Ampio Pharmaceuticals to present at the 14th International Congress on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (LUPUS 2021) and the 6th International Congress on Controversies in Rheumatology and Autoimmunity (CORA)
ENGLEWOOD, Col., July 28, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Pharmaceutical Ampio (NYSE American: AMPE), a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing immunology-based therapies for prevalent inflammatory conditions, today announced the details of the presentation of the company’s summary, “Significant Inhibition of TLR7 / CXCL10 signaling axis by LMWF5A in monocytic lines; Implications for COVID-19 and Lupus Nephritis ”, given virtually at the 14th International Congress on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (LUPUS 2021) and the 6th International Congress on Controversies in Rheumatology and Autoimmunity (CORA) on 6-9 October 2021.
Ampio’s presentation is based on the Company’s analysis that Ampio’s drug candidate, Ampion ™, currently in clinical study for the treatment of osteoarthritis and hyperinflammation seen with severe COVID-19, inhibits the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, also known as cytokine storms. .
The presentation will summarize the evidence that treatment using Ampion suppresses Toll Like Receptor 7/8 (TLR7 / 8) signaling in monocytic / macrophage lines and suggests a role for Ampion in the treatment of the disruption of these pathways seen in lupus nephritis as well. as in COVID-19. Toll-like receptors are fundamental innate mechanisms for detecting and responding to pathogens (molecular models associated with pathogens, PAMPs, including viruses such as SARS-Cov2) or damaged cells (molecular models associated with damage, DAMP) by activating a pro-inflammatory cascade in the immune system. cells. Such deregulated hyperactivation of these pathways is associated with the cytokine / chemokine storm seen in severe COVID-19 patients.
Ampio recently announced early positive data in its AP-014 Phase I clinical trial, using Ampion in the treatment of respiratory distress in patients following COVID-19. The study showed that inhaled Ampion reduced all-cause mortality in COVID-19 respiratory distress by 78% compared to standard of care (SOC) alone.
