InflaRx to Host Virtual R&D Event on June 5, 2024 and Report First Quarter 2024 Results on May 8, 2024

JENA, Germany, April 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InflaRx N.V. (Nasdaq: IFRX), a biopharmaceutical company pioneering anti-inflammatory therapeutics by targeting the complement system, today announced that it will report its first quarter 2024 financial and operating results on May 8, 2024, before the market opens. No conference call is planned for the first quarter 2024 results.

InflaRx also announced it will host a virtual research and development event on June 5, 2024. Guided by internationally renowned thought leaders, this event will focus on the planned development of our new oral small molecule C5aR inhibitor, INF904, and the role of C5aR in chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) and hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). Discussions will address underlying development rationales and expected Phase IIa trial design and provide insights into the commercial opportunity. In addition, we will discuss INF904's broader therapeutic potential in the immuno-inflammation field and recent advances in our understanding of the role of C5a/C5aR signaling as it relates to human inflammatory diseases.

Featured key opinion leaders will include Prof. Dr. Marcus Maurer (Professor of Dermatology and Allergology, Institute of Allergology, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany), Christopher Sayed, MD (Prof. of Dermatology, University of North Carolina, Medical School; and Secretary of the HS Foundation) and Prof. Dr. Jörg Köhl (Director of the Institute for Systemic Inflammation Research, University of Lübeck, Lübeck, Germany).

The R&D event will take place on June 5, from 12:00 PM EDT / 6:00 PM CEST to 2:00 PM EDT / 8:00 PM CEST. To participate in the virtual event, participants may pre-register here to receive an invite link and dial-in details to access the R&D event.
