Lumos Pharma Reports Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results, Provides Clinical Update
•Confirms Timing for Primary Outcome Data Readout for two Phase 2 OraGrowtH Trials in Q4 2023
•Late Breaking Abstract Accepted for Oral Presentation at ESPE 2023
•Encouraging Interim Data from OraGrowtH Trials Presented at ENDO 2023, Highlighted in KOL Webinar
•Conference Call Scheduled for Today at 4:30pm ET
AUSTIN, TX, August 9, 2023 – Lumos Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:LUMO), a biopharmaceutical company advancing an oral therapeutic candidate for Pediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency (PGHD) through Phase 2 clinical trials, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.
“We are pleased to confirm our expectation for primary data readout from our two Phase 2 OraGrowtH Trials evaluating LUM-201 in idiopathic PGHD in the fourth quarter of 2023,” said Rick Hawkins, Chairman and CEO of Lumos Pharma. “The primary endpoint for these trials is annualized height velocity at six months on treatment with LUM-201. Given the encouraging data and new analysis presented at ENDO and highlighted in the Key Opinion Leader (KOL) webinar we hosted in June, our convictions are further reinforced that at least one of the LUM-201 dose cohorts will meet growth expectations based on historical averages, and that the LUM-201 mechanism of action and potency can elicit sustained improvements in growth in the moderate PGHD patient population. We look forward to additional analysis of LUM-201 data to be presented at the upcoming ESPE conference in September, and to continuing to advance our LUM-201 clinical program for potentially the first oral therapeutic for PGHD.”
•Company reiterates Q4 2023 timing for primary outcome data readout of OraGrowtH210 & OraGrowtH212 Trials
◦Primary endpoint is annualized height velocity (AHV) at 6 months on treatment with the prediction of growth of 8.3 to 8.6 cm/yr based on historical data for this moderate idiopathic PGHD population
◦Other objectives of the OraGrowtH210 Trial are to confirm the utility of the predictive enrichment marker (PEM) strategy and determine the optimal dose for a Phase 3 trial
◦Up to 82 subjects (approximately 20 per cohort) were enrolled in the OraGrowtH210 Trial
◦Up to 22 subjects (approximately 11 per cohort) were enrolled in the OraGowtH212 Trial
◦AHV data at 12 months on treatment is expected for up to 12 subjects per OraGrowtH210 cohort and up to 7 subjects per OraGrowtH212 cohort, for a total of up to 62 subjects from both trials
◦Additional AHV data at 18 and 24 months on treatment are also expected for a small number of subjects
◦As with all Phase 2 trials in PGHD, OraGrowtH210 is not powered to show non-inferiority of AHV between LUM-201 and the control; these Phase 2 data will support the safety profile and the selection of a LUM-201 dose for Phase 3 wherein non-inferiority to a control rhGH arm of < 2 cm should determine success based on historical approvals.
•Data abstract accepted for oral presentation at upcoming European Society of Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) annual meeting, September 21-23, 2023, in The Hague, Netherlands
◦Late-breaking abstract—Deconvolution Analysis: GH secretagogue (LUM-201) enhances growth in individuals with moderate idiopathic Pediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency (iPGHD) by enhancing endogenous GH secretion and increasing IGF-1, (Fernando Cassorla, MD)—accepted for oral presentation Saturday, September 23 (9:30-10:30 AM CET)
•Positive results from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) study of injectable growth hormone in NAFLD published in Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism – Data support MGH pilot trial evaluating oral LUM-201 in same indication
◦Growth Hormone Administration Improves Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Overweight/Obesity: A Randomized Trial—Dichtel, et al.
▪Investigators hypothesized that growth hormone may reduce hepatic steatosis in obese subjects with NAFLD
▪Subjects were randomly assigned to a treatment group (27 GH; 26 placebo), with 41 completers (20 GH and 21 placebo) at 6 months.
