Galectin Therapeutics reports Q2 EPS (6c), two est. (12c).
Harold H. Shlevin, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Galectin Therapeutics, said, "Over the past several months we have made significant progress advancing our proprietary compound, belapectin for a Phase 3 trial. After having raised approximately $44.9 million in our Rights Offering and selecting a leading global CRO with deep experience in our therapeutic area and operations in over 60 countries as our clinical research organization, we recently submitted our Phase 3 clinical trial protocols to the FDA for comment along with a draft Phase 4 synopsis and statistical analysis plan. In addition, we announced that Dr. Naga Chalasani and Dr. Stephen Harrison, key NASH opinion leaders, who dedicated considerable effort in the design of the study, have been designated as co-primary investigators in the Phase 3 NASH-RX clinical trial. Consequently, we believe all of the elements to commence this important study are solidly in place. Belapectin is the first drug to show positive results in a clinical trial in patients with compensated NASH cirrhosis without esophageal varices, and it is with great optimism that we anticipate a fourth quarter launch of this very important trial."
