The Company’s ARC-520 is an RNAi therapeutic designed to treat chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection by reducing the expression and release of new viral particles and viral proteins with the goal of achieving a functional cure for HBV. The Firm is conducting multiple Phase IIb clinical efficacy studies.
