PARAMUS, N.J., May 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, a global pharmaceutical company, today announced new

and updated data on GBR 830 will be presented at the upcoming International Investigative Dermatology Meeting (IID) in Orlando, Florida. The IID meeting occurs only once every five years and brings together top researchers
from across the globe to further the understanding of skin biology and dermatologic disease. The GBR 830 presentations at IID 2018 include one oral presentation and three poster presentations on GBR 830, an investigational treatment for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.

"In the five years since the last IID meeting, our lead dermatology asset, GBR 830, has progressed from an early preclinical asset to one that is now in Phase 2b clinical efficacy trials," said Fred Grossman, President and Chief Medical Officer at Glenmark Pharmaceuticals.

About GBR 830 in Atopic Dermatitis

GBR 830 is designed to inhibit OX40, a costimulatory immune checkpoint receptor expressed on activated T cells and memory T cells. Costimulatory signals are essential for T cell activity, and binding between OX40 and OX40L is a biomarker for the severity of autoimmune diseases. The activation of this pathway leads to conversion of activated T cells into memory T cells, which promotes inflammation. In addition, regulatory T cells also contribute to inflammation, and OX40 signaling by these cells downregulates immune suppressing functions. It is believed that GBR 830 may inhibit the dual activities of OX40 and OX40L binding in both activated T cells and regulatory T cells, thus potentially reducing inflammation associated with symptoms of atopic dermatitis.
