planned enrollment of 130 patients with Cushing's syndrome caused by adrenal adenomas – an etiology of hypercortisolism where medical treatment has not been rigorously studied. While recruitment in both trials has slowed due to the pandemic, our investigators are enthusiastic.  We plan to submit an NDA based on results from the GRACE trial in the second quarter of 2022."

    Solid Tumors

    • Enrollment complete in 178-patient, controlled, Phase 2 trial of relacorilant plus nab-paclitaxel in patients with metastatic ovarian cancer; results expected in first half 2021
    • Enrollment continues in 80-patient, open-label Phase 3 RELIANT trial of relacorilant plus nab-paclitaxel in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer; results in first 40 patients expected in first half 2021
    • Selection of optimum dose of exicorilant plus enzalutamide in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer expected in first quarter 2021
    • Initiation of 20-patient, open-label, Phase 1b trial of relacorilant plus PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor pembrolizumab in patients with adrenal cancer with cortisol excess

    "Our oncology program is evaluating three mechanisms by which cortisol modulators may benefit patients with solid tumors," said Dr. Grauer.  "Our Phase 2 trial in patients with metastatic ovarian cancer and our Phase 3 trial in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer are evaluating whether relacorilant can enhance the efficacy of nab-paclitaxel by reducing cortisol's suppression of apoptosis – the programmed cell death chemotherapy is meant to promote.  We expect results from both of these trials in the first half of next year. 

    "In the first quarter of 2021, we expect to select a dosing regimen for our selective cortisol modulator exicorilant to advance as a treatment for castration-resistant prostate cancer.  Androgen deprivation therapy is the standard treatment for this disease.  However, with time, many tumors treated with androgen deprivation therapy switch to cortisol stimulation as the pathway to growth. Our hypothesis, which is well-supported in pre-clinical models, is that a regimen that combines an androgen receptor antagonist such as enzalutamide with a cortisol modulator will close off this tumor escape route.

    "Finally, our recently initiated Phase 1b trial of relacorilant combined with pembrolizumab is testing whether co-administrating a cortisol modulator can help immunotherapy achieve its intended effect by reducing cortisol-activated immune suppression." 

    Metabolic Diseases

    • Enrollment begun in GRATITUDE II, a 150-patient, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial of miricorilant to reverse long-standing APIWG
    • Enrollment continues in GRATITUDE, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 2 trial of miricorilant to reverse recent APIWG
    • Double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial of miricorilant in patients with NASH starting this month

    "In the third quarter, we opened GRATITUDE II, the second Phase 2 trial of our selective cortisol modulator miricorilant in patients with antipsychotic-induced weight gain – a life-threatening disorder experienced by many of the millions of patients who take antipsychotic medications," said Dr. Grauer.  "GRATITUDE II is enrolling patients with long-standing weight gain.  Its sister trial, GRATITUDE is enrolling patients with recent weight gain.

    "These trials follow promising pre-clinical and clinical data.  For example, in the Phase 1b trial we completed earlier this year, healthy volunteers given miricorilant plus olanzapine gained less weight and had lower triglycerides and less sharply elevated liver enzymes than those who received olanzapine plus placebo after only two weeks of dosing.

    "Finally, we plan to begin evaluating miricorilant as a potential treatment for liver disease.  Extensive pre-clinical data suggests miricorilant may benefit patients with NASH, a serious liver disorder that affects millions of patients," added Dr. Grauer.  "We are on-track to open a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of miricorilant in patients with NASH by year-end."

    GAAP Measures of Net Income

    To supplement our financial results presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures of net income, basic net income per share and diluted net income per share that exclude the following non-cash expenses –  (i) stock-based compensation, (ii) our use of deferred tax assets to offset current tax expense and (iii) related income tax effects. We believe these non-GAAP measures help investors evaluate our financial performance and potential future results. Our non-GAAP measures may be different from, and not directly comparable to, those used by other companies. They are not a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should not be considered in isolation. Investors should read our non-GAAP presentation in conjunction with our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

  5.

    MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated (NASDAQ:CORT), a commercial-stage company engaged in the discovery and development of drugs to treat severe metabolic, oncologic and psychiatric disorders by modulating the effects of cortisol, today announced enrollment of its first patient in GRATITUDE II, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 2 trial of miricorilant in obese patients with schizophrenia and long-standing antipsychotic-induced weight gain (APIWG).

    GRATITUDE II has a planned enrollment of 150 patients, who will continue to receive their established dose of antipsychotic medication, plus either 600 milligrams of miricorilant, 900 milligrams of miricorilant or placebo, for 26 weeks. The primary endpoint is reduction in bodyweight. GRATITUDE II will be conducted at 35 centers in the United States.

    GRATITUDE I, Corcept's first Phase 2 trial of miricorilant in APIWG, continues to enroll patients with schizophrenia and recent weight gain. Patients in GRATITUDE I receive, in addition to their established antipsychotic regimen, either 600 milligrams of miricorilant or placebo for 12 weeks. The primary endpoint is change in bodyweight.

    "Substantial, sustained weight gain and associated metabolic co-morbidities shorten the lives of many of the millions of patients who take antipsychotic medications and significantly reduce quality of life for many more," said Andreas Grauer, MD, Corcept's Chief Medical Officer. "Miricorilant has demonstrated promise as a potential treatment for this disorder.1 In our double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 1b trial, after just two weeks of treatment, healthy subjects given miricorilant in addition to olanzapine gained significantly less weight than subjects who received olanzapine plus placebo. Patients receiving miricorilant also experienced smaller increases in the enzymes AST and ALT, which suggests miricorilant may help protect the liver. We hope to confirm and extend our Phase 1b results in GRATITUDE II, which is using an improved formulation of miricorilant and a longer treatment duration."
