Data from In Vivo Disease Models on Taligen Therapeutics' Pipeline Candidates to be Presented at the XXII International Complement Workshop
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., September 25, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Taligen Therapeutics Inc. today announced that data from disease models on several of the company's pipeline candidates will be presented next week at the XXII International Complement Workshop in Basel, Switzerland.
The data, which will be presented in eight oral and poster presentations, are the results of research conducted by the laboratories of Michael Holers, M.D., chief scientific officer of Taligen, and the company's academic collaborators in the complement research community. Five studies testing the company's fusion protein TT30 and two new compounds, a fusion protein TT32 and a monoclonal antibody mAb171, in animal models are highlighted below. These data further support Taligen's approach that targeting the alternative complement pathway can impact complement-mediated inflammatory disease processes.

Taligen Therapeutics is focused on the discovery and development of novel protein therapeutics that are designed to modulate the alternative pathway of the complement system to treat a wide range of inflammatory conditions and diseases. The company's lead therapeutic candidates are monoclonal antibodies and recombinant fusion proteins that target key factors in the alternative pathway, which Taligen's founders have validated as an important amplification loop in the inflammation process. Taligen's headquarters and late-stage research and development operations are located in Cambridge, Mass. The company also maintains a drug discovery operation in Denver under Taligen's chief scientific officer Michael Holers, M.D., which closely collaborates with an international complement biology research community.
