    Top-line Data Readout Remains on Track for Late Q2 2020

    Tenax Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:TENX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on identifying, developing and commercializing products that address cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases with high unmet medical need, today announced that the last patient has completed their final visit in the Company's Phase 2 clinical trial of levosimendan in patients with pulmonary hypertension and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (PH-HFpEF). The study is also known as the HELP Study (Hemodynamic Evaluation of Levosimendan in Patients with PH-HFpEF).

    • The 36-subject clinical trial began enrollment in late March 2019 and patients were randomized in 10 hospitals across the U.S.
    • Trial finalization leading to data lock and top-line data readout has now begun.
    • Top-line data readout remains on track for late June 2020

    PH-HFpEF represents an area of very high unmet medical need. PH-HFpEF patients suffer from increased mortality as well as a reduced quality of life. No approved or effective therapies currently exist to treat the many patients who suffer with PH-HFpEF.

    Tenax CEO Tony Di Tonno stated: "We are thankful for the dedicated physicians, study coordinators and home health providers who were able to close out our study with minimal disruption from the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis. We are continuing to work very closely with everyone involved in collecting and finalizing the data required to report top line data before the end of the second quarter."

    Dr. Stuart Rich, Director of the Pulmonary Vascular Disease Program at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute at Northwestern University stated, "As a principal investigator who helped to design and execute the HELP Study, I am eagerly looking forward to seeing the results of the HELP Study. Based on the remarkably favorable response reported by investigators during the open label pre-randomization phase of the trial, I am hopeful the results of the randomized double-blind phase of the trial will demonstrate that levosimendan could represent a breakthrough therapy for PH-HFpEF patients."

    About Phase 2 HELP Study

    The HELP Study is a multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trial designed to evaluate levosimendan in patients with pulmonary hypertension and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (PH-HFpEF).

    Initial Response

    The trial has a predefined response criterion that patients must meet following a 24-hour open-label infusion of levosimendan before they can be randomized to the 6-week double-blind phase of the trial. The criterion for randomization was a reduction in PCWP during supine exercise of ≥ 4mmHg following the open-label infusion when compared with each patient's baseline exercise PCWP. 37 of 44 patients, approximately 84%, achieved this predefined responder criterion. Investigator reported invasive exercise hemodynamic measurements from 35 evaluable patients showed statistically significant improvements during the open-label lead-in phase when compared to baseline, including an average reduction of 7.8 mmHg PCWP, an average reduction in pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) of 4.8mmHg, an average reduction in right atrial pressure (RAP) of 5.3 mmHg, and an average increase in cardiac output (CO) of 0.4 liters/min. All of these open-label lead-in phase hemodynamic improvements, with the exception of cardiac output, achieved statistical significance (P≤0.001, paired t-Test).

    Adverse Events

    There have been no drug-related serious adverse events, and only 2 patients did not complete the 6 week study. All of the patients who completed the 6-week double-blind phase of the trial have elected to enroll in the open-label extension study.

    Tenax Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:TENX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on identifying, developing and commercializing products that address cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases with high unmet medical need, today announced that it has completed enrollment of their Phase 2 clinical trial of levosimendan.

    The multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial is designed to evaluate levosimendan in patients with pulmonary hypertension and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (PH-HFpEF). The study is also known as the HELP Trial (Hemodynamic Evaluation of Levosimendan in Patients with PH-HFpEF). The primary endpoint is the change from baseline Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) with bicycle exercise (25Watts) at week 6 following five weekly infusions of levosimendan post randomization. There is an 80% power to detect a ≥ 4.8 mmHg reduction in PCWP from baseline. The Company expects to report top-line data in the second quarter 2020.

    "We are delighted that enrollment has been completed in this Phase 2 trial and anticipate top line data to be reported during the second quarter 2020 following the completion of dosing and data analysis," stated Anthony DiTonno, CEO of Tenax Therapeutics. "Pulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease represents a significant unmet medical need given the lack of effective therapies for over an estimated two million patients in the US. Levosimendan with its triple mechanism of action has the potential to represent a breakthrough treatment option for these patients."

    Initial Response

    The trial has a predefined response criterion that patients must meet following a 24-hour open-label infusion of levosimendan before they can be randomized to the 6-week double-blind phase of the trial. The criterion for randomization is a reduction in PCWP during supine exercise of 4mmHg following the open-label infusion when compared with each patient's baseline exercise PCWP. 37 of 44 patients who received the open-label lead in infusion, approximately 84%, achieved this predefined responder criterion.

    Invasive exercise hemodynamic measurements from the first 30 evaluable patients showed statistically significant improvements during the open-label lead-in phase when compared to baseline, including an average reduction in pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) of 7.5 mmHg , an average reduction in pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) of 5.1 mmHg, an average reduction in right atrial pressure (RAP) of 5.0 mmHg, and an average increase in cardiac output (CO) of 0.6 liters/min. All of these open-label lead-in phase hemodynamic improvements achieved statistical significance (p≤0.01, paired t-Test)

    Adverse Events

    There have been no drug-related serious adverse events, and only 1 patient has withdrawn from the study prior to completing the 6-week double-blind phase of the trial . All of the patients who have completed the 6-week double-blind phase of the trial have elected to enroll in the open-label extension study.
