PARIS, France, January 24, 2024, 8:30 a.m. CET – Abivax SA (Euronext Paris & Nasdaq: ABVX) (“Abivax” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing therapeutics that harness the body’s natural regulatory mechanisms to modulate the immune response in patients with chronic inflammatory diseases, today announces the organization of a virtual KOL Investor Event on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. EST (8:00 p.m. CET). To participate in the event, please register here.
The event will feature Marla Dubinsky, MD, and Parambir Dulai, MD. Along with Abivax’s management, they will be discussing the unmet medical need and current treatment landscape for patients suffering from ulcerative colitis (UC).
The event will also highlight the ongoing and future clinical development plans for obefazimod, Abivax's lead drug candidate, and include a discussion of the mechanism of action, along with the Phase 2b clinical data and Phase 3 trial design for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active UC.

A live question and answer session will follow the formal presentations.
