Chemomab Therapeutics Ltd. (Nasdaq: CMMB), (Chemomab), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing innovative therapeutics to treat rare fibro-inflammatory diseases with high unmet need, today announced it will host a live key opinion leader (KOL) virtual event on primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) on Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at 10:00 AM ET. To register, click here.

The event, “Breaking New Ground: Expert Perspectives on Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis,” will feature Christopher Bowlus, MD (UC Davis Health), Ricky Safer (PSC Partners Seeking a Cure), and Massimo Pinzani, MD, PhD, (UCL Institute for Liver and Digestive Health, UPMC ISMETT), who will provide clinical and patient perspectives on PSC, a devastating rare liver disease with no FDA-approved therapies. They will discuss the urgent need for new PSC treatments and emerging developments that could facilitate new drug approvals.

Chemomab’s co-founder, CEO & CSO Adi Mor, PhD and CMO Matt Frankel, MD, will provide an overview of the CM-101 Phase 2 PSC clinical trial that will report topline results midyear 2024. CM-101 is a dual mechanism first-in-class monoclonal antibody that neutralizes CCL24, a soluble protein that is a key driver of inflammatory and fibrotic pathways central to PSC and other fibro-inflammatory diseases.

A Q&A session will follow the presentations.

About CM-101Chemomab is assessing CM-101 as a potential treatment for PSC in the Phase 2 SPRING trial. CM-101 is a first-in-class monoclonal antibody that neutralizes CCL24, a soluble protein that helps drive the inflammatory and fibrotic pathways central to PSC and other fibro-inflammatory diseases. In clinical and preclinical studies, CM-101 appears safe, with the potential to treat multiple fibro-inflammatory disorders. Data from a Phase 2a liver fibrosis trial in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) patients showed consistent, positive improvements in key inflammatory and fibrogenesis-related biomarkers, including several that may serve as a potential bridge to activity in PSC. Patient enrollment in the Phase 2 SPRING trial has been completed and a readout of topline data is expected midyear 2024. CM-101 has Orphan Drug status in the U.S. and E.U. and was awarded FDA Fast Track designation.

A recording of the PSC KOL webinar will be available following the live session on Chemomab’s website at Chemomab Investor Relations - Presentations.
