NEW YORK, April 10, 2015 – Replicor Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company targeting a cure for patients with chronic hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis D (HDV) infection, today announced that it will present updated clinical data at the Lancet Viral Hepatitis Conference in Shanghai, China from April 10-12, 2015. The data are from studies involving patients with chronic HBV infection who were treated with REP 2139-Ca in combination with immunotherapy and /or entecavir (ETV).
REP 2139-Ca used alone or in combination with Pegasys®, ZADAXIN® or Pegasys® and ETV was safe and well-tolerated and resulted in an antiviral response that was profound and includes: the elimination (up to 7 log reduction to LLOQ) of HBsAg in the blood seroconversion for both HBsAg and HBeAg and, the elimination (up to 6 log reduction to LLOQ) of serum HBV DNA. These clinical trials indicated that REP 2139-Ca appears to significantly increase the 12-month SVR rate achieved compared to existing therapies.
Replicor’s poster presentation will be available on the company’s website at the end of the conference at www.replicor.com/science/conference-presentations. For more information on the 2015 Lancet Viral Hepatitis Meeting: www.asianoncologysummit.com/vhep-summit.asp
