NEWARK, Calif., March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CymaBay Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBAY), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing therapies for liver and other chronic diseases with high unmet need, today announced corporate updates and financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.
In the fourth quarter of 2020 and through early March 2021, CymaBay made significant progress reinitiating the development program for seladelpar in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). With multiple clinical sites activated, patient recruitment is underway in RESPONSE, a global Phase 3 registrational study evaluating seladelpar in patients with PBC. In addition, we have also initiated ASSURE, an open-label, long-term study of seladelpar in patients with PBC intended to collect additional safety data to support registration.
Sujal Shah, President and CEO of CymaBay, stated, “One year ago today, our work towards finding novel treatments for patients with chronic, inflammatory and metabolic diseases was on hold as we completed the important work of ensuring patient safety before moving forward. Today we have four active clinical studies ongoing across three programs. We continue to make great progress towards restarting our seladelpar development program with RESPONSE as we execute on a focused strategy to complete late-stage development of seladelpar for patients with PBC. Results from our previous Phase 3 study in PBC, ENHANCE, presented at The Liver Meeting® 2020, highlighted the anti-cholestatic, anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic effects of seladelpar in patients with PBC that we believe support the potential for seladelpar to address key unmet needs for patients suffering from this disease. In addition to our core focus in PBC, we continue to evaluate seladelpar for other indications and are excited about our early-stage pipeline maturing in the coming months.”
