(NASDAQ: INMB), an immunotherapy company developing treatments which harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, announced today that the company will be presenting at the upcoming Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) Satellite Symposium held Sept. 25 – 27 in Sydney, Australia.
C.J. Barnum, Ph.D., Director of Neuroscience at INmune Bio, will present the company’s strategy for treating Alzheimer’s disease at a panel session, along with other global researchers and leaders in the latest therapeutics and developments in Alzheimer’s clinical research.
“Neuroinflammation is now widely recognized as a key therapeutic target in Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Barnum. “ We believe that neuroinflammation plays a critical role in neurologic disorders like Alzheimer’s and our drug candidate, XPro1595 is starting clinical trials to test this hypothesis.”
AAIC is the premier annual conference for presentation and discussion of the latest Alzheimer’s and dementia research. The AAIC Satellite Symposium is part of the events organized by the Alzheimer’s Association and gathers researchers from around the world to discuss scientific advances in the understanding and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. Dr. Barnum will present during a panel session moderated by Malú Tansey, Ph.D., Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease at the University of Florida College of Medicine.
Session 3: Therapeutics: State of the Field
Presentation Title: A Biomarker-Directed Approach to Targeting Inflammation in Alzheimer’s Patients
Time and Date: 5:10 PM – 5:30 PM, Sept. 25
Location: Hyatt Regency Sydney, Australia
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is the most common cause of dementia and is characterized by the decline in cognitive function and neuronal loss. Sustained activation of the brain’s resident macrophages (microglia) and other immune cells have emerged as the underlying pathological condition that facilitates and exacerbates the progression of the disease.
