Substantial Reduction in Operational Spend while Maintaining Focus on BLA Resubmission

NEW YORK, May 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mesoblast Limited (Nasdaq:MESO; ASX:MSB) global leader in allogeneic cellular medicines for inflammatory diseases, today reported financial results and operational highlights for the period ended March 31, 2022.

Financial Highlights

  • Net cash usage reported for operating activities in the quarter was reduced by 40%, or US$10.3 million, to US$15.5 million compared with US$25.8 million in the comparative quarter last year1

  • For the quarter, net cash usage reported for operating activities, excluding inventory for the planned remestemcel-L product launch, was reduced by 50% to US$11.2 million from US$22.2 million in the comparative quarter

  • For the nine-month period ended March 31, 2022, net cash usage reported for operating activities was reduced by 36%, or US$31.2 million, to US$54.8 million compared with US$86.0 million in the comparative period last year, and by 40% excluding inventory for the planned remestemcel-L product launch

  • Revenues in the quarter were US$2.0 million, including US$1.9 million from TEMCELL® HS Inj.2 royalties on sales for SR-aGvHD in Japan, an increase of 5% on the comparative quarter last year

  • Revenues increased 46%, for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2022, to US$8.0 million compared with US$5.5 million in the comparative period last year

  • Cash on hand at the end of the quarter was US$76.8 million, with up to an additional US$40 million available to be drawn down from existing financing facilities subject to certain milestones

Board and Management Highlights

  • Philip R. Krause, M.D. joined the Board of Directors in March. Dr. Krause was for the past decade Deputy Director, Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVRR) at the United States Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER). Dr. Krause is currently Chair of the World Health Organization COVID Vaccines Research Expert Group, and most recently he shared responsibility for regulatory authorizations of COVID-19 vaccines in the US. Dr. Krause’s deep insights and knowledge of regulatory processes will be invaluable to Mesoblast as it prepares its resubmission of the Biologics License Application (BLA) to the FDA for remestemcel-L in the treatment of children with steroid-refractory acute graft versus host disease (SR-aGVHD)

  • Eric Rose, M.D. was appointed as the Company’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), having been a non-executive director of Mesoblast since 2013. Previously Chairman of Surgery at Columbia University’s School of Medicine, Dr. Rose brings to his new role an extensive record of excellence in clinical development and successful interactions at the highest levels with key regulatory, industry and government stakeholders including the United States FDA, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA)

Operational Highlights for Remestemcel-L

Resubmission of the Biologics License Application (BLA) for remestemcel-L in the treatment of children with steroid-refractory graft versus host disease (SR-aGVHD) to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

  • Mesoblast believes that the proposed potency assay measuring remestemcel-L’s in vitro anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activity helps establish a clear understanding of remestemcel-L’s mechanism of action in SR-aGVHD, and demonstrates relevance to the in vivo clinical effect of the product in the 54-patient Phase 3 trial in children with SR-aGVHD

  • An investigator-initiated controlled study in children with SR-aGVHD stratified by baseline levels of inflammatory biomarkers, published late 2021 in the peer-reviewed journal Bone Marrow Transplantation,3 showed that remestemcel-L provided a significant benefit in terms of both response and survival in children with the highest levels of inflammation and at greatest risk of death compared to best available therapy

  • The study compared outcomes in 25 children from Mesoblast’s Phase 3 trial of remestemcel-L in SR-aGVHD with 27 closely matched children from the Mount Sinai Acute GVHD International Consortium (MAGIC).4 In children with baseline MAGIC Algorithm Probability (MAP) biomarker levels ≥0.29, a level associated with significant GI inflammation and damage, and which is predictive of poor treatment responses and very high mortality in SR-aGVHD, treatment with remestemcel-L resulted in 67% Day 28 Overall Response and 64% Day 180 overall survival compared with 10% Day 28 Overall Response and 10% Day 180 survival in the MAGIC cohort (both p=0.01) when treated with various biologics, including ruxolitinib

  • The proposed potency assay demonstrates a relationship between the product’s activity in vitro and its effects on survival in the Phase 3 trial, with the strongest correlation to survival in those patients at highest mortality risk as measured by clinical severity or high biomarker levels of inflammation

  • Additionally, Mesoblast has now generated data from the expanded access program (EAP 275) of 241 children which confirm the ability of the in-vitro potency assay to measure product activity relevant to survival outcomes

  • While global supply chain constraints impacted supply of assay kits during the quarter, our GMP contractor is now well resourced allowing final testing of product inventory for the BLA resubmission

  • In preparation for the expected FDA review, Mesoblast last week completed a successful mock pre-approval inspection of its GMP manufacturing facility and process comprising both on-site and virtual inspections by external auditors

  • Mesoblast will provide these new data to FDA and address all chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) outstanding items as required for the planned BLA resubmission in the coming quarter. If the resubmission is accepted, CBER will consider the adequacy of the clinical data in the context of the related CMC issues

COVID-19 acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)

  • Provided an update on survival outcomes from the randomized controlled trial of remestemcel-L in ventilator-dependent COVID-19 patients with moderate/severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and plans for a pivotal trial with collaborative investigators

  • Through the initial 90 days, remestemcel-L reduced mortality by 48% compared to controls in a pre-specified analysis of 123 patients below age 65 (26% vs 44%, p=0.038),5,6 but not in 97 patients over age 65, as previously reported. In an exploratory analysis in 73 patients under age 65 who also received dexamethasone as part of their standard of care, remestemcel-L reduced 90-day mortality by 77% compared to controls (14% vs 48%, p=0.0037).5,6 These early survival outcomes in the remestemcel-L group relative to controls were maintained at later timepoints in those under age 65, with a 42% reduction in mortality through 12 months and with continued observed synergy with dexamethasone (p<0.05)5,6

  • The Phase 2/3 trial in COVID ARDS randomized 1:1 to either standard of care alone or standard of care plus two doses of remestemcel-L 2 million cells/kg 3-5 days apart. This two-dose regimen of remestemcel-L was the same as in the earlier compassionate use program where 11 of 12 patients were younger than 65 and 75% successfully came off ventilatory support. These pilot study results were recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Cytotherapy.7. In contrast, remestemcel-L is used at an eight-dose regimen of 2 million cells/kg over four weeks in patients with steroid-refractory acute graft versus host disease (SR-aGVHD). The established extended dosing regimen in SR-aGVHD, another severe inflammatory condition, provides a rationale for exploring an extended course of remestemcel-L in older patients with COVID ARDS who have higher levels of inflammation

  • ARDS remains a major cause of mortality for COVID-19 patients who are immunocompromised, unvaccinated, or with comorbidities, as well as those with seasonal influenza and other pathogens. Mesoblast is working together with investigators from a clinical trial network focused on acute lung injury at over 40 sites across the United States affiliated with Vanderbilt University Medical Center to design and implement a pivotal trial of remestemcel-L to reduce mortality in high-risk patients with ARDS

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

  • Results from an interim analysis of the first cohort of patients from the randomized, controlled study of remestemcel-L by direct endoscopic delivery to areas of inflammation in patients with medically refractory ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s colitis were published in the Journal of Crohn's and Colitis.8,9 A single local delivery of remestemcel-L by colonoscopy resulted in rapid mucosal healing, improved clinical and endoscopic scores as early as two weeks following remestemcel-L, and a high incidence of disease remission by six weeks

Operational Highlights for Rexlemestrocel-L

Chronic Heart Failure

  • Dr. Eugene Braunwald who has often been called the father of modern cardiology and the most frequently cited author in cardiology,10 last month wrote an opinion piece in European Heart Journal titled Cardiac cell therapy: a call for action.11 The paper highlighted next generation mesenchymal stromal (bone marrow-derived) cells as attractive candidates for cardiac cell therapy (CCT). He specifically highlighted the clinical outcomes observed in Mesoblast’s DREAM-HF Phase 3 trial and pointed out the company’s commercial leadership globally in the field of CCT for heart failure

