Samumed Announces Multiple Presentations at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) 2018 Annual Congress

(June 08, 2018)

SAN DIEGO, June 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Samumed, LLC, announced today that it will present clinical and preclinical data on two of the company’s investigational drugs, SM04690, for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA), and SM04755, for the treatments of psoriasis and tendinopathy, at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) 2018 Annual European Congress of Rheumatology to be held in Amsterdam from June 13-16, 2018.

In addition to data on its investigational candidates, Samumed will also be presenting data contributing to the knowledge base on the design of knee osteoarthritis clinical trials relevant to the development of new therapies.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to present clinical and preclinical data at EULAR from a wide spectrum of our programs including OA, psoriasis, and tendinopathy,” said Yusuf Yazici, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Samumed. “We look forward to presenting Phase 2 clinical data on SM04690, our small molecule candidate for knee OA with disease modifying potential.”

About the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR)

The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) is the organization which represents the patient, health professional and scientific societies of rheumatology of all the European nations. EULAR endeavors to stimulate, promote, and support the research, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of rheumatic diseases. In line with UEMS, EULAR defines rheumatology as including rheumatic diseases of the connective tissue, locomotor and musculoskeletal systems.

About SM04690

SM04690 is a small molecule inhibitor of the Wnt pathway administered as an intra-articular injection, and is being developed as a potential disease-modifying drug for osteoarthritis (DMOAD). Preclinical data suggested SM04690 has a dual mechanism of action with three specific effects on joint health – generation of articular cartilage, slowing down cartilage degradation, and reducing inflammation in the joint. Additional information on Samumed’s SM04690 osteoarthritis program can be found here: https://www.samumed.com/pipeline/detail.aspx?id=20

About SM04755

SM04755 is a small-molecule Wnt pathway inhibitor and is being developed as a potential topical therapeutic for tendinopathy. Preclinical data suggested that SM04755 may inhibit inflammation, reduce fibrosis, and increase tenocyte differentiation (tendon repair). Additional information on Samumed’s SM04755 tendinopathy program can be found here: https://www.samumed.com/pipeline/detail.aspx?id=13

SM04755 is also being developed as a topical treatment for psoriasis. Preclinical data suggested SM04755 has the potential to attenuate inflammation, epidermal thickening, and fibrosis. Additional information on Samumed’s SM04755 psoriasis program can be found here: https://www.samumed.com/pipeline/detail.aspx?id=11
