ClearB Therapeutics Announces Upcoming Poster Presentations of Pre-Clinical Hepatitis B Data at AASLD 2022

CONCORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ClearB Therapeutics, Inc., a company developing CLB-3000, a therapeutic vaccine designed to drive functional cure in patients chronically infected with Hepatitis B, announced today that two abstracts were accepted for poster presentation at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD), The Liver Meeting, to be held in Washington, DC, USA, November 4 – 8, 2022.

“We are excited to continue to make the Hepatitis B community aware of our progress for the therapeutic vaccine candidate CLB-3000, toward first in human trials and our confidence in this novel and differentiated approach” said Aileen Rubio, PhD., CEO for the company. Chronic infection with Hepatitis B (CHB) remains a significant global disease infecting hundreds of millions of people, where functional cure remains elusive and combination therapies are likely needed. We believe that re-education of patients’ immune systems to break tolerance of their chronic HBV infections through administration of ClearB’s therapeutic vaccine could become an important component of combination treatment regimens.”
