RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Chimerix, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company advancing orally-available antiviral therapeutics to address life-threatening diseases, announced today that Kenneth I.

Mr. Moch will give an update on the company's pipeline and technology assets, including CMX001, a broad-spectrum antiviral being developed for the treatment of a wide range of infections caused by double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) viruses.  CMX001 is in Phase 2 clinical studies in immunocompromised transplant and cancer patients for the treatment of dsDNA viruses, including cytomegalovirus and adenovirus.

About Chimerix and CMX001

Chimerix is developing novel antiviral therapeutics with the potential to transform patient care in multiple settings, including transplant, oncology, acute care and global health.  

The company's lead candidate, CMX001, is in Phase 2 clinical studies in immunocompromised transplant and cancer patients for the treatment of life-threatening viruses, including cytomegalovirus and adenovirus.  Over 300 people have received CMX001 to date.  CMX001 has been well tolerated in all studies, with a growing body of evidence of the compound's antiviral activity in humans.  CMX001 has been administered to more than 200 people, including healthy volunteers and patients, in Chimerix's ongoing placebo-controlled studies.  In addition, at the request of leading physicians at over 45 medical centers throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Israel, CMX001 has been administered to more than 100 patients under investigator-held Emergency Investigational New Drug applications (EINDs) for the treatment of a wide range of infections caused by dsDNA viruses for which there are either no approved treatments or where patients have failed the available treatment.  To date, CMX001 has been used to treat patients with 12 different dsDNA viral infections across all five families of dsDNA viruses that affect humans. CMX001 is also being developed as a medical countermeasure in the event of a smallpox release.  Chimerix has received significant funding from the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease to develop CMX001 for smallpox.  

Chimerix's second clinical-stage antiviral compound, CMX157, has completed Phase 1 clinical studies.  CMX157 is in development as a potent nucleoside analogue against multi-drug resistant HIV infections.  

Led by a world-class antiviral drug development team, Chimerix is also leveraging the company's extensive chemical library to pursue new treatments for hepatitis C virus, malaria and other global public health needs.  For additional information on Chimerix, please visit
