    In February 2021, we voluntarily paused dosing in our clinical trials for IMVT-1401 due to elevated total cholesterol and LDL levels observed in patients treated with IMVT-1401. We have informed our regulators and investigators of this voluntary pause of dosing in ASCEND GO-2, a Phase 2b trial in Thyroid Eye Disease and ASCEND-WAIHA, a Phase 2 trial in Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia.

    In order to better characterize the observed lipid findings, we have begun to conduct a program-wide data review with input from external scientific experts. Our unblinded analysis of the data from ASCEND GO-2 trial remains ongoing. The full set of data is now being collected, quality-controlled and consolidated. In the open label ASCEND-WAIHA trial, we also plan to conduct an interim data review from participants in Cohort 1 (680 mg weekly) after similarly consolidating and quality-controlling the data. We expect to continue development of IMVT-1401 and plan to progress discussions with regulatory authorities to align on the next steps in its continued development. We expect to provide a further update on our current and future indications and timelines in the second quarter of calendar year 2021.

    Financial Highlights for Fiscal Third Quarter Ended December 31, 2020 

    R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses increased by $16.1 million, from $5.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019 to $21.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. This year-over-year increase was primarily due to an $8.9 million increase in contract manufacturing costs driven by the expansion of our clinical trial programs for the treatment of autoimmune disease, and $1.4 million and $0.9 million increases in costs related to clinical studies and clinical research, respectively, due to expansion of clinical trials.

    G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses increased by $4.4 million, from $6.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019 to $10.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to personnel-related costs (including stock-based compensation expense) resulting from higher headcount.

    Net Loss: Net loss was $31.8 million ($0.32 per common share) for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $11.3 million ($0.28 per common share) for the three months ended December 31, 2019.  Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 included $6.0 million and $1.4 million, respectively, related to non-cash stock-based compensation expense.

    Common Stock: As of December 31, 2020, there were 97,971,243 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

    Financial Highlights for Fiscal Nine Months Ended December 31, 2020 

    R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $50.0 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $33.8 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2019. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increases in contract manufacturing costs of $15.5 million driven by the expansion of clinical trial programs for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and costs related to non-clinical and clinical studies of $2.6 million. Other increases include higher personnel-related expenses (including stock-based compensation expense) due to higher headcount to support clinical operations and increased professional services.

    G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $29.2 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $11.8 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2019. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher stock-based compensation expense and higher personnel-related costs, both of which were due to higher headcount. Other increases include higher legal and professional fees to support our growth and operations as a public company.

    Net Loss: Net loss was $79.3 million ($0.94 per common share) for the nine months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $45.8 million ($1.16 per common share) for the nine months ended December 31, 2019.  Net loss for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 included $13.3 million and $5.1 million, respectively, related to non-cash stock-based compensation expense.

  2. NEW YORK, Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immunovant (NASDAQ:IMVT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on enabling normal lives for patients with autoimmune diseases, today announced a voluntary pause of dosing in its ongoing clinical trials for IMVT-1401.

    The Company has become aware of a physiological signal consisting of elevated total cholesterol and LDL levels in IMVT-1401-treated patients in ASCEND GO-2, a Phase 2b trial in Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). Cholesterol levels were not measured in prior clinical trials of IMVT-1401 in Myasthenia Gravis (MG) and in healthy subjects.

    NEW YORK, Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immunovant (NASDAQ:IMVT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on enabling normal lives for patients with autoimmune diseases, today announced a voluntary pause of dosing in its ongoing clinical trials for IMVT-1401.

    The Company has become aware of a physiological signal consisting of elevated total cholesterol and LDL levels in IMVT-1401-treated patients in ASCEND GO-2, a Phase 2b trial in Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). Cholesterol levels were not measured in prior clinical trials of IMVT-1401 in Myasthenia Gravis (MG) and in healthy subjects. Out of an abundance of caution, the Company has decided to voluntarily pause dosing in ongoing clinical studies in both TED and in Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia, in order to inform patients, investigators, and regulators as well as to modify the monitoring program.

