Watertown, Mass., March 15, 2019 - Selecta Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SELB), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on unlocking the full potential of biologic therapies based on its immune tolerance platform technology, ImmTOR, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018 and provided a corporate update.
“During 2018 we laid a strong groundwork for a year of execution in 2019. We kicked off the year by streamlining the company through a corporate restructuring, which is projected to cut our cash burn rate by 19%. We then completed an equity fundraise of approximately $33 million in gross proceeds and $31.3 million in net proceeds, and anticipate reporting key milestones for both our chronic refractory gout and gene therapy programs. We continue to believe that our lead program, SEL-212, has the potential to address several unmet needs in chronic refractory gout patients, including sustained serum uric acid reduction, reduced painful flares and once monthly dosing, and we look forward to initiating the planned six-month head-to-head (COMPARE) clinical trial against Krystexxa this month,” said Carsten Brunn, Ph.D., President and CEO of Selecta. “We also look forward to further advancing our ImmTOR + AAV gene therapy combination product candidate in Crigler-Najjar Syndrome in collaboration with CureCN in the second half of the year and identifying other ways to advance our ImmTOR platform and grow our strategic partnerships.”
