MILFORD, Mass., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring Bank Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative medicines for the treatment of viral infections, today announced it has closed on a $10.5 million Series A financing.  Proceeds will be used to fund Phase I clinical development of SB 9200, a novel, orally available treatment for Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and to further the preclinical pipeline. The Company plans to conduct a Phase I safety and antiviral efficacy study of SB 9200 in healthy, HCV-infected patients beginning in the first quarter of 2013.
