Date:3/4/2013

NEWARK, Del., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iBio, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IBIO)  announced it is proceeding with development of an antibody candidate as a therapeutic against influenza, including highly pathogenic H5N1 strains resistant to drugs such as oseltamivir (marketed as Tamiflu®). This proprietary antibody, which is based upon iBio's iBioLaunch™ technology,  has demonstrated safety and therapeutic efficacy in highly predictive animal models infected with a variety of influenza types, including H5N1.

The influenza antibody was discovered by scientists at Fraunhofer USA Center for Molecular  Biotechnology (Fraunhofer) and is a part of Bio's successful antibody research collaboration with Fraunhofer.  Prior to the discovery of this influenza antibody product candidate, the collaboration has produced rituximab and palivizumab biosimilar candidates.

"We are pleased to further expand our antibody product candidate pipeline, particularly with an important proprietary candidate," said Robert Kay , Chairman and CEO of iBio. "This development continues our strategy to grant royalty-bearing licenses of iBioLaunch technology to others for development of their products using our platform, as we recently announced with Caliber Biotherapeutics for their anti-cancer monoclonal antibody candidate, while we continue to bring forward our own product candidates for self-development and eventual partnership with others."
