BOSTON, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- X4 Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: XFOR), a company driven to improve the lives of people with rare diseases of the immune system, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024 and highlighted key recent and upcoming expected milestones.

“With the recent U.S. approval of our first commercial product, XOLREMDI (mavorixafor) in WHIM syndrome, we are now deploying our experienced rare disease field force, engaging with payers to communicate the XOLREMDI value proposition, and, most importantly, enabling patient access to treatment as quickly as possible,” said Paula Ragan, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of X4 Pharmaceuticals. “Concurrent with this approval, we received a Rare Pediatric Disease Priority Review Voucher, which we intend to monetize. In addition, we look forward to sharing data in June from our ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial exploring the use of mavorixafor in certain chronic neutropenic disorders.”

Recent and Key Anticipated Upcoming Milestones

  • In late April 2024, X4 announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved XOLREMDI (mavorixafor) capsules for use in patients 12 years of age and older with WHIM syndrome (warts, hypogammaglobulinemia, infections and myelokathexis) to increase the number of circulating mature neutrophils and lymphocytes. The approval was based on results from the global, pivotal 4WHIM Phase 3 clinical trial that evaluated the efficacy and safety of XOLREMDI in people diagnosed with WHIM syndrome.
  • Data from the 4WHIM trial were recently published online in Blood, the journal of the American Society of Hematology, and new data from the trial and its open-label extension phase were recently presented at the annual meeting of the Clinical Immunology Society (CIS).
  • In June 2024, X4 expects to present interim data from its ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial exploring the use of mavorixafor as a once-daily oral treatment for people with certain chronic neutropenic disorders. Interim data are expected to include hematological results from at least 15 participants treated with fixed doses of either mavorixafor monotherapy or mavorixafor in combination with injectable granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF).
  • X4 also plans to initiate a global, pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial in the second quarter of 2024 that aims to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of oral once-daily mavorixafor (with or without G-CSF) in people with congenital or acquired primary autoimmune and idiopathic chronic neutropenia who are experiencing recurrent and/or serious infections.
  • X4 currently expects to seek approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for mavorixafor in WHIM syndrome in late 2024/early 2025.

First-Quarter 2024 Results

  • Cash, Cash Equivalents, Restricted Cash and Short-Term Marketable Securities: X4 had $81.6 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term marketable securities as of March 31, 2024. X4 believes it has sufficient funds to support company operations into 2025 and notes that this projected runway does not include the potential monetization of the Priority Review Voucher the company has received as a result of the U.S. approval of XOLREMDI.
  • Research and Development (R&D) Expenses were $19.9 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024 as compared to $22.1 million for the comparable period in 2023. R&D expenses for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024 included $0.8 million of certain non-cash expenses.
  • Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses (SG&A) were $17.4 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024 as compared to $7.2 million for the comparable period in 2023. SG&A expenses for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024 included $1.0 million of certain non-cash expenses.
  • Net Loss: X4 reported a net loss of $51.8 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024, as compared to $24.0 million for the comparable period in 2023. Net losses in the current period include a non-cash loss of $13.8 million related to the company’s Class C warrant liability, which is adjusted to fair value each reporting period. Net losses also included $1.7 million of stock-based compensation expense.

First-quarter 2024 expenses included greater costs due to commercial and medical team expansions as well as launch preparations across the commercial and medical organizations.
