VANCOUVER, B.C. and DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arbutus Biopharma Corporation (Nasdaq:ABUS), an industry-leading Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) therapeutic solutions company, today announced its third quarter 2016 unaudited financial results and provided a corporate update.

“This was an important quarter as we reported interim results from our ARB-1467 Phase II trial demonstrating significant HBsAg reduction in chronically infected HBV patients. These promising multi-dose data are the first of their kind for an RNAi HBV product candidate, and we plan to release additional data from this trial by year-end,” said Dr. Mark J. Murray, Arbutus’ President and CEO. “We are focused on our strategy of developing a combination therapy, which is supported by our cash runway and potential opportunities to monetize our proprietary lipid nanoparticle (LNP) platform delivery technology.”
