08:01 EDTGALTGalectin Therapeutics presents preclinical data on GR-MD-02
Galectin Therapeutics presented new preclinical data on the mechanism of action of GR-MD-02 at the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. GR-MD-02 is the Company’s lead galectin inhibitor in development for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, or fatty liver disease. These new data help to further explain the mechanism of action of GR-MD-02, showing that this galectin inhibitor affects multiple pathways involved with both the prevention and reversal of fibrosis in NASH pathology. The new data show that Galectin-3 protein expression was markedly increased in animals with NASH, and those levels were dramatically reduced to barely detectable levels following treatment with GR-MD-02. Elevated expression of iNOS, an important inflammatory mediator, and CD36, a scavenger receptor involved in the pathogenesis of NASH, were markedly reduced following treatment with GR-MD-02.

10:21 EDTGALTGalectin Therapeutics announces first patient dosed in GR-MD-02 trial
Galectin Therapeutics announced that the first patient in cohort 2 of its Phase 1 clinical trial of GR-MD-02 in patients with NASH with advanced fibrosis has been successfully dosed with 4 mg/kg, which is double the dose given in cohort 1. Cohort 2, as with all phases of the clinical trial, was initiated in full compliance with the rules, regulations, and specific conditions set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for this Phase 1 clinical trial. The second cohort follows highly successful results from the first cohort showing that 2 mg/kg was safe and very well tolerated, and that GR-MD-02 treatment resulted in significant improvement in multiple biomarkers of fibrosis and liver inflammation in patients with NASH with advanced fibrosis. The remaining patients in cohort 2 are expected to be enrolled over the next few weeks and we anticipate reporting the results of cohort 2 around the end of July.
