PolarityTE (NASDAQ: PTE) reported Q1 EPS of ($0.12), in-line with the analyst estimate of ($0.12). Revenue for the quarter came in at $4.71 million versus the consensus estimate of $3.3 million.

David Seaburg, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The decision to wind down our commercial effort is based on the end of FDA’s stated period of enforcement discretion, and given our pending IND submission, to complete our transition to a clinical stage biotech company. I am incredibly grateful to the commercial team for what they have achieved through their dedication to SkinTE, and to the many providers who have successfully treated patients suffering from debilitating wounds of various types. With a limited team of just eight sales representatives, we reported record SkinTE sales of $1.73 million in the first quarter of 2021. This is not only a testament to the true potential of SkinTE, but to the amazing talent of all those involved with the product.” Mr. Seaburg continued, “Because many HCPs have already witnessed the benefits SkinTE can offer patients with challenging, hard to heal wounds, we are committed to exploring opportunities for physicians to continue to treat patients in need through compassionate use programs, such as FDA’s Expanded Access IND program.”

Richard Hague, President & COO, commented, “Our team firmly believes that a successful BLA for SkinTE will create a highly valuable asset based on the clinical data that will support our eventual BLA submission, which should drive widespread adoption, enable favorable payer coverage and clear marketing claims, and provide regulatory exclusivity if SkinTE is deemed a reference product. With over 1,200 clinical uses of SkinTE to date and many positive outcomes, we look forward to submitting an IND and commencing the clinical trials that will support our BLA, so that many more patients can benefit from treatment with SkinTE.”
