Replicor’s oral presentation will take place on December 7, 2017 during Oral Abstract Session VII and will feature updated on-treatment and follow-up clinical data from its ongoing REP 401 trial, which has already demonstrated the unique ability of REP 2139 to achieve HBsAg loss on therapy in a high rate of patients when used with TDF and pegylated interferon, resulting in a functional control of HBV infection (HBsAg < 1IU/mL, HBV DNA < LLOQ) persisting after all therapy is removed (functional remission) in 80% of patients.
