Date:2/19/2013

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chimerix, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company developing novel, oral antivirals in areas of high unmet medical need, today released data from presentations at the BMT Tandem Meetings supporting the broad spectrum antiviral activity and emerging safety profile of CMX001.  CMX001 is an oral nucleotide lipid-conjugate anticipated to start a Phase 3 study later this year.

These data were presented during the Allogeneic Transplants Poster Session at the BMT Tandem Meetings in Salt Lake City on Saturday, February 16, 2013.

The three presentations included:
