Ablynx To Present At The 32nd Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference And To Provide An Update On Its TTP Program
Published: Jan 13, 2014
GHENT, Belgium, 13 January 2014 – Ablynx [Euronext Brussels: ABLX] today announced that it will present at the 32nd Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference on Thursday 16 January 2014, at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time).
Dr Edwin Moses, CEO of Ablynx, will give a corporate presentation that will include an update on the Company’s anti-vWF Nanobody, caplacizumab, to treat acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), a rare blood disorder. Some improvement in recruitment has been seen since amending the clinical protocol in September 2013; nevertheless, Ablynx has decided to stop recruitment of the trial now to allow earlier analysis of the data for potential proof-of-concept. Phase II data are now expected during the first half of 2014 and if the results are promising, a Phase III study is anticipated to commence in 2015.
The slides may be accessed via the Company’s website, www.ablynx.com, under the ‘News and Events>upcoming events’ section.
