Nuevolution to present new data on its BET BD1 program supporting the understanding of the biological mode-of-action

Stockholm, 27 October 2017. Nuevolution AB (publ) (NUE.ST) today announced that Søren Jensby Nielsen, Director of Biology, will be presenting new data on Nuevolution’s selective bromodomain BET BD1 inhibitor at the 5th Annual Meeting of the Cytokine and Interferon Society, held 29 October – 2 November in Kagasawa, Japan.

At the conference, new data on Nuevolution’s selective bromodomain BET BD1 inhibitor, NUE7770, will be presented. This includes gene expression profiles showing selective and potent inhibition of a small and select set of immune-related genes. These data support the benign safety profile observed with Nuevolution’s BET BD1 selective inhibitors as well as propose a link between selective BET BD1 inhibition and the efficacy observed in multiple mouse disease models such as Lupus, Psoriasis and Fibrosis. The new data is expected to guide and support Nuevolution’s conclusion regarding its choice of optimal indication(s) for the further development of the program.

Dr. Jensby will be presenting these new data in the context of previously disclosed data from Nuevolution’s selective bromodomain BET BD1 selective inhibitor program (inflammation and auto-immune diseases) showing in-vitro / in-vivo efficacies and good safety data for NUE7770 and related program compounds.

The potent and BET BD1 selective compounds in this program was originally identified using Nuevolution’s proprietary Chemetics® technology, and the program is currently in pre-clinical development for potential application in multiple inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

The presentation is available on Nuevolution’s website www.nuevolution.com.
