Ventyx Biosciences, Inc.: Ventyx Biosciences Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results and Highlights Recent Corporate Progress

Ventyx to host virtual investor event on March 11th to provide clinical updates on our NLRP3 portfolio and from the open-label extension of the VTX002 Phase 2 trial in ulcerative colitis

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $252.2 million as of December 31, 2023 are expected to fund operations into at least H2 2025

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ventyx Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: VTYX) ("Ventyx"), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing novel oral therapies that address a broad range of inflammatory diseases with significant unmet medical need, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023, and highlighted recent pipeline and business progress.

"We look forward to sharing a number of clinical updates at our virtual investor event on March 11th," said Raju Mohan, Chief Executive Officer. "This includes topline results from the Phase 2 trial of our peripheral NLRP3 inhibitor VTX2735 in patients with CAPS and topline results from the Phase 1 trial of our CNS-penetrant NLRP3 inhibitor VTX3232 in healthy volunteers. We will also provide an update from the ongoing open-label extension of the VTX002 Phase 2 trial in ulcerative colitis."

Pipeline Updates

  • VTX002 (S1P1R Modulator): In October 2023, we announced positive results from the Phase 2 trial of VTX002 in patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC). We believe these data establish VTX002 as a potential best-in-disease oral agent in UC based on its differentiated efficacy profile, including a high rate of complete endoscopic remission, and its potential best-in-class safety profile. We will provide additional data from the open-label extension of the Phase 2 UC trial at our virtual investor event. Activities are underway to support initiation of a Phase 3 trial of VTX002 in UC during the second half of 2024.
  • VTX958 (TYK2 Inhibitor): We are evaluating VTX958 in a Phase 2 trial in patients with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease. We recently implemented a protocol amendment for the ongoing Phase 2 trial to streamline trial design and accelerate potential detection of an efficacy signal. As a result of the protocol amendment, target enrollment in the trial was revised from approximately 132 patients to approximately 93 patients. The trial's sole primary endpoint is now the change from baseline in the mean Crohn's disease activity index (CDAI) score at Week 12. We anticipate completing randomization of the trial during the first quarter of 2024 and we expect to report topline results from the Phase 2 Crohn's disease trial during the middle of 2024.
  • VTX2735 (Peripheral NLRP3 Inhibitor): We are conducting a Phase 2 trial of VTX2735 in patients with familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS). FCAS is the most common subset of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS), a group of rare autoinflammatory conditions caused by gain-of-function mutations in the NLRP3 gene. Patient enrollment in the Phase 2 trial is complete and we expect to report topline results from the trial at our virtual investor event.
  • VTX3232 (CNS-penetrant NLRP3 Inhibitor): We are conducting a Phase 1 trial of VTX3232 in adult healthy volunteers. The trial is designed to characterize the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of VTX3232 in blood, and is also measuring drug concentration and target engagement in the cerebral spinal fluid. We expect to report topline results from the Phase 1 trial of VTX3232 at our virtual investor event.

    In addition to CAPS, we believe that our portfolio of novel oral NLRP3 inhibitors is well positioned to address a broad range of inflammatory conditions associated with activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome. This includes systemic inflammatory conditions, such as dermatologic, rheumatic and cardiometabolic diseases, including obesity. We also believe that NLRP3 inhibition in the CNS represents a compelling potential therapeutic approach for a range of neuroinflammatory conditions with high unmet medical need, including Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, among others.

Virtual Investor Event

Ventyx will host a virtual investor event on March 11, 2024, to provide key clinical updates on our NLRP3 portfolio, including topline results from the Phase 2 trial of VTX2735 in CAPS and topline results from the Phase 1 trial of VTX3232 in healthy volunteers. We will also provide a clinical update from the ongoing open-label extension of the VTX002 Phase 2 trial in ulcerative colitis. Timing and dial-in details will be announced one week prior to the event.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results:

  • Cash Position: Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $252.2 million as of December 31, 2023. We believe our current cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities are sufficient to fund our planned operations into at least the second half of 2025.
  • Research and Development (R&D) expenses: R&D expenses were $42.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $30.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. R&D expenses were $175.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $87.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2022.
  • General and Administrative (G&A) expenses: G&A expenses were $8.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $8.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. G&A expenses were $32.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $25.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2022.
  • Net loss: Net loss was $46.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $35.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. Net loss was $193.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $108.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2022.
