South San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denali Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: DNLI), a biopharmaceutical company developing a broad portfolio of product candidates engineered to cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and lysosomal storage diseases, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, and provided business highlights. “In the first quarter, we continued to make significant progress across our broad therapeutic portfolio, including the advancement of multiple late-stage programs,” said Ryan Watts, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer at Denali. “As the global Phase 2/3 COMPASS study of DNL310 (ETV:IDS) enrolls children with MPS II, we were excited to share new interim, open-label Phase 1/2 data demonstrating positive changes in behavioral and cognitive aspects of the disease that are particularly important to MPS II families and data suggesting additional peripheral activity in children who switched from standard of care. In addition, at the recent AAN meeting, we reported positive biomarker and safety data from the 28-day Phase 1b study of our eIF2B agonist, DNL343, and we are eager to learn more about the potential of DNL343 from its planned inclusion in the Phase 2/3 HEALEY Platform Trial. We look forward to continued collaboration with individuals, families, and communities impacted by neurodegenerative and lysosomal storage diseases as we strive to discover, develop, and deliver safe and effective new medicines.” First Quarter and Recent Program Updates: TV-ENABLED PROGRAMS DNL310 (ETV:IDS): MPS II (Hunter syndrome) DNL310 is an investigational, intravenously administered, Enzyme Transport Vehicle (ETV)-enabled, brain-penetrant iduronate-2-sulfatase (IDS) replacement therapy designed to address the behavioral, cognitive and physical manifestations of MPS II (Hunter syndrome). In February, Denali reported new interim results at the WORLDSymposiumTM from the ongoing open-label, single-arm Phase 1/2 study of DNL310 in children with MPS II, including data from additional participants and up to 104 weeks of treatment. Over 49 weeks of DNL310 treatment, positive changes across measures of exploratory clinical outcomes including VABS-II (adaptive behavior) and BSID-III (cognitive capabilities) scores and global impression scales were observed. In addition, the interim data also suggested that DNL310 improved hearing, as assessed by auditory brainstem response testing. Additional biomarker data out to 49 weeks continued to demonstrate that DNL310 enabled rapid and sustained normalization of CSF heparan sulfate to normal healthy levels and improvement in lysosomal function biomarkers. Reduction in urine heparan sulfate and dermatan sulfate after switch from standard of care to DNL310 suggested additional sustained peripheral activity of DNL310. The safety profile of DNL310, with up to two years of treatment, remained consistent with standard of care. The interim Phase 1/2 data continue to suggest robust central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral activity of DNL310 and support continued recruitment of participants with MPS II, with and without neuronopathic disease, in the global Phase 2/3 COMPASS study. TAK-594/DNL593 (PTV:PGRN): Frontotemporal Dementia-Granulin (FTD-GRN) DNL593 is an investigational, intravenously administered, brain-penetrant progranulin (PGRN) replacement therapy enabled by Denali’s Protein Transport Vehicle (PTV) technology, which is being co-developed with Takeda. Recruitment of participants with symptomatic FTD-GRN loss of function mutations in Part B (ascending multiple doses) of the Phase 1/2 study is ongoing. In March 2023, a $10 million milestone payment from Takeda was triggered upon achievement of a specified clinical milestone in the Phase 1/2 study, which is due in May 2023. Additional healthy volunteer data from Part A of the Phase 1/2 study will be presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference, which is taking place July 16-20, 2023. TAK-920/DNL919 (ATV:TREM2): Alzheimer’s disease TAK-920/DNL919 is an investigational, Antibody Transport Vehicle (ATV)-enabled, brain-penetrant TREM2 agonist intended to improve microglial function as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, which is being co-developed with Takeda. A Phase 1 study of DNL919 in healthy volunteers is ongoing in the Netherlands. DNL126 (ETV:SGSH): MPS IIIA (Sanfilippo syndrome Type A) DNL126 (ETV:SGSH) is an investigational, intravenously administered, ETV-enabled, brain-penetrant N-sulfoglucosamine sulfohydrolase (SGSH) replacement therapy designed to address the behavioral, cognitive and physical manifestations of MPS IIIA (Sanfilippo syndrome Type A). In February, Denali presented preclinical data at the WORLDSymposium, which support plans to advance DNL126 into clinical development. Oligonucleotide Transport Vehicle (OTV) platform Denali’s OTV platform is designed to enable peripheral administration of oligonucleotide therapeutics such as antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) to address a wide range of neurodegenerative and other neurological diseases. Denali has selected five ASO targets for further development and is focused on advancing two OTV candidates towards clinical development. In April, the manuscript titled, “Targeting Transferrin Receptor to Transport Antisense Oligonucleotides Across the Blood-Brain Barrier” was posted on bioRxiv here . Antibody Transport Vehicle (ATV):Amyloid beta (ATV:Abeta) program ATV:Abeta is designed to increase brain exposure and target engagement of antibody therapeutics directed against Abeta, which may enable improved plaque clearance and/or reduced amyloid-related imaging abnormalities (ARIA). Accumulation of Abeta plaque in the brain is a defining feature of Alzheimer’s disease. In April, Denali announced that Biogen exercised its option to license Denali’s ATV:Abeta. Biogen will assume responsibility for all development and commercial activities and associated expenses. Denali will receive a one-time option exercise payment and, if certain milestones are achieved, Denali will be eligible to receive potential development and commercial milestone payments, and royalties based on future net sales. SMALL MOLECULE PROGRAMS BIIB122/DNL151 (LRRK2 Inhibitor): Parkinson’s disease (Idiopathic and LRKK2-Positive) BIIB122/DNL151 is an investigational small molecule inhibitor of LRRK2, one of the most common genetic drivers of Parkinson’s disease. Targeting LRRK2 has the potential to impact the underlying