“ABIVAX is experiencing an exciting time as we have made excellent progress in the development of our product portfolio. Our lead candidate, ABX464, with the potential to induce a functional cure in HIV patients, showed early this year for the first time ever, that a therapeutic candidate could reduce HIV reservoirs in chronically infected patients – an effect which was confirmed with a second phase 2a study in September", said Prof. Hartmut Ehrlich, M.D., CEO of ABIVAX.

In parallel, ABX464 showed also a promising anti-inflammatory effect in the intestine in a preclinical study, and, as a result, we have just started a clinical proof-of-concept study with this molecule in ulcerative colitis,” continued Prof Ehrlich.

“Furthermore, in October we presented the first preclinical proof-of-concept study showing that a second molecule, ABX196, an immune enhancer, significantly increases efficacy of anti-cancer drugs in preclinical models. These exciting data could truly change the company by opening the door to immune-oncology partnerships,” added Prof Ehrlich ughg datals.oputlve ,. Given all this, we strongly believe ABIVAX is passing through a transformative time and I am very much looking forward to discussing future developments and opportunities with investors and industry experts at this important event.”
