REGiMMUNE Limited Licenses the Rights to Develop and Commercialize RGI-2001 To San Fu Biotech in Major Asian Countries1.4.2023 19:18:00 EEST | Press release

REGiMMUNE Limited (REGiMMUNE), a biotech company focused on creating innovative immunotherapies for immune disorders and cancer, and San Fu Biotech (SFB), a subsidiary of San Fu Chemical Co., Ltd. (4755.TW) have entered a licensing agreement to develop and commercialize RGI-2001 for the prophylaxis of acute Graft-versus-host disease (aGvHD) in major Asian countries. RGI-2001, with the novel mechanism to improve existing treatments, is a potentially first-in-class small molecule drug candidate targeted for preventing aGvHD, a life-threatening complication resulting from allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). GvHD is a systemic disorder that occurs when the graft's immune cells recognize the host as foreign and attack the recipient’s body cells or organs, and leads to skin rash, liver problems, abdominal pain or cramps, diarrhea, and increased risk for infections. Patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT have a high-risk of developing aGVHD associated with significant morb

AriBio Co., Ltd. to Present Biomarker Data for AR1001 from the Mild to Moderate Alzheimer’s Disease Phase 2 Study at the International Conference on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases and Related Neurological Disorders (AD/PD™ 2023)31.3.2023 19:00:00 EEST | Press release

AriBio Co., Ltd. announced that David Greeley MD, Chief Medical Officer at AriBio, will present biomarker data from the completed phase 2 study in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease who were treated with 10mg and 30mg of AR1001. AR1001 is a potent PDE5 inhibitor with preliminary efficacy in cognition, and preclinical effects on neuron apoptosis inhibition, promotion of neurogenesis, increase in neuroplasticity, and stimulation of autophagy to remove toxic proteins. The phase 2 study was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center trial to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of AR1001 over 26 and 52 weeks of treatment in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. The trial enrolled 210 patients at 21 research centers in the United States. Plasma collected from patients at baseline, week 26 and week 52 was analyzed by Quantarix using the Simoa HD-X analyzer. Meaningful, statistically significant changes were found over 52 weeks of treatm
