About GEMPHIRE THERAPEUTICS INC. (NASDAQ:GEMP)
Gemphire Therapeutics Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in the development and commercialization of therapeutics to treat cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. It is developing its product candidate, gemcabene (CI-1027), which is a once-daily, oral therapy for patients who are unable to achieve normal levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) or triglycerides with approved therapies, primarily statin therapy. Gemcabene is liver-directed and inhibits apolipoprotein C-III (apoC-III) protein in the liver and may inhibit acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) in the liver. Gemcabene blocks the overall production of hepatic triglycerides and cholesterol. Gemcabene has been tested as monotherapy and in combination with statins and other drugs in over 895 subjects, across approximately 18 Phase I and Phase II clinical trials. Gemcabene is used as an adjunctive therapy to reduce LDL-C, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and triglycerides.
