Vir Biotechnology Announces Multiple Abstracts Highlighting New Hepatitis B Data Accepted for Presentation at AASLD’s The Liver Meeting® 2022

10/31/22 at 4:05 PM EDT

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vir Biotechnology, Inc. (Nasdaq: VIR) today announced that four abstracts highlighting new data from its hepatitis B virus (HBV) clinical program have been accepted for presentation at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) The Liver Meeting®, taking place in Washington, D.C., from November 4-8, 2022. These include two poster presentations, one of which is a late-breaking poster, and two oral presentations, both of which have been selected by AASLD for inclusion in the “Best of the Liver Meeting” summary.

The first oral presentation will highlight new safety, tolerability and antiviral activity data from the Phase 2 MARCH trial, the first clinical trial combining VIR-2218 and VIR-3434. VIR-2218 is an investigational small interfering ribonucleic acid (siRNA) that diminishes the level of all HBV proteins in vitro, including hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). VIR-3434 is an investigational HBsAg-targeting monoclonal antibody designed to remove HBV virions from the blood and block the entry of the virus into liver cells and potentially act as a therapeutic vaccine.

The second oral presentation will highlight additional safety, efficacy and follow-up data of VIR-2218 alone and in combination with pegylated interferon alfa (PEG-IFNα) in participants with chronic HBV infection.

The first poster presentation will highlight data indicating that a single 75 or 300 mg dose of VIR-3434 is associated with reductions in hepatitis B viral DNA and HBsAg in the majority of viremic participants with chronic HBV infection in the absence of nucleot(s)ide reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) therapy.

The late-breaker poster presentation will focus on the characteristics of chronic hepatitis B patients that were enrolled in a 20-year real-world study of treatment patterns in a U.S. health care delivery system.

About Chronic Hepatitis B
Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains an urgent global public health challenge associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Approximately 300 million people around the world are living with HBV, and approximately 900,000 of them die from associated complications each year. These patients are significantly underserved by existing therapies with low functional cure rates, lifelong daily therapy and poor tolerability. Vir is working to achieve a functional cure for the millions of people with HBV around the world through its broad and differentiated portfolio.

About VIR-2218
VIR-2218 is an investigational subcutaneously administered HBV-targeting siRNA that has the potential to stimulate an effective immune response and have direct antiviral activity against HBV and hepatitis D virus (HDV). It is the first siRNA in the clinic to include Enhanced Stabilization Chemistry Plus (ESC+) technology to enhance stability and minimize off-target activity, which potentially can result in an increased therapeutic index. VIR-2218 is the first asset in the Company’s collaboration with Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to enter clinical trials.

About VIR-3434
VIR-3434 is an investigational subcutaneously administered antibody designed to block entry of HBV and HDV viruses into hepatocytes and to reduce the level of virions and subviral particles in the blood. VIR-3434, which incorporates Xencor’s Xtend™ and other Fc technologies, has been engineered to potentially function as a T cell vaccine against HBV and HDV in infected patients, as well as to have an extended half-life.
