INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB), a clinical-stage immunology company focused on developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, today announced that its Co-Founder and CEO RJ Tesi, M.D., will present at the 2nd Annual Advances in Immuno-Oncology USA Congress taking place on October 8-9 in San Diego. In addition, Dr. Tesi and Director of Neuroscience CJ Barnum, Ph.D., will present at the World Immunotherapy Congress taking place from October 15-17 in Basel, Switzerland. “The immuno-oncology field is rapidly growing, and emerging new therapies are at the center of attention,” Dr. Tesi said in the news release. “With 30% of breast cancer patients being HER2+, trastuzumab has made significant strides in the treatment of breast cancer. Yet, many HER2+ breast cancer patients have shown resistance to the drug. In my presentation during the Advances in Immuno-Oncology USA Congress, I will address one of the reasons for the resistance – specifically the presence of the MUC4 biomarker – and how we may be able to use a soluble TNF inhibitor, such as our drug candidate INB03, to increase the efficacy of trastuzumab in those women who have shown resistance.”

About INmune Bio, Inc.
INmune Bio, Inc. is a publicly traded, clinical-stage biotechnology company developing therapies targeting the innate immune system to fight disease. INmune Bio is developing three product platforms: two products that reengineer the patient’s innate immune system’s response to cancer and one product to treat neuroinflammation that is currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease. INKmune 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. INB03 inhibits myeloid-derived suppressor cells (“MDSC”), which often cause resistance to immunotherapy, such as anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors. XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation, which causes microglial activation and neuronal cell death. INmune Bio’s product platforms utilize a precision medicine approach for the treatment of a wide variety of hematologic malignancies, solid tumors and chronic inflammation.
