Arrowhead to Present at Series of Upcoming Scientific Conferences: Data Highlights Results Demonstrating Effectiveness of DPC siRNA Delivery System and Path to the Clinic for siRNA-based Hepatitis B Treatment

Pasadena, CA | Posted on May 3rd, 2012

"Arrowhead's DPC delivery system and the associated HBV program have been under development for several years at our Madison site, first as Mirus Bio and then as a subsidiary of Roche. It's been several years since data regarding the programs have been presented to the scientific community at large. We are looking forward to unveiling advanced and exciting results in these forums and to related publications later this year," said Dr. Christopher Anzalone, Arrowhead's CEO & President.

Scheduled conference presentations are as follows:
