WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Viridian Therapeutics, Inc.

“We’re excited to share mechanistic and clinical data at this year’s ATA annual meeting that contribute to the emerging body of evidence demonstrating differentiation of VRDN-001 from current therapies," stated Jonathan Violin, Ph.D., Viridian Therapeutics’ President and CEO. “We are thrilled that the 10 mg/kg data from our Phase 1/2 trial was selected for a late-breaking presentation, and we look forward to presenting additional updates for both VRDN-001 and VRDN-002 later this quarter. These updates will include top-line data for the 20 mg/kg cohort of our ongoing Phase 1/2 trial of VRDN-001 in Thyroid Eye Disease, followed later this quarter by top-line data from the currently enrolling 3mg/kg cohort. This quarter we’ll also share additional pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic results from our first-in-human trial of VRDN-002, our half-life extended IGF-1R antibody, which reinforce and build upon the recently presented interim results.”
