Chimerix to Present at Upcoming Investor Conferences

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Chimerix, Inc., a biotechnology company developing orally-available antiviral therapeutics, announced today that Kenneth I. Moch, President and Chief Executive Officer, will present at two upcoming investor conferences:  the 9th Annual Needham Healthcare Conference, 9:00 AM ET, June 9, 2010, and the Jefferies 2010 Global Life Sciences Conference, 12:45 PM ET, June 11, 2010. The conferences are being held in New York City.

Mr. Moch will provide a corporate overview, including an update on the company's clinical-stage candidates, CMX001 and CMX157.  CMX001 is an orally-available, broad-spectrum antiviral being developed for the treatment of dsDNA viral infections in immunocompromised patients.  The compound is in Phase 1 and 2 clinical trials for the treatment of cytomegalovirus and BK virus.  CMX157, a novel lipid conjugate of the drug tenofovir, was created to improve upon the efficacy and safety of the prodrug Viread®, the leading nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) used in the treatment of HIV patients.  CMX157, which is in Phase 1 clinical trials, is being developed for its potential to reduce systemic toxicity and enable the development of one-pill once-a-day fixed dose anti-HIV combinations.
