Tobira Therapeutics is a privately held biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapies for treatment of HIV infection. The company’s lead development candidate is cenicriviroc (CVC or TBR-652), a novel, oral, once-daily, fixed-dose combinable, dual inhibitor of chemokine receptors CCR5 and CCR2 being evaluated for the treatment of HIV infection. Tobira is currently conducting a 48-week randomized, double-blinded, double-dummy and controlled Phase 2b study of cenicriviroc in treatment-naive HIV-infected individuals with CCR5-tropic virus. Tobira plans to present twenty-four week primary analysis data from this clinical trial at a scientific meeting in the first half of 2013. Tobira has financial support from a syndicate of leading life science investors including Domain Associates, Frazier Healthcare Ventures, Montreux Equity Partners, Novo Ventures and Canaan Partners.
