Immune Pharmaceuticals Completes Merger with EpiCept Corporation
Date:8/25/2013

These cells play a role in the development of certain inflammatory diseases, including ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, severe asthma and bullous pemphigoid.  Early studies of eotaxin-1 have validated the target and have shown that it may serve as a mediator of disease severity.  These findings are important as they suggest that eotaxin-1 levels may help guide treatment options for patients, a major step toward the personalization of treatment for inflammatory diseases.

Immune also intends to advance its NanomAb® program through the development of its own product candidates as well as through partnerships where it can apply this technology to partners' chemotherapeutic drugs.  The Company's NanomAb® technology is an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) platform designed to deliver cancer drugs directly to tumor cells thereby improving efficacy and reducing off-target undesirable effects.

Within the product pipeline previously under EpiCept's control, the National Cancer Institute-run trial of crolibulin is continuing, with Phase II clinical results anticipated in 2014.  Crolibulin is an active chemotherapeutic agent, which can be formulated with NanomAbs® to direct tumor targeting.  AmiKet™, a prescription topical cream for the treatment of neuropathic pain, has been designated as an out-licensing candidate for Phase III development and commercialization.  Although AmiKet™ has demonstrated promising clinical results, the product candidate is not well aligned with Immune's focus on highly targeted antibody therapeutics. The Company is considering taking steps to advance the drug candidate to the start of a Phase III trial while it initiates a formal out-licensing process expected to conclude in the first half of 2014.
