Calithera Biosciences, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results And Recent Highlights

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 09, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calithera Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:CALA), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing novel small molecule drugs directed against tumor metabolism and tumor immunology targets for the treatment of cancer, announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. As of September 30, 2015, cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $81.9 million.

“In the third quarter, we continued to move clinical programs forward with presentations of data at key medical meetings,” said Susan Molineaux, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Calithera. “We presented dose expansion monotherapy cohorts for our lead product CB-839 at the AACR-EORTC-NCI meeting, and we are currently opening enrollment across six combination cohorts. For our lead immuno-oncology program, we presented initial preclinical data for CB-1158, an oral, small molecule arginase inhibitor with the potential to treat cancer by blocking the immunosuppression of the tumor micro-environment. We believe that we have multiple opportunities to positively impact clinical outcomes for cancer patients by building a pipeline of novel therapeutic product candidates.”
