  1.

    Third Quarter Highlights:

    • In July 2021, the Company released top line Phase 2 clinical trial results from its development partner, Newsoara, that showed a 1.1-day improvement in GI recovery in patients receiving LB1148 vs placebo.

    CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Palisade Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ:PALI) ("Palisade" or the "Company"), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company advancing oral therapies that help patients with acute and chronic gastrointestinal (GI) complications, today provides a business update and releases its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

    Third Quarter Highlights:

    • In July 2021, the Company released top line Phase 2 clinical trial results from its development partner, Newsoara, that showed a 1.1-day improvement in GI recovery in patients receiving LB1148 vs placebo.



    • In July 2021, the Company entered a worldwide exclusive license with the University of California to patent rights covering certain engineered substrates and use in measuring degradative enzymes for disease conditions, including cancer.



    • In August 2021, Yuma Regional Medical Center made a private investment of $5.2 million to help advance clinical development of LB1148.

    Financial Summary:

    • Research and development expenses increased from $412,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, to $624,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, primarily attributable to an increase in clinical trial activities as non-essential surgical procedures, which were virtually halted following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, have begun to return to pre-pandemic levels resulting in more patients enrolled in our clinical trial. The increase was offset partially by a decrease in share-based compensation expense.
    • General and administrative expenses increased from $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, to $2.4 million for the same period of 2021, primarily related to an increase in other general and administrative expenses associated with operating as a public company, including accounting and legal costs, offset partially by a decrease in share-based compensation expense.
    • Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021, was $14.1 million, while outstanding debt was $568,000.

    "The positive results from the Phase 2 study demonstrated that LB1148 accelerated return to bowel function in patients undergoing GI surgery compared to placebo. We're excited about the read outs of these Phase 2 data as they guide us towards a pathway for late-stage protocols," stated Tom Hallam, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Palisade Bio. "Additionally, we are initiating studies based on technology under the UC license to measure blood protease activity in defined patient groups, with the goal of identifying new biomarkers and therapeutic targets to build our pipeline."

    Recent Corporate Highlights:

    • Announced positive topline results from Phase 2 study of LB1148 by partner Newsoara demonstrating accelerated return of bowel function after gastrointestinal surgery

    • Entered into worldwide in-licensing agreement with University of California for technology to support target identification, drug discovery, and clinical development

    • Launched a Clinical Steering Committee to provide strategic guidance over late-stage clinical program development for its lead investigational drug LB1148

    • Hosted a key opinion leader (KOL) webinar on LB1148 with Drs. Steven Wexner, M.D., Cleveland Clinic and Mark A. Talamini, M.D., Northwell Health

    • Received FDA Fast Track Designation for LB1148 for reduction of adhesions following abdominal and pelvic surgery

    • Closed a $5.2M private investment by the Yuma Regional Medical Center to help advance clinical development of LB1148

    Financial Summary:

    • R&D expenses declined from $650,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 to $314,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to higher trailing enrollment in the prior period before the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as due to a general decrease in personnel-related costs and stock-based compensation in the current period.
    • General and administrative expenses increased from $1.2 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2020 to $2.4 million in the same period of 2021, primarily due to increased compensation and stock compensation expenses, as well as other general and administrative expenses associated with operating as a public company.
    • In-process R&D for the quarter ended 2021 was $30.1 million, as compared to $0 in the same period of 2020, and reflects the allocation of the merger price to in-process R&D projects acquired with no alternative future use.
    • Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2021 was $12.7 million, while outstanding debt was $1.1 million.  

    "The recently announced topline Phase 2 data with our partner Newsoara showing LB1148 brought an accelerated return to bowel function in patients following surgery is yet another building block in our efforts to get LB1148 approved for GI treatments. Across our trials to date in both animals and humans, there is a consistent theme that the drug is both safe and effective in accelerating return of bowel function," stated Tom Hallam, Ph.D., President and CEO of Palisade Bio. "Assuming positive future clinical results that are consistent with our trials to date, we see pathways to regulatory approval for LB1148. Moreover, we expect to build a pipeline of therapies based on our recently announced license agreement with the Regents of the University of California. We are now diligently planning our next strategic activities and look forward to providing additional investor updates as our corporate and clinical progress unfolds."

    CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Palisade Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ:PALI) ("Palisade Bio" or the "Company"), a late‐stage biopharma company advancing therapies for acute and chronic gastrointestinal (GI) complications, today announces a new private investment of approximately $5.2 million from the Yuma Regional Medical Center ("YRMC"), an Arizona‐based, not‐for‐profit hospital providing high‐quality, patient‐centered care. The funds will be used to advance the clinical development of Palisade's lead oral liquid drug candidate LB1148, which is being developed to accelerate the return of bowel function after surgery and to reduce post‐surgical adhesions.

    "There are almost seven million surgeries each year in the United States where patients may benefit from LB1148. The surgical community is still looking for safe therapeutics to improve postoperative bowel function and reduce abdominal adhesions," said Tom Hallam, Ph.D., CEO of Palisade Bio. "If approved, LB1148 may provide an easy‐to‐adopt solution to help surgical patients return to GI normalcy faster and help these patients spend less time in the hospital. Investments from end‐users like YRMC help validate the excitement for this treatment and its potential impact on patient lives."

    Under the terms of the agreement, YRMC purchased 1,509,896 unregistered common shares at a purchase price of $3.45 per share. In addition, YRMC received a five‐year warrant to purchase an additional 377,474 common shares at $3.45 per share. The Company is required to register the common shares and the shares underlying the warrants within 60 days.

    Dr. Bob Trenschel, D.O., M.P.H., Yuma Regional Medical Center's President and CEO added, "With the recent announcement of positive topline Phase 2 data, we are encouraged by the prospects that LB1148 presents to patients, caregivers, and hospitals as a simple and effective way to accelerate GI recovery after surgery. Delayed postsurgical recovery can affect quality of life and increase healthcare costs. As LB1148 has consistently been shown to accelerate the return of GI function in clinical studies with a favorable safety profile, we believe LB1148 may one day be the standard of care for patients undergoing major surgery. This investment is a continuation of our long‐standing dedication to clinical research. Our support of Palisade Bio is a testament to a shared commitment to advancing care for patients as the company brings forth new treatment through clinical development."

    About LB1148

    LB1148 is an oral formulation of a broad‐spectrum serine protease inhibitor designed to neutralize the activity of potent digestive proteases released from the gut during surgery. Evidence suggests that the release of digestive proteases contributes to the temporary loss of normal gastrointestinal function and formation of postoperative adhesions. By inhibiting the activity of these digestive proteases, LB1148 has the potential to prevent damage to GI tissues, accelerate the time to return of normal GI function, and shorten the duration of costly post‐ surgery hospital stays.

    About Palisade Bio, Inc.

    Palisade Bio is a late‐stage biopharma company advancing therapies that help patients with acute and chronic gastrointestinal complications stemming from post‐operative digestive enzyme damage. Palisade Bio's innovative lead asset, LB1148, is a Phase 3‐ready protease inhibitor with the potential to both reduce abdominal adhesions and help restore bowel function following surgery. Positive data from two Phase 2 trials of LB1148 demonstrated safety and tolerability as well as a statistically significant improvement in return to bowel function and decrease in length of stay in ICU and hospital compared to placebo. Palisade Bio believes that its investigational therapies have the potential to address the myriad health conditions and complications associated with chronic disruption of the gastrointestinal epithelial barrier.
