MENDHAM, NJ – Nov. 3, 2021 – Antios Therapeutics, Inc. (“Antios”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapies to treat and cure chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV), today announced the successful closing of a $75 million Series B-1 financing. The financing round was co-led by GordonMD Global Investments, a firm focused on investments in private and publicly traded global growth and innovative biopharma companies primarily located in the United States, Japan, and Europe.
The proceeds from this financing will be used to advance the clinical development of ATI-2173, Antios’ lead Phase 2b clinical candidate. ATI-2173 is the only Active Site Polymerase Inhibitor Nucleotide (ASPIN) in clinical development and has the potential, if approved, to become the cornerstone of a curative, once-daily HBV therapy. Pre-clinical data to date for ATI-2173, alone or combined with tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), indicate the potential for sustained HBV DNA suppression off treatment, unique among approved nucleosides and investigational anti-HBV therapies.
