Final Data Analysis of Phase 2 PBC Trial Shows that Genkyotex’s Anti-fibrotic Candidate GKT831 Demonstrated Statistically Significant Improvements in GGT and ALP Over Full Treatment Period

  • Statistically significant reductions in GGT and ALP in 400mg BID dose over 24-week treatment period (p<0.002 and p<0.001, respectively)
  • GKT831 400mg BID significantly improved multiple quality of life metrics important to PBC patients, including fatigue (p=0.027)
  • Clean safety profile of GKT831 at all doses, with no safety signal identified over 24-week treatment period
  • Previously reported data showed a 22% reduction in liver stiffness in PBC patients with liver fibrosis compared to a 4% increase for placebo (p=0.038), supports anti-fibrotic mechanism
