Providing an operational update and financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended 31 January 2021, KalVista Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CEO Andrew Crockett says:

“We are making excellent progress in our commitment to providing those with HAE a complete set of oral options to manage their disease. The data announced last month for KVD900 as an oral on-demand therapy were overwhelmingly positive and show that patients don’t have to compromise on efficacy or rely on injectables. We view this data as validation of our work in oral plasma kallikrein inhibition, which also includes KVD824 as a development candidate for an oral prophylactic treatment for HAE. Our next step is to meet with regulatory agencies to finalize the Phase 3 program for KVD900 while we push ahead with preparations to be ready to begin that trial as quickly as possible. We have also filed the IND for a Phase 2 clinical trial of KVD824 and expect to initiate that trial in the second quarter of 2021. The closing of our recent upsized financing puts us in a position to execute on plans across our oral HAE franchise, thanks to a cash balance sufficient to get us to the KVD900 NDA filing.”
