INmune Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB) today announced a poster presentation related to its program in Alzheimer’s disease at the upcoming Society for Neuroscience (“SfN”) 49th Annual Meeting to be held at McCormick Place in Chicago from Oct. 19–23, 2019. The company also announced that its poster was selected for presentation during the meeting’s press conference. The data from studies involving the use of INmune Bio’s XPro1595, as presented in a poster by Malú Tansey, Ph.D., Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease at the University of Florida College of Medicine, demonstrate the critical role of the immune system on an individual’s genetic risk in the context of environmental exposures, such as a diet high in fat and sugar, for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. “It’s become clear that neurological disorders can arise from or be exacerbated by innate immune dysfunction and chronic inflammation resulting from both genetic and environmental factors such as diet,” Dr. Tansey said in the news release. “Harnessing the power of the immune system could potentially delay or perhaps even prevent some of these neurological disorders. Our results provide a compelling rationale for moving forward with a clinical trial in early Alzheimer’s disease patients.”

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.
