Date:8/11/2009

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Chimerix, Inc., a biotechnology company developing orally available antiviral therapeutics, today announced the completion of a $16.1 million Series E financing. Leading life science venture capital investors Canaan Partners, Alta Partners, Sanderling Ventures and Asset Management Company participated in this insider round.

Proceeds from the financing will primarily be used to expand Chimerix's clinical development program for its lead drug candidate, CMX001. CMX001 has shown activity in early clinical studies as a broad-spectrum antiviral drug, and is currently being evaluated for the treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) and BK virus in Phase II clinical trials. CMX001 is also being developed as a biodefense agent for the treatment of smallpox and complications associated with smallpox vaccination. In addition, Chimerix expects to advance CMX157, an anti-HIV drug, into Phase I clinical development and to continue work on a library of compounds that have shown extremely potent activity against a range of viral diseases including hepatitis C.

"We believe that this financing will enable the Chimerix team to continue doing what they do best - identify, optimize and develop important new antiviral medicines that address significant therapeutic markets and may prove valuable in our nation's biodefense strategy."

"We are pleased by the consistent support Chimerix has received from such a premier group of experienced life science investors," said George Painter, Ph.D., Chimerix's President and Chief Execut
