SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: KBIO) a biopharmaceutical company with a portfolio of patient-targeted, first-in-class, antibodies to treat serious medical conditions with a primary clinical focus on respiratory diseases and cancer, announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.
"KaloBios marked the first quarter of 2013 with an important milestone in our company's evolution: the successful completion of our initial public offering, with net proceeds to KaloBios of approximately $62 million," said David Pritchard, KaloBios President and Chief Executive Officer. "We also achieved an important clinical milestone this quarter with the start of a Phase 2 trial of KB001-A, our targeted agent against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa), in patients with cystic fibrosis. We were pleased to announce shortly after the quarter's end our partner Sanofi Pasteur's receipt from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of Fast Track Designation for KB001-A intended for protection against bacterial pneumonia caused by Pa in mechanically ventilated patients. Finally, in April, we achieved 50% clinical enrollment for our KB003 Phase 2 asthma study putting us on track for top line results in the first quarter of 2014.
The net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $8.6 million, or $0.55 per basic and diluted share. This compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or $.56 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2012. Increased spending for our clinical trial programs and general and administrative expenses associated with being a public company resulted in the reported loss during the first quarter of 2013. As of March 31, 2013, cash, cash equivalents and investments, excluding restricted cash, totaled $76.9 million.Company Highlights to Date for 2013January

About KaloBiosKaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is developing a portfolio of proprietary, patient-targeted, first-in-class monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) designed to treat serious life-threatening or debilitating disease for which there is an unmet medical need with a clinical focus on serious respiratory diseases and cancer.
Currently, KaloBios has three drug development programs:
All of the company's antibodies were generated using its proprietary Humaneered® technology, a method that converts nonhuman antibodies (typically mouse) into recombinant antibodies that have a high binding affinity to their target and are designed for chronic therapeutic use. The company believes that antibodies produced using its Humaneered® technology offer important clinical and economic advantages over antibodies generated by other methods in terms of high binding affinity, high manufacturing yields, and minimal to no immunogenicity (inappropriate immune response) upon repeat administration in humans.
