About AHB-137

AHB-137, a novel unconjugated antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) developed within AusperBio’s proprietary Med-Oligo™ ASO technology platform, is emerging as a promising candidate in the quest for a functional cure for chronic hepatitis B. Its compelling preclinical data was highlighted at the 2023 EASL™ conference. This novel dual-mechanism ASO is currently undergoing concurrent Phase I trials across international multicenter sites and a Phase I/IIa trial in China. Through the global development strategy, AHB-137 is advancing rapidly towards the goal of a functional cure for chronic hepatitis B.

About Chronic Hepatitis B

Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) infection is a liver disease estimated to affect nearly 290 million people worldwide and can cause other chronic complications such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Although current treatment options can suppress HBV replication, achieving a cure is rare. Therefore, the discovery of a cure for CHB with finite treatment is an urgent need.
