POLB 001 LPS challenge trial data to be presented at IUIS
Poolbeg Pharma (AIM: POLB, OTCQB: POLBF, 'Poolbeg' or the 'Company'), a biopharmaceutical company focussed on the development and commercialisation of innovative medicines targeting diseases with a high unmet medical need, announces that an abstract highlighting the potential of POLB 001 as a groundbreaking therapy has been accepted for presentation at the 18th International Congress of Immunology ('IUIS'), to be held 27 November - 2 December 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa.
IUIS is the world's leading conference in the field of immunology and attracts immunologists from universities, healthcare providers, independent research organisations and industry leaders. It serves as a premier platform for the exchange of the latest cutting-edge discoveries and advancements in immunological research.
The poster presentation will discuss POLB 001's positive LPS human challenge trial results. POLB 001 is a potential treatment of severe influenza and Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS) associated with cancer immunotherapies. CRS is a severe inflammatory response, which may be encountered as a side effect of some therapies, manifesting a range of symptoms that can rapidly progress to a severe life-threatening reaction. An effective therapy for CRS could unlock the benefits of cancer immunotherapies, benefiting patients and healthcare systems alike.
Title: Inhibition of local and systemic inflammatory responses by POLB 001, a novel p38 MAPK inhibitor, following in vivo LPS administration in healthy volunteers
Session Date: 1 December 2023
Presentation Time: 12pm - 1pm SAST
Location: Hall 2
Presenter: Digna de Bruin, The Centre for Human Drug Research
