Chiasma to Present at the UBS Global Life Sciences Conference
Date:9/20/2010

NEW YORK and JERUSALEM, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Chiasma, Inc., a privately held biopharma company, announced that Fredric Price, Chiasma's Chairman & CEO, will present an overview of the Company at the UBS Global Life Sciences Conference at the Grand Hyatt, New York, New York, on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 11:00 AM (ET).

Chiasma is currently conducting its second clinical trial of the investigational new drug Octreolin™, an oral form of octreotide acetate that uses the proprietary Transient Permeability Enhancer (TPE) system for the oral treatment of acromegaly, a hormonal disorder that results from an excess of growth hormone.  A third clinical trial is planned to start by the end of 2010. The Food and Drug Administration has granted orphan drug designation for Octreolin and the Company will submit an application for Orphan Medicinal Product Designation to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) shortly.

Upon receipt of positive Phase 3 efficacy and safety data, the Company will submit an NDA using the "505(b)(2) regulatory pathway" in the United States and its equivalent, the "Hybrid Application," in Europe.

Chiasma is also developing Octreolin as a potential treatment for patients with portal hypertension (PHT); there are currently no drugs approved for PHT in the U.S.

About Chiasma

Chiasma is evaluating the TPE technology with approved drugs, which may enable their being switched from injectable to oral, and potentially may also result in new indications or otherwise improved labels.  The TPE technology promotes the delivery of drugs to the GI wall and from there to the liver.  It is applicable to macromolecules that, to date, can be administered only by injection.  TPE can be utilized also with small molecules that are already orally available but are poorly absorbed.  The Company has successfully demonstrated proof-of-principle in delivering small proteins, peptides, saccharides and heretofore-insoluble small molecules via the oral route.

The Company is backed by ARCH Venture Partners, MPM Capital, F2 Ventures, 7 Health Ventures and the MPM Novartis Strategic Fund. Chiasma is a Delaware corporation with a 100% owned Israeli subsidiary. Additional information can be found at:  www.ChiasmaPharma.com.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements about the business, goals and prospects of Chiasma, Inc., including, without limitation, statements about the development of drugs in the TPE system.  These forward-looking statements are predictions and involve risks and uncertainties such that actual results may differ materially from these statements.  Chiasma is under no obligation, and expressly disclaims any obligation, to update or alter any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events o otherwise.
