About INmune Bio, Inc.
INmune Bio, Inc. is a clinical-stage immunology company developing therapies targeting the innate immune system to fight disease. INmune Bio is developing two product platforms, the DN-TNFα Platform and an Immune Priming Platform, as well as multiple products related to these platforms that reengineer the patient’s innate immune system’s response to disease. In addition to INB03, the DN-TNFα Platform includes XPRO1595, a DN-TNFα protein biologic that targets soluble TNFα (sTNFα) and may have many beneficial effects in patients with Alzheimer’s disease by decreasing neuroinflammation; and NeuLiv, also a DN-TNFα protein biologic that may enable targeting of the underlying cause of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), to help stop the disease and allow the liver to heal. The Immune Priming Platform includes INKmune, which is a natural killer (NK) cell therapeutic that primes the patient’s NK cells to attack minimal residual disease, the remaining cancer cells that are difficult to detect, which often cause relapse.
