Galectin Therapeutics Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Galectin Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq:GALT), the leading developer of therapeutics that target galectin proteins to treat fibrosis and cancer, today reported its financial results for the second quarter and first six months ended June 30, 2013. These results are included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"During the second quarter, we continued preparing for our Phase 1 clinical trial of GR-MD-02 for patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH or fatty liver disease) with advanced fibrosis and in July, we successfully dosed the first patient. Additionally, we recently announced the FDA has granted Fast Track status for GR-MD-02 for NASH. The successful first patient dosing in the clinical trial of GR-MD-02 and Fast Track designation are critical milestones in Galectin's development program and there are currently no treatments for fatty liver disease with advanced fibrosis; these milestones take us closer to bringing a first-in-class treatment to the millions of Americans suffering from this silent epidemic," said Peter G. Traber, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, President and Chief Medical Officer, Galectin Therapeutics. "This first-in-man study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and exploratory biomarkers for efficacy for single and multiple doses of GR-MD-02 when administered to patients with fatty liver disease with advanced fibrosis, and we expect top line clinical results for Phase 1 sometime late in 2013 or early 2014."

At June 30, 2013, the Company had $5.1 million of non-restricted cash and cash equivalents available to fund future operations. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company received $2.4 million from the exercise of warrants. The Company believes that the cash on hand at quarter end and received subsequently is sufficient to fund operations and planned research and development through the first quarter of 2014. The Company is currently exploring and evaluating several alternatives for obtaining additional funding.
