Date:7/23/2014

NEW YORK, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lyfebulb, the International Pemphigus Pemphigoid Foundation (IPPF) and Immune Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCQX and NASDAQ OMX First North Premier, Stockholm: "IMNP."; "Immune" or "the Company"), announced a collaboration to increase awareness of unmet needs in treating bullous pemphigoid last night at an event attended by more than sixty patients, physicians, scientists and other interested parties. Lyfebulb is a health and wellness company dedicated to serving the needs of chronic disease patient communities by raising awareness of unmet needs, and supporting healthy lifestyles and therapy that lead to successful disease management. The IPPF is the leading support and education foundation for patients and family members from around the world affected by pemphigus vulgaris and bullous pemphigoid - two devastating autoimmune diseases affecting the skin and mucous membranes. The event and collaboration are supported in part by Immune, a public biotech company with a clinical program in bullous pemphigoid.

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a rare, potentially life threatening autoimmune disease where painful blisters develop on the skin, eyes, mouth, and throat. Each year, BP affects over 30,000 patients in the United States and Europe. Typically, patients are over 65 years old and their immediate support system may include their adult children. The disease is treated by a small group of specialists in dermatology and oral medicine.  

"BP is a severe and disabling disease that we struggle to manage with the therapies we have available to us today," said Neil Korman, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Dermatology at Case Western School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, who was the keynote speaker at the event. "It is a common misperception that we have good th
