CombinatoRx Cuts 30 More Jobs, Wiping out Two-Thirds of Staff in Last Month

11/20/08

CombinatoRx, the Cambridge, MA-based biotech company, said this afternoon it is cutting 30 more jobs, which means it has now eliminated two-thirds of its staff since its lead drug candidate for arthritis failed in a clinical trial in early October. The company (NASDAQ: CRXX), which will be left with 55 employees, should have enough cash to operate without raising more capital from investors for four years, the company said.
