SAN DIEGO, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Revelation Biosciences Inc. (NASDAQ: REVB) (the “Company” or “Revelation”), a clinical-stage life sciences company that is focused on the development of immunologic‑based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease, today reported its second quarter 2022 financial results and highlighted recent corporate progress.
Recent Corporate Progress
- Most recently in July, we completed a $5 million public offering.
- We continue to explore the possible effects of REVTx-99b for the treatment of allergies.
- Data from our preclinical and Phase 2 viral challenge clinical study (RVL-VRL01) suggest intranasal REVTx-200 may positively augment the immune response relative to vaccination alone and we anticipate preclinical data during the fourth quarter.
- We anticipate preclinical data for REVTx-300 as a potential therapy for the treatment of chronic organ disease including chronic kidney disease (CKD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) later this year during the fourth quarter.
“2022 has been a busy year for Revelation, starting with Revelation becoming a publicly traded company” said James Rolke, Chief Executive Officer of Revelation. “We remain committed to the development of our PHAD based product candidates including REVTx-99b for management of allergies, REVTx-200 for improved vaccinations, and REVTx-300 for chronic organ disease, as well as REVDx-501, our universal at-home screening test for respiratory viral infection.”
Results of Operations
As of June 30, 2022, Revelation had $3.5 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $1.3 million as of December 31, 2021. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to net cash received from financing activities, offset primarily by cash used for operating activities. Based on current operating plans and projections, including the proceeds of the recent public offering, Revelation believes that its current cash and cash equivalents are sufficient to fund operations through June of 2023.
Revelation’s net cash used for operating activities for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 was $3.7 million and $8.5 million, respectively, compared to net cash used for operating activities of $3.6 million and $6.0 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2021. Revelation’s net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 was $1.8 million and $8.5 million, or $0.12 per share and $0.58 per share, respectively, compared to a net loss of $2.5 million and $5.1 million, or $0.39 per share and $1.61 per share, for the same periods in 2021.
The increases in net cash used for operating activities and net loss in 2022 as compared to 2021 were primarily due to clinical study expenses associated with our Phase 2b viral challenge clinical study (REVTx-99a) and our Phase 1b allergen challenge study (REVTx-99b), financial advisory fees, legal fees, professional consulting service fees, and the public company directors and officers insurance policy.
