ROCKVILLE, Md., June 23, 2011  /PRNewswire/ -- MacroGenics, Inc., a privately held biotechnology company that develops immunotherapeutics to treat autoimmune disorders, cancer and infectious diseases, today announced that 1-year data from Protege, the Company's Phase 3 clinical study of teplizumab in type 1 diabetes patients, will be presented at the American Diabetes Association's 71st Scientific Sessions symposium in San Diego, California on June 28, 2011 at 9:10 a.m. PDT.

About Teplizumab

Teplizumab, also called MGA031 and hOKT3gamma1 (Ala-Ala), is a humanized, anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody. Teplizumab binds to an epitope of the CD3-epsilon chain expressed on mature T lymphocytes and, by doing so, may modulate the pathological immunologic responses underlying multiple autoimmune diseases. Specifically, teplizumab may inhibit unwanted effector T cells and enhance beneficial regulatory T cell functions, thus promoting immune tolerance.  MacroGenics retains full worldwide rights to teplizumab.