biology and slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease. Denali and Biogen are co-developing BIIB122. Biogen is conducting two late-stage studies: the Phase 2b LUMA study in participants with early-stage Parkinson’s disease and the Phase 3 LIGHTHOUSE study in participants with Parkinson's disease and a confirmed LRRK2 pathogenic variant. SAR443820/DNL788 (CNS-Penetrant RIPK1 Inhibitor): ALS, MS SAR443820/DNL788 is an investigational, CNS-penetrant, small molecule inhibitor of RIPK1, a critical signaling protein in a canonical inflammatory and cell death pathway. Increased RIPK1 activity in the CNS is hypothesized to drive neuroinflammation and cell necroptosis and to contribute to neurodegeneration. Denali and Sanofi are co-developing SAR443820. Sanofi is conducting the global Phase 2 HIMALAYA study for participants with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In January, Denali announced that Sanofi initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial in multiple sclerosis (MS) for which Denali received a milestone payment of $25 million. DNL343 (eIF2B Activator): ALS DNL343 is an investigational small molecule activator of the eukaryotic initiation factor 2B (eIF2B), is designed to inhibit the cellular integrated stress response (ISR) and prevent or slow disease progression associated with stress granule formation and TDP-43 aggregation, which is a hallmark pathology present in nearly all individuals with ALS. In April, Denali presented final data from the 28-day treatment period of the Phase 1b study of DNL343 in participants with ALS at the 75th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN). The results continued to demonstrate that once-daily oral dosing with DNL343 for 28 days was generally well tolerated and demonstrated extensive CSF penetration. In addition, robust inhibition of biomarkers associated with the ISR pathway was observed in blood samples from study participants. The Phase 1b data continue to support plans to initiate dosing with DNL343 in the Phase 2/3 HEALEY ALS Platform Trial. OTHER CLINICAL PROGRAMS SAR443122/DNL758 (Peripheral RIPK1 Inhibitor): CLE and UC SAR443122/DNL758 (eclitasertib), is an investigational, peripherally restricted, small molecule inhibitor of RIPK1. Sanofi is solely responsible for the development and commercialization of peripherally restricted RIPK1 inhibitors. Sanofi is conducting a Phase 2 study of DNL758 in patients with cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE). In January, Denali announced that Sanofi had initiated a Phase 2 trial of SAR443122 in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) for which a milestone payment of $10 million was received in December 2023. DISCOVERY PROGRAMS Denali continues to advance a broad preclinical portfolio including programs enabled by the Enzyme Transport Vehicle, the Antibody Transport Vehicle, and the Oligonucleotide Transport Vehicle, and several small molecules engineered to cross the BBB and intended as potential treatments for patients with neurodegenerative diseases and lysosomal storage diseases. Recent Corporate Updates: In March, a contingent consideration payment of $30 million associated with Denali’s acquisition of F-star Gamma was triggered upon the achievement of a specified clinical milestone in the ETV:IDS program. This payment fully satisfies Denali’s clinical contingent consideration obligations under the Purchase Agreement. Participation in Upcoming Investor Conferences: Bank of America 2023 Healthcare Conference, May 9-11 Jefferies Global Healthcare Conference, June 7-9 Goldman Sachs 44th Annual Global Healthcare Conference, June 12-15 BTIG Virtual Biotechnology Conference 2023, August 7-8 First Quarter 2023 Financial Results Net losses were $109.8 million and $65.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Collaboration revenue was $35.1 million and $42.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The decrease in collaboration revenue of $7.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to the comparative period in the prior year was primarily due to a decrease in revenue from our collaboration with Takeda primarily due to completion of the preclinical research service performance obligations, and a decrease in revenue under the Biogen Collaboration Agreement due to completion of the ATV:Abeta Option Research Services. These decreases are partially offset by an increase in revenue from our collaboration with Sanofi as a result of the $25.0 million milestone achieved in January 2023 upon first patient in a Phase 2 study of SAR443820/DNL788 in individuals with MS. Total research and development expenses were $128.8 million and $86.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The increase of approximately $42.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the comparative period in the prior year was attributable to: an increase in ETV:IDS program external expenses primarily due to the accrued contingent consideration payment of $30.0 million related to the acquisition of F-star Gamma, which was triggered in March 2023 upon the achievement of a specified clinical milestone in the ETV:IDS program; an increase in other unallocated research and development expenses primarily due to increased facility costs as a result of accelerated depreciation on leasehold improvements associated with the termination of the previous SLC lease; and an increase in personnel-related expenses, including stock-based compensation, mainly driven by higher headcount and equity award grants. Further, net cost sharing reimbursements from collaboration partners decreased as cost sharing payments owed to Biogen increased. These net expense increases were partially offset by decreases in TV platform and other program external expenses and PTV:PGRN program external expenses due to the timing of significant external research and manufacturing related activities period over period. General and administrative expenses were $27.1 million and $22.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The increase of approximately $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the comparative period in the prior year was primarily attributable to an increase in personnel-related expenses, including employee compensation and stock-based compensation expenses, driven by higher headcount and equity award grants. Additionally, there were increases in facility costs, consulting, and legal professional services expenses. Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were approximately $1.29 billion as of March 31, 2023.
