KalVista Pharmaceuticals Presents New Patient-Centric Data at 2022 HAEi Global Leadership Workshop

KalVista Pharmaceuticals Presents New Patient-Centric Data at 2022 HAEi Global Leadership Workshop




KalVista Pharmaceuticals Presents New Patient-Centric Data at 2022 HAEi Global Leadership Workshop

Data examines patient perspectives on treatment outcome measures used in phase 3 KONFIDENT trial of sebetralstat –

Additional data show the impact of HAE on mental health, daily activities, and quality of life of people living with HAE –

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & SALISBURY, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$KALV–KalVista Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: KALV), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of oral, small molecule protease inhibitors, today presented new data on patient-preferred on-demand treatment measures in hereditary angioedema (HAE), and on the effects that the disease has on quality of life for people living with HAE, at the 2022 HAEi Global Leadership Workshop in Frankfurt, Germany.

KalVista presented supportive data for the use of the Patient Global Impression of Change (PGI-C) scale as a clinical endpoint to assess the efficacy of on-demand treatments for HAE attacks. Qualitative interviews with people with HAE demonstrated clear preference for the PGI-C (>70%,) over other scales as a measurement tool for patient outcomes. These findings are consistent with post hoc analyses of the KalVista phase 2 clinical trial for sebetralstat, which found PGI-C to be a clinically meaningful measure of efficacy for on-demand treatment of HAE attacks. The combination of clinical meaningfulness and patient preference led KalVista to choose PGI-C as the primary outcome measure for the ongoing phase 3 KONFIDENT clinical trial.

A second KalVista presentation highlighted the significant impact that HAE attacks have on the mental health, daily activities, and quality of life of people living with HAE. This research found that a majority of people with HAE missed out on important events in their lives due to anxiety associated with unpredictability of HAE attacks and that almost half the time, patients feel “less than their 100% self” because of HAE.

“Despite many years of research in HAE, we are still gaining new insights on the impact of HAE attacks on the lives of people with the disease,” said Andrew Crockett, Chief Executive Officer of KalVista. “The goal of this and other research we conduct is to better understand the consequences of HAE and to learn how improve the treatment experience for these patients with our pipeline of oral therapies.”

The following posters were presented at the 2022 HAEi Global Leadership Workshop:

  • Patient Perspectives on an Optimal Outcome Measure to Assess Efficacy in the Acute Treatment of Hereditary Angioedema Attacks: Dr. Marc A. Riedl, Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA
  • The Global and Regional Impact of Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) Attacks on Mental Health, Activities of Daily Living and Quality of Life: Dr. Paula J. Busse, Department of Medicine, Division of Clinical Immunology, The Mount Sinai Hospital; New York, New York, USA

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Receives a NYSE American Notice Regarding Low Share Price

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Receives a NYSE American Notice Regarding Low Share Price




NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Receives a NYSE American Notice Regarding Low Share Price

EMERYVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NovaBay® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE American: NBY) announces that on October 3, 2022 it received a notice from the NYSE American LLC that the Company’s common stock has been selling for a low price per share for a substantial period of time. As a result, pursuant to Section 1003(f)(v) of the NYSE American Company Guide, the Company must effect a reverse stock split of its common stock or otherwise demonstrate sustained price improvement within a reasonable period of time, which the NYSE American has determined to be no later than April 3, 2023, in order to continue its listing on the NYSE American.

The Company intends to take steps to improve its stock price, which include the filing of a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to hold a Special Meeting of Stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) on November 10, 2022 seeking stockholder authorization of a reverse stock split at a ratio of between 1-for-10 and 1-for-35. The notice from the NYSE American has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock, and the common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE American.

The Company expects that the reverse stock split, if approved by stockholders at the Special Meeting and effected, will increase the market price of its common stock, which the Company believes will enable it to satisfy the continued listing requirements of the NYSE American for the foreseeable future. In addition, the reverse stock split may improve the marketability and liquidity of its common stock, and appeal to a broader range of investors. Further, due to the number of shares of common stock underlying the securities issued, or to be issued, in connection with two financing transactions entered into on September 9, 2022, the NYSE American rules require the Company to seek stockholder approval prior to the issuance of those underlying shares. The additional capital from these transactions is expected to support implementation of the Company’s growth strategies.

“Like other small publicly traded companies, NovaBay has faced challenging market conditions during 2022, prompting us to seek stockholder approval to effect a reverse stock split and to raise additional capital to fund our business strategy,” said Justin Hall, NovaBay CEO. “That said, we are optimistic about our prospects for continued sales growth. We are building on established brands in the large and growing eyecare, skincare and wound care markets with differentiated products that are scientifically developed and clinically proven. We are executing on a commercial strategy featuring multiple product launches while leveraging new market opportunities and broadening distribution of our current products. Given the timing of implementing our growth initiatives and other anticipated favorable developments, we continue to expect topline growth through 2022 and into 2023.”

The definitive proxy statement was filed with the SEC on September 30, 2022 and is available here. All NovaBay stockholders of record at the close of business on the record date, September 13, 2022, are entitled to vote their shares of Company common stock at the Special Meeting. Every stockholder’s vote is important, regardless of the number of shares held, and the Company requests the prompt submission of votes.

The Special Meeting will be held virtually at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time on Thursday, November 10, 2022. Stockholders as of the record date are invited to attend the Special Meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/NBY2022SM. Instructions regarding how to connect and participate live via the Internet, including how to demonstrate proof of stock ownership, are posted at https://east.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/vsm/web?pvskey=NBY2022SM.

If stockholders have questions or need assistance with voting their shares, please call Alliance Advisors, LLC, the Company’s proxy solicitor, at 855-643-7304.