  • Mesoblast received feedback in Q4 CY2021 from FDA confirming that reduction in major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) of cardiovascular mortality or irreversible morbidity (non-fatal heart attack or stroke) is an acceptable clinically meaningful endpoint for determining the treatment benefit of rexlemestrocel-L for patients with chronic heart failure and low ejection fraction (HFrEF). In December, following FDA guidance, Mesoblast presented additional top-line results in pre-specified high-risk groups in the DREAM-HF Phase 3 trial of rexlemestrocel-L in HFrEF which showed that the greatest treatment benefit is in patients with diabetes and/or myocardial ischemia (72% of total treated population), a target population at very high risk for mortality and irreversible morbidity due to micro- and macro-vascular disease despite receiving optimal standard of care therapies12

  • Mesoblast expects to receive further guidance from FDA on a potential approval pathway following detailed review of the outcomes identified in high-risk HFrEF patients with diabetes and/or myocardial ischemia

Chronic Low Back Pain

  • Presented 36-month follow-up results from the 404-patient Phase 3 trial of rexlemestrocel-L (MPC-06-ID) in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP) associated with degenerative disc disease (DDD) which showed durable reduction in back pain lasting at least three years from a single intra-discal injection of rexlemestrocel-L+hyaluronic acid (HA) carrier

  • Mesoblast received feedback in December 2021 from FDA on the Phase 3 program for CLBP and plans to conduct an additional US Phase 3 trial which may support submissions for potential approval in both the US and EU. Following review of the completed Phase 3 trial data, FDA agreed with Mesoblast’s proposal for pain reduction at 12 months as the primary endpoint of the next trial, with functional improvement and reduction in opioid use as secondary endpoints

FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE PERIOD ENDED MARCH 31, 2022 (THIRD QUARTER FY2022)

  • Total Revenue increased by 5% from the comparative quarter last year to US$2.0 million for the third quarter FY2022, including US$1.9 million from TEMCELL® HS Inj.2 royalties on sales for SR-aGvHD in Japan

  • Cash on hand at the end of the quarter was US$76.8 million, with up to an additional US$40 million available to be drawn down from existing financing facilities subject to certain milestones

  • Net cash usage for operating activities in the quarter was reduced by 40%, or US$10.3 million, to US$15.5 million compared with US$25.8 million in the comparative quarter last year

  • Research & Development expenses reduced by US$4.2 million (34%), down to US$8.2 million for the third quarter FY2022 from US$12.4 million for the third quarter FY2021 as clinical trial activities for our COVID-19 ARDS, CLBP and CHF product candidates reduced given clinical trial recruitment and data analysis is now complete

  • Manufacturing expense were US$5.6 million for the third quarter FY2022, compared to US$7.3 million for the third quarter FY2021. During the quarter we continued to build our pre-launch inventory levels of remestemcel-L to support the commercial launch for SR-aGVHD
    We expect to recognize the US$29.7 million balance of remestemcel-L pre-launch inventory, and the balance of any further production completed at that time, on our balance sheet if we receive FDA approval

  • Management and Administration expenses decreased from US$8.1 million for the third quarter FY2021 to US$7.6 million for the third quarter FY2022; this decrease was predominantly due to one-off expenditure in legal and professional fees associated with regulatory and financing activities in the third quarter FY2021

  • Remeasurement of Contingent Consideration reduced to a gain of US$0.7 million for the third quarter FY2022 whereas a gain of US$1.5 million was recognized in the third quarter FY2021 as a result of revaluing future third party payments

  • Fair value movement of warrants we recognized a gain of US$0.9 million in the third quarter FY2022, compared to Nil for the third quarter FY2021

  • Finance Costs for borrowing arrangements with Oaktree and NovaQuest were US$3.9 million for the third quarter FY2022, compared to US$3.2 million for the third quarter FY2021

Loss after tax for the third quarter FY2022 was US$21.3 million compared to US$26.5 million for the third quarter FY2021. The net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders was 3.28 US cents per share for the third quarter FY2022, compared with 4.39 US cents per share for the third quarter FY2021.