▪Reduction in absolute % Intrahepatic Lipid (IHL) content by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy was significantly greater in the GH vs placebo cohorts
◦Investigators concluded that GH reduces liver fat without commensurate weight loss; data support evaluation of oral LUM-201 in the same indication (NAFLD)
◦The LUM-201 pilot trial in NAFLD continues to enroll; the Company’s primary near-term focus remains on advancing LUM-201 in PGHD
•New LUM-201 data and analysis presented at ENDO 2023, highlighted in KOL webinar
◦Data from two oral presentations presented at ENDO were highlighted by two distinguished KOLs in a webinar held on June 21, 2023. Details included:
◦New data from the OraGrowtH212 Trial showed an increase in IGF-1 levels on LUM-201 at 6 months that remained within normal range, an increase in IGF-1 SDS to > 0, and a durable growth response after 12 months of LUM-201 administration; clear evidence of potential drug effect for LUM-201 was also observed in consistent improvement in AHV over baseline
◦New analysis of combined OraGrowtH210 and OraGrowtH212 trial data at the 1.6 mg/kg/day and 3.2mg/kg/day dose levels (15 subjects from OraGrowtH212, 20 subjects from OraGrowtH210): results continue to demonstrate that there is a durable response to LUM-201 from 6 to 12 months
◦A replay of the webinar is here and the presented slides are available here
Financial Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2023
Cash Position – Lumos Pharma ended the quarter on June 30, 2023 with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $50.9 million compared to $67.4 million on December 31, 2022.

About Lumos Pharma’s Clinical Trials
Phase 2 OraGrowtH210 Trial of Oral LUM-201 in PGHD
The OraGrowtH210 Trial is a multi-site, global trial evaluating orally administered LUM-201 at three dose levels (0.8, 1.6, 3.2 mg/kg/day) against a standard dose of injectable rhGH in approximately 80 subjects diagnosed with idiopathic (moderate) PGHD, which is less severe than organic PGHD. The objective of this trial is to identify the optimal dose of LUM-201 to be used in a Phase 3 registration trial, based on annualized height velocity from a 6-month dataset, and to prospectively confirm the preliminary validation of our Predictive Enrichment Marker (PEM) strategy. The complete set of 6-month, primary outcome data for 82 subjects is anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2023. Subjects will be dosed for a total of 24 months.
OraGrowtH212 Trial Evaluating PK/PD and Pulsatility of Oral LUM-201 in PGHD
The OraGrowtH212 Trial is a single site, open-label trial evaluating the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of oral LUM-201 in up to 24 PGHD subjects at two dose levels, 1.6 and 3.2 mg/kg/day. The primary objective of the OraGrowtH212 Trial is to confirm prior clinical data demonstrating the amplified pulsatile release of endogenous growth hormone from LUM-201 therapy, contributes to its efficacy in PGHD. The primary endpoint for this trial is 6 months of PK/PD (pulsatility) and height velocity data in the randomized subjects. Subjects will be allowed to remain on treatment until
they reach a bone age of 14 for females and 16 for males reflecting near-adult height. Primary data readout in 22 subjects is anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Switch Study, OraGrowtH213 Trial, Evaluating LUM-201 in OraGrowtH210 Subjects Previously on rhGH
The OraGrowtH213 Trial is an open-label, multi-center, Phase 2 study evaluating the growth effects and safety of LUM-201 following 12 months of daily rhGH in up to 20 idiopathic PGHD patients who have completed the OraGrowtH210 Trial. Subjects will be administered LUM-201 at a dose level of 3.2 mg/kg/day for up to 12 months.
Lumos Pharma Collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital Evaluating LUM-201 in NAFLD
Lumos Pharma has entered a collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to evaluate LUM-201 in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). GH is a critical stimulator of lipolysis, and shows anti-inflammatory effects, and preclinical data suggest that amplifying GH secretion has the potential to reduce hepatic steatosis and prevent NAFLD progression. Interestingly, enhancing the natural pulsatile release of GH has been shown clinically in short-term studies to be more efficacious in inducing lipolysis than continuous infusions of GH. This MGH investigator-initiated trial is a single-site, 6-month, open-label pilot study of daily oral LUM-201 in adults with NAFLD. The trial will evaluate a dose of 25 mg/day of LUM-201 in 10 subjects with NAFLD and relative IGF-1 deficiency. The primary endpoints will be to determine the reduction in liver lipid content, inflammation, and fibrosis in these subjects administered LUM-201 compared to each subject’s baseline.
