INmune Bio Named Finalist for Lifestars’ U.S. Private Company of the Year Award

September 27, 2018

Recognized for big strides in cancer immunotherapy treatments

LA JOLLA, Calif., Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire -- INmune Bio Inc., an immunotherapy company developing treatments to reprogram the innate immune system to fight disease, announced today that it has been named on the final shortlist of 10 companies being considered for U.S. Private Company of the Year by Lifestars Awards, an organization in association with investment banking firm Jefferies that recognizes leaders in life sciences.

“We are delighted to be among the finalists for a Lifestars Award, receiving recognition by this high-profile organization alongside other companies with impressive accomplishments,” said INmune Bio co-founder and CEO Raymond J. Tesi, M.D. “INmune Bio has been making significant strides, with programs in the clinic and more news on the horizon.”

INmune Bio is providing a solution to important problems in immunotherapy. The company has two products: INB03™, which is in a Phase 1 clinical trial, and INKmune™, which will be in the clinic early next year. Both products reprogram cells of the patient’s innate immune system, enlisting the often-ignored half of the immune system in the battle against cancer. Most products in immunotherapy today focus on the adaptive immunity and fail to address the complex biology of the tumor microenvironment. By targeting innate immunity and the immunosuppressive environment of the TME, INmune Bio’s novel approach to cancer immunotherapy should take the brakes off the immune system and may help solve the resistance to immunotherapy that has frustrated advancement in the field.

Lifestars Awards are a celebration of the success stories, innovations, transformational deals and the people, teams and organizations that play a critical role in the advancement of the life sciences industry each year across Europe and the United States. Lifestars hosts a signature evening networking event during the Jefferies Annual Healthcare Conference week in London, Europe’s largest healthcare investment banking conference.

The Lifestars Awards will bring together over 500 global life science leaders, investors and researchers from the wider ecosystem to recognize the achievements of the industry. Winners will be announced during a gala dinner hosted at the Honourable Artillery Company in London on November 13. The event will support Unicef UK as the official charity beneficiary.
