Interim Data from the heart-1 Phase 1b Clinical Trial of VERVE-101 in Patients with HeFH to be Presented at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions 2023 on November 12 at 3:30 p.m. ET; Company to Host Investor Event and Webcast on November 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET
BOSTON, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Verve Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering a new approach to the care of cardiovascular disease with single-course gene editing medicines, today reported recent company progress and financial results for the third quarter of 2023.
“Verve was founded in 2018 with a vision to develop single-course gene editing medicines for cardiovascular disease and throughout this year, we have made tremendous strides towards realizing that vision,” said Sekar Kathiresan, M.D., co-founder and chief executive officer of Verve. “We continue to progress the heart-1 Phase 1b trial of VERVE-101 in patients in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, and we are looking forward to presenting interim data from this trial at the upcoming AHA meeting. We have obtained clearance of our first IND application from the FDA, which now enables us to add U.S. sites to the heart-1 trial and begins the regulatory path in the U.S. for VERVE-101. Beyond VERVE-101, we remain focused on advancing our pipeline and are on-track to initiate Phase 1 clinical trials for VERVE-102 in the first half of 2024 and VERVE-201 in the second half of 2024. Finally, we are thrilled to gain Lilly as a collaborator for our PCSK9 and ANGPTL3 programs. Lilly brings development expertise as well as a track record of successful commercialization of cardiometabolic medicines. We believe all of this progress in 2023 moves us closer to being able to deliver a new class of medicines to patients living with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD).”
