Deal Highlights

We are a clinical stage biopharmaceutical drug development company focused on novel therapeutics targeting currently untreatable eye diseases involving retinal degeneration such as atrophic age-related macular degeneration (commonly known as dry AMD) and autosomal recessive Stargardt disease, or STGD1, both of which progressively lead to permanent blindness, and metabolic diseases such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, or NAFLD, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH, type 2 diabetes, or T2D, and gout. We believe our lead product candidate, LBS-008, or Tinlarebant, if approved, would provide a novel treatment option where there currently is none. LBS-008 is an oral once-a-day treatment that can reduce and maintain the delivery of vitamin A (retinol) to the eye as a means to reduce the accumulation of toxic vitamin A by-products in ocular tissue. This effect is achieved through the ability of LBS-008 to reduce and maintain the level of serum retinol binding protein 4, or RBP4, which carries retinol from the liver to the eye. In clinical trials, LBS-008 has demonstrated its target specificity and potency that we believe could be clinically meaningful to treat STGD1 patients. We initiated an open-label, dose-finding Phase 1b/2 clinical trial in adolescent STGD1 patients in mid-2020 in Australia and Taiwan. The study design includes two portions: Phase 1b and Phase 2. We have completed the Phase 1b portion of this study in 11 adolescent STGD1 patients which has extended into a two-year, Phase 2 study with 13 adolescent STGD1 patients in Australia and Taiwan. The preliminary data from the Phase 1b portion has shown that LBS-008 can achieve a mean RBP4 reduction of > 70%, relative to baseline values. We are currently conducting the Phase 2 portion of this study. See “—Phase 1b/2 Clinical Trial in STGD1” below for more information.
