Anthos Therapeutics Appoints David McIntyre as Chief Financial Officer
Anthos Therapeutics, a late-stage biotechnology company developing innovative therapies for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, today announced the appointment of David McIntyre as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. McIntyre will assume responsibility for the company’s finance and investor relation functions, and joins Anthos as its lead product candidate, abelacimab, expects to become the first ‘hemostasis-sparring’ Factor XI anticoagulant to enter Phase 3 clinical studies in the United States.
“With the recent completion of enrollment in our Phase 2b atrial fibrillation (AF) study and the goal of initiating three Phase 3 clinical studies for abelacimab within the next twelve months, David strengthens our leadership team as we aim to become the first Factor XI anticoagulant seeking approval for the treatment and prevention of thromboembolism in various cardiovascular conditions,” said John Glasspool, CEO, Anthos Therapeutics. “David brings a successful track record in both public and private healthcare companies and his financial, transactional, and legal experience adds significant value to our organization going forward.”
Mr. McIntyre added, “Factor XI therapies are becoming increasingly recognized as a paradigm shift in anticoagulation as they are able to pharmacologically uncouple thrombosis from the bleeding and tolerability challenges commonly encountered with conventional anticoagulation therapies. I am excited to be joining a team made up of outstandingly talented individuals and investors working to bring abelacimab to the market so as to meet this serious medical need in anticoagulation.”
