Poolbeg reports promising results for POLB 001 in cancer immunotherapy-induced CRS

Poolbeg Pharma, a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialisation of medicines targeting diseases with a high unmet medical need, has announced promising in vivo results for POLB 001 in addressing cancer immunotherapy-induced cytokine release syndrome (CRS).  

POLB 001 demonstrated efficacy in reducing cancer immunotherapy-induced CRS in an in vivo animal model with CRS symptoms significantly improved following administration of POLB 001. Reductions were seen in all serum proinflammatory cytokines tested. 

The results, together with the data from the recent LPS human challenge trial, further support the strategic expansion of the Phase II ready POLB 001 to treat and prevent cancer immunotherapy-induced CRS. The data also strengthens and facilitates the expansion of patent applications for POLB 001 in cancer immunotherapy-induced CRS.  

Poolbeg Pharma plc (LON:POLB) is a clinical stage infectious disease pharmaceutical company, with a novel capital light clinical model which enables us to develop multiple products faster and more cost effectively than the traditional biotech model.
