About Tolerx

Tolerx is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of novel therapies for immune-mediated diseases. TRX518 is directed to GITR and is in preclinical development for the treatment of cancer and chronic viral diseases. TRX518 is thought to circumvent immune system tolerance by inhibiting the suppressive activity of T regulatory cells and extending the survival of T effector cells, thereby enhancing responses to tumor and viral antigens. Tolerx also has two antibodies in clinical development for the treatment of various autoimmune indications, these are: otelixizumab, an anti-CD3 MAb that is being developed in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline and MTRX1011A a modified form of TRX1, an anti-CD4 MAb that is being developed in collaboration with Genentech, Inc. In addition to TRX518, Tolerx is also engaged in the preclinical development of other antibodies that may shift or modulate the immune system.
