Additional Data on Lumos OraGrowtH Trials Presented at International Meeting of Pediatric Endocrinology

Mar 5, 2023

Austin, Texas, UNITED STATES Oral Presentation Highlighting Data on 15 Subjects from OraGrowtH212 Trial Supportive of Conclusions from Interim Data Analysis Baseline Characteristics of OraGrowtH210 Trial Subjects Highlighted in Poster Presentation AUSTIN, Texas, March 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumos Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:LUMO), a biopharmaceutical company advancing an oral therapeutic candidate for Pediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency (PGHD) through Phase 2 clinical trials, announced today that additional data from its OraGrowtH212 trial was included in an oral presentation of interim results at the 2023 International Meeting of Pediatric Endocrinology (IMPE) , held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, March 4-7, 2023. Data from the interim analysis of its OraGrowtH210 trial are also being presented as a poster during the conference. “The additional data presented at IMPE on our OraGrowtH212 Trial reinforce the conclusions drawn about the PK/PD profile of LUM-201 from the interim data analysis we conducted last November,” said Rick Hawkins, Chairman and CEO of Lumos Pharma. “The data update continued to show a dose-dependent increase of growth hormone pulsatility, correlation of pulsatility with increased height velocity, and a durable response out to 12 months. Now that the OraGrowtH210 and OraGrowtH212 trials are fully enrolled, we look forward to completing these studies and announcing top line results in the fourth quarter of 2023.” Oral Presentation Title - Dose-dependent Increase in GH AUC0-12h with LUM-201 in Idiopathic Pediatric GH Deficiency (iPGHD) from the Interim Analysis Data of the OraGrowtH212 Trial Lead Author – Fernando Cassorla, M.D., Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology, University of Chile Date/Time - Sunday, March 5, 3:15 PM – 4:00 PM local time Slide presentation available in the Posters & Publications section of Lumos Pharma’s website The OraGrowtH212 Trial is a single site, open-label trial evaluating the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of oral LUM-201 in 22 treatment-naïve PGHD subjects at two dose levels, 1.6 and 3.2 mg/kg/day. Subjects enrolled in the OraGrowtH212 Trial are PEM-positive and, therefore, enriched for responsiveness to LUM-201. In this presentation, results of analysis of 15 subjects were presented. The updated analysis included data on five additional subjects (three in the 1.6 mg/kg treatment arm, two in the 3.2 mg/kg treatment arm) since interim results of the OraGrowtH212 Trial were announced in November 2022. Results showed that across the dose range of 1.6 to 3.2 mg/kg/day for 6 months, LUM-201 is well-tolerated and produces dose-dependent and substantial increases in GH AUC0-12h. Results also showed that increased GH pulse amplitude was associated with improved height velocity compared to baseline, and that effects on annualized height velocity were durable through 12 months. Poster Presentation (Poster #83) Title - Baseline Demographics of the OraGrowtH210 Trial Studying LUM-201 in Idiopathic Pediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency (iPGHD) Interim Analysis Data (Poster #83) Lead Author - Alison Lunsford, M.D., Assistant Professor, Texas Tech Physicians of Amarillo Date/Time - March 5-7 (Dr. Lunsford present at poster session March 6, 11:45 am-1:45pm local time) Poster presentation available in the Posters & Publications section of Lumos Pharma’s website The OraGrowtH210 Trial is a multi-site, global Phase 2 trial evaluating orally administered LUM-201 at three dose levels (0.8, 1.6, 3.2 mg/kg/day) against a standard dose of injectable rhGH in 82 subjects diagnosed with idiopathic (moderate) PGHD. The poster presentation highlighted the results of the interim analysis of data for 41 subjects from the OraGrowtH210 Trial. These data showed mean annualized height velocity of 8.6 cm/year at the 1.6 mg/kg/day LUM-201 dose, in line with expectations of growth observed in multiple large historical datasets of this moderate idiopathic PGHD population treated with rhGH. An imbalance in baseline demographic characteristics between the LUM-201 and rhGH arms predicted the disparate growth responses observed across these cohorts. These imbalances, due primarily to two growth outliers in the rhGH cohort, are expected to diminish at full enrollment with a complete dataset of 82 subjects.

Lumos Pharma was founded and is led by a management team with longstanding experience in rare disease drug development.

AAVLife, registered in Paris, is a privately held company dedicated to advancing gene therapy for rare diseases. AAVLife's lead indication is for Friedreich's Ataxia Cardiomyopathy. Its program is based on the successful use of a gene-therapy approach in a mouse model developed to mimic the gene defect and cardiac symptoms of Friedreich's Ataxia. The approach made use of an adeno-associated virus (AAV) to introduce a normal gene into cardiac tissue. The therapy restored cardiac function and reversed pathological heart enlargement in mice that had already progressed to heart failure.
