Idera Pharmaceuticals to Present at Upcoming Conferences - Jan 11, 2021

EXTON, Pa., Jan. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDRA) today announced that it will provide a company outlook for 2021 at upcoming conferences.

“2021 represents a pivotal inflection point for Idera, one in which we anticipate that data soon to be available from our ILLUMINATE program will show that tilsotolimod, the most advanced TLR9 agonist therapy in development, can offer meaningful alternatives to patients suffering from advanced anti-PD-1 refractory melanoma and, potentially, colorectal cancer,” stated Vincent Milano, Idera’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’re looking forward to sharing topline response data from ILLUMINATE-301 late in this quarter and a data update from ILLUMINATE-206 in the third quarter of the year.”

Continued Mr. Milano, “Our entire team is driven by our goal of making a difference for patients and is unified in its persistence to help ensure the quality of our clinical results, NDA and commercial readiness, and a strong financial outlook that includes existing cash that is expected to take us into the first quarter of 2022. We have confidence that this is the year Idera will deliver on its long history of innovative science and begin to turn that history into a business reality.”

The Company plans to share further corporate and ILLUMINATE program updates at the following conferences in January:

  • 39th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, January 11-14, 2021
    Presentation on January 13, 2021, 3:40 pm EST
  • H.C. Wainwright BioConnect 2021 Conference, January 11-14, 2021
