STOCKHOLM, May 05, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
InDex Pharmaceuticals Holding AB (publ) today announced that the company will present two posters at the Digestive Disease Week (DDW). DDW is the largest congress in the world within gastroenterology. The congress is held in Chicago, US on May 6-9, 2017.
Both posters will be presented during the poster session on Monday May 8. The first poster has the title Binding properties of human TLR-9 receptor to cobitolimod – a candidate for treatment of active Ulcerative Colitis in late stage of clinical development, and shows the binding affinity of cobitolimod to the receptor Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9). The second poster has the title IL-10 induction properties of the TLR-9 agonist cobitolimod – a candidate for treatment of active Ulcerative Colitis in late stage of clinical development and shows that cobitolimod can induce a dose dependent release in vitro of the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 from immune cells obtained from both healthy individuals and ulcerative colitis patients.
The data were previously presented at the European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) Congress in Barcelona in February 2017.
Abstracts of the posters are available on the DDW homepage (www.ddw.org).
