TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Antibe Therapeutics Inc. ("Antibe" or the “Company”) (TSXV: ATE, OTCQB: ATBPF), a leader in developing safer therapeutics for pain and inflammation, will be attending the 2018 BIO International Convention (“BIO International”) this week in Boston, Massachusetts. BIO International is the largest biopharma partnering event of the year, attracting over 16,000 leaders and business development executives from 5,000 companies across the globe.
“The recent successful Phase 2B GI safety study for our lead drug, ATB-346, has provided unequivocal validation of our hydrogen sulfide technology and has strengthened our position in partnering discussions,” commented Dan Legault, Antibe’s CEO. “We are now engaging multinational pharmaceutical firms with an objective of securing strategic licensing deals for the major markets. In parallel, we continue to advance on-going discussions for smaller market opportunities in our efforts to fully monetize ATB-346 for shareholders.”
Antibe will be engaging in several days of one-on-one meetings with pharmaceutical companies to discuss licensing opportunities for ATB-346 and its hydrogen sulfide platform. Although Antibe is in active discussions with several parties, there can be no assurance that any partnering discussions will materialize into a successful transaction.
