Alba Therapeutics Presents New Data for Larazotide Acetate at the 2008 American College of Gastroenterology Annual Scientific Meeting
Date:10/7/2008

rmally increased intestinal permeability and the genesis of some autoimmune diseases, either as a result of reduction of antigen presentation to the body's immune system, or through inhibitory, direct effects on gastrointestinal associated lymphoid tissue. Larazotide acetate is a non-absorbed peptide which improves mucosal barrier function by inhibiting cytoskeletal reorganization and tight junction disassembly. Larazotide acetate is orally formulated, has been granted "Fast Track" designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of Celiac disease, and is also being evaluated for the treatment of Crohn's Disease. Results of the Company's first study in patients with celiac disease are available online at: http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1365-2036.2007.03413.x
