Section 7.01 Disclosure of FD Rules.

At March 21, 2022, Kem Pharm, Inc.a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), has issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing that the Company has completed its analysis of all data from its Phase 1 clinical trial exploring the safety and pharmacokinetics (“PK”) of serdexmethylphenidate (“SDX”) delivered at doses higher than those previously studied. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information contained in this Section 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the requirements of that Section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly provided by specific reference in such filing.

Section 8.01 Other Events.

At March 21, 2022, the company announced that it has completed its analysis of the full data set from its Phase 1 clinical trial exploring the safety and pharmacokinetics of SDX administered at doses higher than those previously studied. SDX, the proprietary prodrug of d-methylphenidate (“d-MPH”), is the sole active pharmaceutical ingredient in KP1077, which the Company is developing as a treatment for idiopathic hypersomnia (“IH”).

The full dataset, which builds on previously reported frontline data on
December 14, 2021, claimed that doses of 240 mg and 360 mg of SDX were well tolerated and produced exposure to d-MPH that appeared to increase proportionally with dose. Mean d-MPH plasma concentrations demonstrated a gradual increase after SDX administration, reaching a broad peak eight to twelve hours after administration, followed by a slight decline thereafter. Increased effects on wakefulness, alertness, hypervigilance, and insomnia were reported by study participants, suggesting that SDX produced targeted pharmacodynamic effects that could benefit patients with IH and other sleep disorders.

The Phase 1 clinical trial of high-dose SDX was a dose-escalation study to determine the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic stimulant effects, and safety of single oral doses of SDX in subjects with a history of high-dose stimulant use. high dose. After screening, subjects were treated with single escalating doses of SDX (240, 360, 480, and 600 mg), each dose being separated by at least 14 days. A total of 14 subjects received at least one dose of SDX with 14, 10, 7, and 2 subjects dosed at 240, 360, 480, and 600 mg, respectively.

Subject-rated pharmacodynamic effects of somnolence/alertness and energy were scored on a visual analogue scale (VAS) at several time points post-dose. The results indicate that VAS scores for sleepiness/alertness (bipolar scale: 0 to 100) increased with dose with maximum effects from early to late afternoon, with the most pronounced effects measured at two highest doses. Similarly, mean VAS scores for feeling energized (unipolar scale: 0-100) increased from mean baseline scores of less than 20 and up to a maximum range of 61-82, at all dose levels. , with the largest effects measured at the two highest levels. doses. Alertness and feeling of energy are relevant pharmacodynamic measures for the treatment of patients with sleep disorders such as IH.

The Company also provided an update on several upcoming milestones for the KP1077 development program. The Company expects to file an Investigational New Drug Application for KP1077 as early as the second quarter of 2022 and then initiate a Phase 2 trial in patients with HI in the second half of 2022. Additionally, we expect to receive the results of an additional trial to assess the relative cardiovascular safety of SDX versus current stimulant treatments also in the second half of 2022.
