Chimerix Announces BK Virus Data In Late-Breaking Poster Session At The 24th International Congress Of The Transplantation Society
Date:7/9/2012

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Chimerix, Inc., a biotechnology company developing orally-available antiviral therapeutics, today announced a late-breaking poster presentation at the 24th International Congress of the Transplantation Society being held July 15-19th, 2012 at the International Congress Centre Berlin in Berlin, Germany.  The poster presentation, entitled "CMX001, a Novel Broad Spectrum Antiviral, May Mitigate Signs of BK Virus (BKV) Associated Bladder and Kidney End-Organ Damage," is part of the Late Breaking Abstracts session on Monday, July 16th from 12:15-13:30 pm in the Stockholm room.

Herve Mommeja-Marin, MD, Vice President of Clinical Research at Chimerix, will present the data from Study 201, Chimerix's Phase 2 study evaluating CMX001 for the prevention of cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease in hematopoietic stem cells transplant (HSCT) recipients.  Phase 2 results presented elsewhere have shown that CMX001, at various doses, was active and well-tolerated in the prevention of CMV infection or disease.  This new retrospective analysis focuses on BK virus and shows that CMX001 may prevent end-organ damage in subjects who had BKV infection in the urine upon initiation of therapy.

About Chimerix Chimerix is developing novel antiviral therapeutics with the potential to improve quality of life for patients in multiple settings, including transplant, oncology, acute care and global health.  The company's proprietary lipid technology platform has given rise to Chimerix's two clinical stage compounds, CMX001 and CMX157, which have demonstrated the potential for enhanced activity, bioavailability and safety compared to currently approved drugs. 

Chimerix's lead candidate, CMX001, is a novel, broad spectrum nucleoside analog that is anabolized intracellularly and inhibits double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) viruses including CMV, adenovirus (AdV), BKV, and herpes simplex virus.  CMX001 has
