, a clinical stage biotechnology company developing novel biologic therapeutics for the treatment of fibrosis, today announced that Suzanne L.

Promedior is a clinical stage biotechnology company pioneering the development of targeted therapeutics to treat rare diseases involving fibrosis. Its proprietary development platform is based upon Pentraxin-2, an endogenous human protein that is specifically active at the site of tissue damage and works as an agonist, preventing and potentially reversing fibrosis. PRM-151, the Company’s lead candidate is in a Phase 2 trial for myelofibrosis, and preliminary data demonstrated biologic activity with improvements across clinically relevant measures, including bone marrow fibrosis, hemoglobin, platelets, spleen, and symptoms. PRM-151 has also been tested in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF, and data from a Phase 1b study of PRM-151 in IPF patients resulted in a mean improvement in Forced Vital Capacity at 8 weeks. PRM-151 was well tolerated in both studies. For more information about Promedior, please visit www.promedior.com
