SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rigel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: RIGL) today announced that its corporate partner, Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), has begun a Phase 1 clinical trial of an inhaled formulation of Rigel's small molecule syk kinase inhibitor, R343, for the treatment of allergic asthma.
