Adagio Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results
$532.2 Million in Total Cash at Quarter End; Strong Balance Sheet Expected to Support Operations into Second Half of 2024
Additional Data from Adintrevimab Phase 2/3 STAMP Treatment Trial to be Presented at ASM Annual Meeting
WALTHAM, Mass., May 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adagio Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADGI), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of antibody-based solutions for infectious diseases, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
“We continue to be encouraged by adintrevimab’s potential as a prophylactic and treatment option for certain variants of SARS-CoV-2, which is supported by the positive data that met all primary endpoints from our global EVADE and STAMP trials. We continue to engage with the FDA and are closely monitoring the evolution of the virus and the in vitro activity of adintrevimab against predominant variants in the U.S. to determine the optimal timing for an EUA request,” said David Hering, interim chief executive officer and chief operating officer of Adagio. “Our efforts to improve antibody activity to the Omicron variant are ongoing, including modifications to adintrevimab and exploring higher doses in our Phase 1 trial. Additionally, we are advancing efforts to develop next generation monoclonal antibodies and move appropriate candidate(s) into preclinical testing. With capital to fuel our operations into the second half of 2024, we are confident in the road ahead for both Adagio and adintrevimab as we aim to bring differentiated antibody solutions forward for infectious diseases.”
Publication in Science Immunology
Research conducted by Adagio’s chief scientific officer, among others, was recently published online in Science Immunology. The publication, entitled “Recall of pre-existing cross-reactive B cell memory following Omicron BA.1 breakthrough infection,” is the first to describe the antibody response induced by Omicron breakthrough infection in molecular detail.
Upcoming Oral Data Presentation
Adagio plans to present additional data from its global Phase 2/3 STAMP COVID-19 treatment trial of adintrevimab at the American Society for Microbiology annual meeting taking place June 9-13, 2022, in Washington D.C. Details of the oral presentation are as follows:
- Title: Preliminary Results from the Phase 2/3 Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Adintrevimab in the Treatment of Ambulatory Participants with Mild or Moderate COVID-19 (STAMP)
- Date & Time: Saturday, June 11, 2022, between 9:15-10:05 a.m. ET
First Quarter 2022 Financial Results
- Cash Position: Cash and cash equivalents were $532.2 million as of March 31, 2022.
- Cash Runway: Based on current operating plans, Adagio expects its existing total cash and cash equivalents will enable the company to fund its operating expenses into the second half of 2024.
- Research & Development (R&D) Expenses: R&D expenses were $92.0 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $34.0 million for the comparable period of 2021. These increases are attributable to manufacturing validation and supply activities and ongoing clinical trial expenses.
- Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) Expenses: SG&A expenses were $8.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $3.7 million for the comparable period of 2021. These increases are attributable to higher expenses due to public company costs and personnel.
- Net Loss and Net Loss per Share: Net loss was $100.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $38.7 million for the comparable period in 2021. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.93 for the first quarter of 2022.
Adintrevimab (ADG20), Adagio’s lead product candidate, is designed to be a potent, broadly neutralizing antibody for both the prevention and treatment of COVID-19, including disease caused by most variants. Adintrevimab is being assessed in two separate Phase 2/3 clinical trials: the EVADE trial for the prevention of COVID-19 in both the post-exposure and pre-exposure settings, and the STAMP trial for the treatment of COVID-19. Preliminary data from these trials demonstrated that in the pre-Omicron population, adintrevimab met the primary endpoints across all three indications, demonstrating statistically significant and clinically meaningful efficacy. Across each of the trials, intramuscular (IM) administration of adintrevimab at the 300mg dose had a similar safety profile to that of placebo. Adintrevimab is also being evaluated in a Phase 1 study to evaluate safety and pharmacokinetics at higher doses and, as of an interim data cut, no study drug related adverse events, serious adverse events, injection-site reactions or hypersensitivity reactions were reported across all dose levels evaluated. Adintrevimab is an investigational monoclonal antibody that is not approved for use in any country. The safety and efficacy of adintrevimab have not been established.
