Aridis Pharmaceuticals Inc. Key Developments

Aridis Pharmaceuticals Inc. Appoints Craig Gibbs to Board of Directors

Aridis Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced the appointment of former Gilead Sciences executive Craig Gibbs, Ph.D., MBA, to its Board of Directors. Dr. Gibbs currently serves on the Board of Directors of Tobira Therapeutics and is an advisor to several biotechnology companies and venture capital firms.

Aridis Pharmaceuticals Commences Phase 1 Clinical Study of Aerucin™ Monoclonal Antibody for Acute Pneumonia

Aridis Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced the initiation of a Phase 1 clinical study of Aerucin™, the Company's fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) against Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria, which is being developed as an adjunctive treatment for acute pneumonia. Aerucin has also filed for Orphan Disease Designation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the United States and in Europe. The clinical trial, expected to complete in the third quarter of 2015, is a Phase 1 single ascending dose study in healthy volunteers. Advancing to this stage of development represents the culmination of longstanding collaborations with Harvard University and the National Institutes of Health. Aerucin directly binds the alginate polysaccharide on the cell surface of P. aeruginosa. It was discovered using Aridis' proprietary MabIgX® technology by screening human B-cells for antibodies that demonstrated improved immune recognition and phagocytic destruction of more than 90% of all Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Earlier preclinical studies of Aerucin support both therapeutic and prophylactic use of the monoclonal antibody.
