FREISING, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a presentation yesterday at the 8th Annual European Antibody Congress in Geneva, Switzerland, Pieris AG presented for the first time data for its PRS-190 bispecific Anticalin program targeting the Th17 pathway. The data revealed the generation of a highly specific and potent bispecific antagonist targeting IL-17 and IL-23, two key members of the Th17 family of cytokines, involved in autoimmunity and hyperinflammation. The single-gene multispecific drug candidate, whose individual building blocks could surpass existing available therapies against their respective target, creates several benefits ranging from efficacy, convenience, accelerated development timelines, ease of manufacturing and cost.
