Osprey Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. Completes $11 Million Initial Private Financing
Date:9/3/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Osprey Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., a privately-held company focused on developing novel protein therapeutics that selectively target chemokine-activated leukocytes that are responsible for initiating and maintaining inflammatory diseases, announced today that the company has raised $11 million in its first round of venture capital funding. The financing was led by Burrill & Company with participation from Novo Nordisk Biotech Fund (Novo Nordisk's internal corporate venture fund), Yasuda Enterprise Development, GeneChem Therapeutics Venture Fund, BDC Venture Capital, Inc. and Western Technology Seed Investment Fund.

"With a lead compound poised to enter clinical studies and a rich pipeline of highly specific protein therapeutics designed to target chemokine-mediated inflammation, we are enthusiastic about the opportunity to invest in Osprey Pharmaceuticals U.S.A.," said John E. Hamer, Ph.D., Managing Partner of Burrill & Company on behalf of the company's investors. "The company has acquired a powerful drug discovery platform which has the potential to yield new high value therapeutics against inflammatory and autoimmune disease."

Osprey Pharmaceuticals U.S.A. will deploy these funds to advance the company's lead product, a therapeutic fusion protein known as CCL2-LPM, into a safety and proof-of-concept clinical trial. CCL2-LPM is designed to target the CCL2-CCR2 chemokine ligand and receptor axis, which play a significant role in inflammatory kidney diseases and other autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Proceeds will also be applied to the discovery and development of additional therapeutics that have emerged from the company's proprietary platform for the discovery of therapeutic Leukocyte Population Modulators (LPMs). LPMs specifically target chemokine-activated leukocytes that drive and/or maintain a variety of inflammatory and autoimmune disorders.