    ASCEND GO-2 is a randomized, placebo-controlled trial in TED evaluating different doses, each given weekly for 12 weeks. In this study, cholesterol parameters are assessed at baseline, at twelve weeks, and at week 20 following eight weeks off drug. Based on preliminary, unblinded data from about 40 patients through week 12, mean LDL cholesterol at week 12 was increased by approximately 65% in the 680mg dose group, by approximately 40% in the 340mg dose group, and did not increase in the control group. Average HDL and triglyceride levels increased to a much lesser degree. For context, commercially available statins report a reduction in LDL cholesterol between 27-60%. At the twenty-week timepoint, average LDL levels had declined to baseline or lower in the 680mg dose group, in the 340mg dose group, and in the control group. No serious cardiovascular events have been reported to date in IMVT-1401 clinical trials.

    Harbour BioMed, the license holder for 1401 in Greater China, has informed Immunovant that based on their preliminary review of blinded data in their ongoing clinical studies in Chinese patients with MG and Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, similar increases in cholesterol have not been observed. The Company is not aware whether trials involving other anti-FcRn agents in development have performed detailed assessments of lipid parameters.

    The Company will work closely with regulators and scientific experts to characterize the detailed profile of these lipid changes and to understand the mechanism of these changes across indications. After discussion and agreement with regulators regarding protocol modifications, the Company intends to continue to pursue development of IMVT-1401.

    Immunovant will host a conference call on Tuesday, February 2 at 8:00am EST. Following prepared remarks, the call will include a live question-and-answer session for the investment community.

    "We plan to report results from the high-dose cohort of ASCEND WAIHA, an open-label Phase 2a clinical trial of IMVT-1401 in Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (WAIHA), in the first quarter of calendar year 2021.  We plan to report results from ASCEND GO-2, a Phase 2b clinical trial of IMVT-1401 in patients with Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), in the first half of calendar year 2021.  We also plan to announce three new indications for IMVT-1401 by August 2021," he added.

    Financial Highlights for Fiscal Second Quarter Ended September 30, 2020

    R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses increased by $1.7 million, from $10.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 to $12.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by higher costs related to expansion of ongoing clinical trials, initiation of a non-clinical study and additional professional services.

    G&A Expenses:  General and administrative expenses increased by $4.8 million, from $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 to $9.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher headcount, resulting in additional personnel costs and stock-based compensation expense.

    Net Loss: Net loss was $20.8 million ($0.25 per common share) for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $14.5 million ($0.38 per common share) for the three months ended September 30, 2019.  Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 included $3.4 million and $3.1 million, respectively, related to non-cash stock-based compensation expense.

    Common Stock: As of September 30, 2020, there were 97,890,705 shares of the common stock issued and outstanding.

    Financial Highlights for Fiscal Six Months Ended September 30, 2020

    R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $28.9 million for the six months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $28.8 million for the six months ended September 30, 2019. Expenses in 2019 included $10.0 million related to the achievement of the first development and regulatory milestone under Immunovant's license agreement with HanAll Biopharma Co., Ltd. Excluding the effects of this one-time milestone, research and development expenses increased by $10.1 million for the six months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the same period in the prior year. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increases in contract manufacturing costs and non-clinical and clinical studies, driven by the expansion of clinical trial programs for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. Other increases include higher personnel-related expenses (including stock-based compensation expense) due to higher headcount to support clinical operations and increased professional services.

    G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $18.7 million for the six months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $5.8 million for the six months ended September 30, 2019. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher stock-based compensation expense and higher personnel-related costs, both of which were due to higher headcount. Other increases include higher legal and professional fees to support our growth and operations as a public company.

    Net Loss: Net loss was $47.5 million ($0.61 per common share) for the six months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $34.5 million ($0.90 per common share) for the six months ended September 30, 2019.  Net loss for the six months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 included $7.4 million and $3.7 million, respectively, related to non-cash stock-based compensation expense.
