HOUSTON, TEXAS (March 7, 2019):

Aravive, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARAV), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative therapies that target important survival pathways for cancer, announced recent corporate updates and financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

“2019 will be an important year for Aravive, with several data readouts expected along with the initiation of two additional studies. Enrollment in the Phase 1b portion of the Phase 1b/2 clinical trial of AVB-S6-500 in patients with platinum-resistant recurrent ovarian cancer is on-track and we are eager to report preliminary data in the third quarter of this year,” said Jay Shepard, president and chief executive officer. “At our KOL event in February, we announced the planned expansion of our pipeline with two additional indications, clear cell renal cell carcinoma and IgA nephropathy. We remain committed to further exploring the potential of our platform in the treatment for both oncology and fibrotic indications.”

Recent Corporate Updates


AVB-S6-500 is a novel, high-affinity, soluble Fc-fusion protein designed to block the activation of the GAS6-AXL signaling pathway by intercepting the binding of GAS6 to its receptor AXL. AXL receptor signaling plays an important role in multiple types of malignancies by promoting metastasis, cancer cell survival, resistance to treatments, and immune suppression. The GAS6-AXL signaling pathway also plays a significant role in fibrogenesis. Below are some recent highlights from the program:
