    PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Passage Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ:PASG), a clinical-stage genetic medicines company focused on developing transformative therapies for central nervous system disorders, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 and provided recent business highlights.

    "We ended the quarter well-positioned to deliver on multiple upcoming catalysts, including reporting first-in-human data from our Imagine-1 global Phase 1/2 trial for PBGM01 for the treatment of infantile GM1 gangliosidosis before the end of year," said Bruce Goldsmith, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Passage Bio. "We also have successfully activated multiple clinical sites and are continuously expanding our patient identification initiatives across each of our global clinical programs. This paves the way for us to continue to advance Imagine-1 and dose the first participants before year-end in our programs for Krabbe disease and frontotemporal dementia with granulin mutations.

    "As we close this year, we remain steadfastly focused on strong execution of our three clinical programs. Following the recent expansion of our strategic collaboration with University of Pennsylvania's Gene Therapy Program, we also continue to progress our robust genetic medicines pipeline targeting CNS disorders affecting both rare and large patient populations."

    Recent Highlights:

    • Advancing Imagine-1 global Phase 1/2 trial toward data readout for cohort one in fourth quarter of 2021: Data will include initial safety and 30-day biomarker data, specifically beta-galactosidase enzyme activity levels in serum and cerebrospinal fluid. The company also plans to disclose the Independent Data Monitoring Committee recommendation on progressing to the higher-dose late infantile and low-dose early infantile GM1 patient cohorts.
    • Activated multiple clinical sites across three global clinical programs, despite Covid-19 headwinds: This accomplishment, along with a variety of patient identification initiatives, paves the way for first participants to be dosed in global phase 1/2 clinical trials upliFT-D for PBFT02 in frontotemporal dementia with granulin mutations and GALax-C for PBKR03 in Krabbe disease by the end of the fourth quarter 2021. The company plans to report initial safety and 30-day biomarker data for both trials in the first half of 2022.
    • Appointed Maxine Gowen, Ph.D., as chairwoman of the board of directors in August 2021: This appointment followed the unexpected passing of Passage Bio co-founder and former board chair Dr. Tadataka Yamada. Dr. Gowen is an accomplished biopharmaceutical executive who has deep operational and research and development experience and has been a member of Passage Bio's board since February 2021.

    Anticipated Upcoming Milestones

    • Report initial safety and 30-day biomarker data from cohort one of Imagine-1 global Phase 1/2 PBGM01 trial in 4Q21.
    • Dose first participant in upliFT-D Phase 1/2 FTD-GRN trial in 4Q21; report initial safety and 30-day biomarker data for cohort one in 1H22.
    • Dose first participant in GALax-C Phase 1/2 Krabbe trial in 4Q21; report initial safety and 30-day biomarker data for cohort one in 1H22.
    • Continue to advance preclinical programs for PBML04 (Metachromatic leukodystrophy), PBLA05 (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and PBCM06 (Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 2A), and an undisclosed adult CNS program.
    • Continue to advance target identification research programs for Alzheimer's Disease and Temporal Lobe Epilepsy.

    Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

    • Cash Position: Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $354.4 million as of September 30, 2021 as compared to $304.8 million as of December 31, 2020. The Company expects current cash and cash equivalents to fund operations for at least the next 24 months.
    • Research and Development (R&D) Expenses: R&D expenses were $26.6 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $20.8 million for the same quarter in 2020. Acquired in-process R&D expenses were $5.5 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, primarily due to our expanded collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania's Gene Therapy Program to advance genetic medicines for large CNS diseases, compared to zero expenses in the same quarter of 2020.
    • General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses: G&A expenses were $15.0 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $7.8 million for the same quarter in 2020. 
    • Net Loss: Net loss was $46.9 million, or a net loss of $0.87 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 compared to $28.5 million, or a net loss of $0.63 per basic and diluted share, for the same quarter in 2020.
