We are providing the following business update.

Recent Developments

On September 14, 2022, the Company announced topline results from the Phase 2
clinical trial of ELX-02 in combination with ivacaftor in Class 1 CF patients
with at least one nonsense mutation. The combination trial of ELX-02 with
ivacaftor was well tolerated but did not achieve statistical significance for
efficacy endpoints, including changes from baseline in sweat chloride
concentration (SCC) and percent forced expiratory volume (FEV1).

The Phase 2 combination clinical trial of ELX-02 was designed to evaluate safety
and assess biological activity in G542X nonsense mutation Class 1 CF patients as
monotherapy and in combination with ivacaftor. The trial included a 1-week
monotherapy period (1.5 mg/kg daily subcutaneous) followed by a four week
combination period (1.5 mg/kg daily subcutaneous and 150 mg ivacaftor twice

ELX-02 was generally well tolerated in the trial, with no treatment-related
serious adverse events noted. Overall, the study did not achieve statistical
significance for efficacy endpoints in the Phase 2 study in Class 1 CF for
efficacy endpoints, including changes from baseline in SCC and FEV1. No
incremental improvement was observed with ivacaftor combination. Evidence of
activity for ELX-02 was observed, as patients with higher baseline sweat
chloride levels demonstrated increased responses as indicated by SCC (p=0.00013
at Day 35). Trial results were potentially confounded by high variability in
sweat chloride and lung function measurement. The Company believes this
variability could have been caused by very low drug exposures in the lung.
Steady state lung drug levels in patients from this trial were on average 20%,
or 2µM, of the lowest levels at which drug activity has previously been seen in
preclinical testing. Lung drug exposure with inhaled delivery of ELX-02 is
expected to be at least 50-fold greater than with subcutaneous delivery.
