Date:7/21/2014

ROCKVILLE, Md., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Synthetic Biologics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SYN), a developer of novel anti-infective biologic and drug candidates targeting specific pathogens that cause serious infections and diseases, today announced that Jennifer Maynard, Ph.D., of The University of Texas at Austin's McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering will highlight Synthetic Biologics' SYN-005 monoclonal antibody (mAb) combination for the treatment of Pertussis (whooping cough) in a poster presentation. Dr. Maynard is scheduled to present at the Microbial Toxins & Pathogenicity conference held by Gordon Research Conferences on July 20-25, 2014, in Waterville Valley, NH.
