BOSTON, Aug. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — X4 Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: XFOR), a leader in the discovery and development of novel CXCR4-targeted small-molecule therapeutics to benefit people with diseases of the immune system, today announced that it will host an investor webinar to present and discuss new data from its Phase 1b trial evaluating its lead clinical candidate, mavorixafor, in patients with idiopathic, cyclic, and congenital neutropenia.
The event will include perspectives from patients and clinical experts on the unmet medical need and the opportunity for innovative treatment development. Members of X4 Pharmaceuticals’ management team will present clinical data on 25 patients from this fully enrolled trial and discuss mavorixafor’s potential to treat broader chronic neutropenia populations beyond its lead indication in Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Infections, and Myelokathexis (WHIM) syndrome. A live Q&A will follow the formal presentations.
Date: Tuesday, September 27, 2022Time: 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. ETTo register for the event: Link
Following the conclusion of the live webcast, a replay of the event will be available within the investors’ section of the X4 Pharmaceuticals website at www.x4pharma.com.
About the Phase 1b Clinical TrialThe clinical trial (NCT04154488) is a proof-of-concept Phase 1b open-label, multicenter study designed to assess the safety and tolerability of daily, oral mavorixafor with or without G-CSF, in participants with chronic neutropenic disorders including severe congenital, idiopathic, or cyclic neutropenia. Participants were dosed with a single dose of oral mavorixafor to assess the magnitude of treatment response.
About X4 PharmaceuticalsX4 Pharmaceuticals is a late-stage clinical biopharmaceutical company leading the discovery and development of novel therapies for people with diseases of the immune system. Our lead clinical candidate is mavorixafor, a first-in-class, small molecule antagonist of chemokine receptor CXCR4 that is being developed as a once-daily oral therapy. Due to mavorixafor’s ability to antagonize CXCR4 and improve the healthy maturation and mobilization of white blood cells, we believe that mavorixafor has the potential to provide therapeutic benefit across a wide variety of immune system diseases, including a range of chronic neutropenic disorders and certain types of cancer. The efficacy and safety of mavorixafor are being evaluated in a global Phase 3 clinical trial in patients with WHIM syndrome, a rare, inherited, primary immunodeficiency disease caused primarily by genetic mutations in the CXCR4 receptor gene. We are also studying mavorixafor in two Phase 1b clinical trials – one in patients with chronic neutropenic disorders including congenital, idiopathic, and cyclic neutropenia, and one concurrently with ibrutinib in patients with Waldenstr?m’s macroglobulinemia (WM), a rare B-cell lymphoma. Further clinical development of mavorixafor in WM will now be subject to completing a strategic partnership as we focus our resources on advancing mavorixafor for the benefit of patients with chronic neutropenic disorders. We continue to leverage our insights into CXCR4 biology at our corporate headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts and at our research facility in Vienna, Austria.
