Cleveland BioLabs Optimizes Operational Focus On Clinical Development

BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cleveland BioLabs, Inc. (Nasdaq:CBLI) announced today that because of maturation of its development pipeline and a reduced need for certain services, it has transferred laboratory and preclinical services personnel to Buffalo BioLabs, LLC, an entity affiliated with one of the Company's co-founders, Andrei Gudkov, Ph.D., D. Sci. CBLI has executed a service agreement providing for continued access to this team on an as-needed basis. The service agreement terms will be filed on Form 8-K later today.

"As we noted on our second quarter call, our maturing product pipeline requires less laboratory and preclinical support. We believe this restructuring allows us to sharpen our clinical development focus and preserve financial resources, while maintaining priority access to existing laboratory and preclinical services talent," noted Yakov Kogan, Ph.D., MBA, Chief Executive Officer of Cleveland BioLabs. "Our forecasted cash runway into the second quarter of 2014 includes estimated cost savings of approximately $130,000 per month on average from this transfer in 2014 and increased savings over time, as our need for these services decreases."
