Why Vote for INmune
- INmune Bio is focused on reprogramming the innate immune system to reverse chronic inflammation, an unrecognized but pervasive disease, with clinical programs in cancer and beyond.
- The lead oncology asset, INB03 targets myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSC), the most important cell of the tumor microenvironment that is responsible for resistance to immunotherapy including checkpoint inhibitors (CPI). The goal is to eliminate resistance to CPI in patients with biomarkers of chronic inflammation including elevated MDSC. INB03, also known as XPro1595, has been studied in other therapeutic areas with more than 50 publications.
- INKmune™, a novel biologic that activates the patient’s Natural Killer (NK) cells to attack cancer cells, is being developed for the treatment of relapse refractory ovarian cancer and high-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS); both trials are expected to begin during 2019.
“We are excited about our nomination for the Buzz of Bio conference in the public company category, as this recognition underscores the potential importance of our emerging science to fight serious disease and illness, including cancer,” said RJ Tesi, M.D., CEO and Co-Founder of the Company. “We encourage participation in the voting process, as biotechnology is founded on innovation grounded in scientific curiosity, and this award speaks to the heart of the industry’s mission.”
