PROLOR Biotech To Present New Data On Its Long-Acting Human Growth Hormone And Long-Acting Oxyntomodulin At ENDO 2013

SAN FRANCISCO and NES-ZIONA, Israel, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PROLOR Biotech, Inc. (NYSE MKT: PBTH), today announced that the company will present new data on its long-acting human growth hormone (hGH-CTP) in Phase III development for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency and its long acting oxyntomodulin (MOD-6030) in preclinical development for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes at ENDO 2013, the 95th Annual Meeting of the Endocrine Society.PROLOR's scientists will present additional pre-clinical and clinical safety data on hGH-CTP and will discuss its manufacturing process.  Data previously reported by the company confirmed that hGH-CTP appears to be safe and well tolerated and that it has the potential to be administered once-weekly to adults with growth hormone deficiency.  The new data provides further information on the excellent safety and tolerability profile of hGH-CTP in a variety of pre-clinical and clinical studies.  PROLOR recently announced that it has initiated a pivotal Phase III study of hGH-CTP in growth hormone deficient adults.

In addition, PROLOR scientists will make an oral presentation discussing MOD-6030, also known as LA-Oxyntomodulin, the company's long-acting GLP-1 and Glucagon dual agonist with potential for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity.  New pre-clinical data will be presented on MOD-6030's effects on weight reduction and glucose tolerance in animal models.

The PROLOR presentations include the following:

FP02-3:  The Long-Acting Dual GLP-1/Glucagon Agonist, Mod-6030, Improves Glycemic Control and Induces a Prolonged Weight Loss in Diet-Induced Obesity Mice Following a Once-Weekly Administration.  See abstract for more information.

SAT-120:  Metabolic and Safety Parameters of Once-Weekly, CTP-Modified Human Growth Hormone (MOD-4023): Results of a Phase 2 Dose and Frequency Finding Study.  See abstract for more information.

Pre-clinical Characterization of MOD-4023, a Long-Acting Growth Hormone.  See abstract for more information.

SAT-647:  Highly Producing Fed-Batch Manufacturing Process of Long-Acting Human Growth Hormone (MOD-4023) in CHO Cells.  See abstract for more information.

SUN-637:  Development of a Population Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Model Following a Phase II Study of MOD-4023 in Growth Hormone Deficient Adults.  See abstract for more information.

The results of clinical trials in humans may produce results that differ significantly from the results of clinical and other trials in animals. The results of early-stage trials may differ significantly from the results of more developed, later-stage trials. The development of any products using the CTP platform technology could also be affected by a number of other factors, including unexpected safety, efficacy or manufacturing issues, additional time requirements for data analyses and decision making, the impact of pharmaceutical industry regulation, the impact of competitive products and pricing and the impact of patents and other proprietary rights held by competitors and other third parties.  In addition to the risk factors described above, investors should consider the economic, competitive, governmental, technological and other factors discussed in PROLOR's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date the statements were made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements, except as required under applicable law.PROLOR CONTACT:MEDIA CONTACT:Shai Novik, PresidentBarbara LindheimPROLOR Biotech, Inc.BLL Partners, LLCTel: +1 866 644-7811
