Antibe Therapeutics Announces Enrollment of Final Subjects in Phase 2B Gastrointestinal Safety Study of Lead Pain Drug, ATB-346

TORONTO, CANADA — (January 29, 2018) – Antibe Therapeutics Inc. (“Antibe” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ATE, OTCQB: ATBPF), a diversified biotechnology company with two best-in-class divisions in pain/inflammation and regenerative medicine, is pleased to announce that the final subjects have been enrolled and are on treatment in the key Phase 2B double-blind clinical trial of ATB-346. The study is being conducted in 240 healthy volunteers and is designed to demonstrate the unequivocal superiority of ATB-346 in gastrointestinal (“GI”) safety compared to naproxen, the most prescribed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (“NSAID”) in the USA.

Antibe’s Chief Scientific Officer, John Wallace, commented, “We are pleased to provide an update on the progress and timing of our on-going clinical study of ATB-346. The final subjects have commenced dosing and will be on treatment for two weeks, followed by a two-week monitoring period and then standard data analysis for the primary endpoint. As such, we remain on our previously announced schedule and anticipate the release of top-line results within six weeks.”

About ATB-346
ATB-346 is a hydrogen sulfide-releasing derivative of naproxen. NSAIDs are the most commonly used therapy for osteoarthritis, yet their use is associated with a high incidence of gastrointestinal ulceration and bleeding. NSAIDs are also widely used in a number of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and general pain reduction, with a similarly high rate of gastrointestinal ulceration and bleeding. It is well-accepted that patients with these conditions would benefit greatly from an effective, GI-sparing anti-inflammatory/analgesic agent such as ATB-346.

ATB-352, the second drug in Antibe’s pipeline, targets the urgent global need for a safer, non-addictive analgesic for treating severe acute pain, while ATB-340 is a GI-safe derivative of aspirin. www.antibethera.com
