BioMedNewsBreaks — Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) Releases Financial Report, Business Update for Q1 2024

Longeveron (NASDAQ: LGVN), a clinical-stage, regenerative-medicine biotechnology company developing cellular therapies for life-threatening and chronic aging-related conditions, is reporting financial results and a business update for the first quarter of 2024, the period ended March 31, 2024. Highlights of the report include that the company’s phase 2b clinical trial evaluating Lomecel-B(TM) in rare pediatric disease hypoplastic left heart syndrome (“HLHS”) is on track for completing enrollment by the end of this year; data from the phase 2a clinical trial evaluating Lomecel-B in Alzheimer’s disease has been selected to be a featured research oral presentation at this year’s Alzheimer’s Association International Conference; the completion of two financings last month resulting in gross proceeds of $11.4 million, which will fund continued clinical development; and focused expenditure management reduced first quarter total operating expenses 8% year-over-year. “In the first quarter, we continued to focus on advancing our cutting-edge cellular therapy research and its application through our investigational product candidate, Lomecel-B, in hypoplastic left heart syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease, both of which are devastating for impacted patients and their families,” said Longeveron CEO Wa’el Hashad in the press release. “Based on the strength of the data from our positive phase 1 study in HLHS, we are excited to complete enrollment in our ongoing Phase 2b study by the end of this year. The phase 1 data was the basis for the U.S. FDA awarding the HLHS program with three distinct and important designations: Orphan Drug designation, Fast Track designation and Rare Pediatric Disease designation, which, upon approval, may lead to granting of a Priority Review Voucher, a very valuable additional asset. Lastly, in April, we raised $11.4 million of gross proceeds from equity transactions, with participation from certain board members and insiders of the company, to fund continued clinical development of Lomecel-B.”
