INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB) on Monday announced that 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, presented data that demonstrated the use of INmune Bio’s lead compound, XPro1595, to lessen the exacerbation of Alzheimer’s-like pathology brought on by a high fat and high fructose diet in mice. Dr. Tansey presented the data as the lead speaker at a press conference during the Society for Neuroscience 49th Annual Meeting in Chicago. “The new data strengthen our findings that a potential connection between diets rich in fat and sugar and chronic inflammation can lead to an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease,” Dr. Malú Tansey stated in the news release. “With more than 93 million obese people in the U.S., according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, understanding the link between obesity and Alzheimer’s disease is more relevant now than ever. By targeting inflammation with XPro1595 we may be able to effectively treat neurodegenerative diseases.”

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.
