BOSTON, Nov. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zafgen, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZFGN), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to significantly improving the health and well-being of patients affected by metabolic diseases including type 2 diabetes and obesity, today announced its third quarter 2016 financial results.

“We have leveraged our experience with the MetAP2 pathway to develop ZGN-1061, a second-generation molecule that we believe is optimized to harness the powerful benefits of MetAP2 inhibition while minimizing the potential for adverse events,” said Thomas Hughes, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Zafgen. “We are focused on advancing development of this highly differentiated compound, and expect to report top-line results from our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of ZGN-1061 in the first quarter of 2017. These results will further elucidate the candidate’s key differentiators relative to our first-generation MetAP2 inhibitor, and help inform the doses, design, and patient populations for our Phase 2 clinical program."
