Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.


See “Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition” above.


The Company is using the slides attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K in connection with management presentations to describe additional data from its RESOLVE-1 Phase 3 study of lenabasum for the treatment of systemic sclerosis.


The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K under Items 2.02 and 7.01, including the information contained in Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, is being furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission, and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, except as shall be expressly set forth by a specific reference in such filing.


Item 8.01. Other Events.


On November 9, 2020, the Company presented additional data from its RESOLVE-1 Phase 3 study of lenabasum for the treatment of systemic sclerosis, as summarized below:


Modified intent-to-treat population (n = 363):


  Stable doses of background immunosuppressant therapies were allowed in both lenabasum and placebo arms, reflecting current clinical practice.
  84% of RESOLVE-1 subjects were on background immunosuppressant therapies.
  As previously reported, median American College of Rheumatology Combined Response Index for Systemic Sclerosis (ACR CRISS) scores at Week 52 were 0.888 versus 0.887, for lenabasum 20 mg twice daily (n = 120) versus placebo (n = 123).


Placebo group (n = 123):


  Unprecedented improvement was seen in the placebo group in subjects who were concurrently receiving stable doses of background immunosuppressant therapies, especially subjects in their first two years on these therapies.
  Subjects treated with background mycophenolate had the greatest improvement over the one-year RESOLVE-1 study.


Post-hoc analyses of lenabasum 20 mg twice daily group compared to placebo group:


  In subjects receiving established background immunosuppressant therapies (> 2 years duration at baseline), lenabasum treatment (n = 38) versus placebo (n = 26) was associated with reduced decline in forced vital capacity (FVC) at one year, measured in milliliters (-21 mL versus -170 mL, nominal P = 0.048) or percent predicted (-0.4% versus -4.6%, nominal P = 0.039).
  Data from these subjects were also categorized as follows: FVC % decline (worsening by more than -5%), stable FVC % (values within 5% of baseline value) and improved FVC % (improvement more than 5%). Lenabasum 20 mg twice daily was associated with a lower likelihood of a decline (19% lenabasum versus 50% placebo), greater likelihood to have stable FVC % predicted (64% lenabasum versus 35% placebo), and similar likelihood in improvement (17% lenabasum versus 15% placebo, nominal P = 0.035).
  In a subset of these subjects with diagnosed interstitial/restrictive lung disease (ILD), lenabasum 20 mg twice daily was associated with numerically reduced decline in FVC at one year (-14 mL versus -121 mL and -0.3% versus -3.5%), lenabasum (n = 32) versus placebo (n = 20). ILD was identified by fibrosis on chest x-ray or computerized tomography of the lungs or baseline FVC < 80% predicted.


Safety findings:


  Lenabasum was safely administered and well tolerated in this study, with no new safety findings. Dizziness (18.3% lenabasum versus 4.9% placebo) and dry mouth (5.0% lenabasum versus 1.6% placebo) were among adverse events that occurred in ≥ 3% more subjects in the lenabasum 20 mg twice daily group versus the placebo group. No evidence of lenabasum-associated immunosuppression was seen.
