Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ARWR) today announced that on October 26, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. ET it will host a key opinion leader (KOL) webinar on ARO-C3, the company’s investigational RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutic being developed as a treatment for patients with various complement mediated diseases.
The webinar will feature presentations by KOLs Richard J. Glassock, MD, MACP, FRCP, FASN (David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA), and Peter Browett, BMedSci, MBChB, FRACP, FRCPA (University of Auckland School of Medicine). They will discuss the current treatment landscape and unmet medical need in treating patients with complement mediated renal and hematological diseases.
Arrowhead’s management team will discuss the biology of the target, preclinical data generated to date, and clinical plans for ARO-C3. ARO-C3 is designed to reduce production of complement component 3 (C3) as a potential therapy for various complement mediated diseases. Arrowhead recently nominated ARO-C3 as a clinical candidate and intends to file a CTA in the fourth quarter of 2021 to begin clinical studies.
The webinar may be accessed on the Events and Presentations page under the Investors section of the Arrowhead website on October 26, and a replay will be made available following the conclusion of the webinar.

About Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals
Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, Arrowhead therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep, and durable knockdown of target genes. RNA interference, or RNAi, is a mechanism present in living cells that inhibits the expression of a specific gene, thereby affecting the production of a specific protein. Arrowhead’s RNAi-based therapeutics leverage this natural pathway of gene silencing.
