Our antibody demonstrated a great safety profile in preclinical safety and phase 1 clinical trial studies in both psoriasis patients and healthy volunteers. In SRD phase 1 psoriasis patient study, a clear biological/pharmacological effect consistent with the proposed mechanism of action of AbG's antibody was demonstrated in patients. The current Phase 2 clinical trial of AbGn-168H will be a multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial. The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate that AbGn-168H provides safe, durable, and remissive therapeutic effect in psoriatic patients. Additional clinical trials for type-I diabetes, Crohn's and other autoimmune diseases are under evaluation.
