PHILLIPSBURG, N.J., July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLDX) today reported that the first patient has been dosed in the Company's pilot study of CDX-1135 (a soluble form of human complement receptor type 1) in dense deposit disease (DDD). DDD is an ultra-rare, progressive kidney disease that ultimately results in kidney failure in the majority of affected individuals. DDD is caused by dysregulation of the C3 Convertase, a major early component of the alternative pathway of complement. CDX-1135 has been shown to inhibit complement activation and has yielded promising results in an animal model of DDD and in a single patient with DDD that was treated under a compassionate use protocol.
