“The second quarter of this year represented a period of solid execution throughout the organization,” stated Vincent Milano, Idera’s Chief Executive Officer. “As a result of the efforts of the team to continue driving our programs forward, we are rapidly approaching critical data readouts for Idera. During the second half of this year, we expect to be in position to share important data from our melanoma trial with IMO-2125, as well as the next steps in the program.

We certainly have much more work ahead of us to arrive at our ultimate goal of delivering solutions to patients; however, we are energized knowing that we will soon be in possession of critical information to further understand the potential of these opportunities.”
