Date:3/25/2013

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novira Therapeutics, Inc. today announced the completion of its Series A financing after securing $7.5 million from new investor Versant Ventures. This brings the total raised from all investors in the round to $25 million. Versant joins 5AM Ventures and Canaan Partners, which led the first closing of the Series A in August 2012. In conjunction with this investment, Gianni Gromo M.D ., Ph.D., venture partner with Versant Ventures, joined the company's board of directors.
