Stocks in this article: IDRA

Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDRA) today reported financial and operational results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

"Idera’s proprietary drug candidates targeting Toll-like Receptors, or TLRs, have advanced to Phase 2 clinical trials in both of our key therapeutic areas of focus: oncology and autoimmune diseases,” said Sudhir Agrawal, D.Phil., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "During the second quarter of this year, we anticipate data from a randomized Phase 2 trial of IMO-2055 in combination with Erbitux in patients with second-line squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. We also expect to initiate a Phase 2 study of IMO-3100 in patients with psoriasis in the second quarter.”

Dr. Agrawal continued, “We have expanded our pipeline in autoimmune diseases with the addition of IMO-8400, a first-in-class antagonist of TLRs 7, 8 and 9. We have selected lupus as the first disease indication for IMO-8400. However, based on the roles of TLR7, 8 and 9 in multiple autoimmune diseases, IMO-8400 has potential applications in additional disease indications.”

Financial Results

As of December 31, 2011, cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $24.6 million compared to $34.6 million at December 31, 2010.
