Egle Therapeutics to share preclinical data for its first autoimmune disease program, EGL-003, with an oral presentation at the 2024 Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy Meeting17.7.2024 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

Egle Therapeutics, a biotechnology company focused on advancing the next generation of regulatory T cell-focused therapies for oncology and auto-immunity, will deliver an oral presentation at The Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy meeting taking place in Paris from September 4th to 7th, 2024. The presentation, entitled “EGL-003, a novel IL-2 mutein to selectively expand and activate regulatory T cells and improve therapeutic efficacy in autoimmune disease”, will show evidence that EGL-003, a non-targeted Fc-fused IL-2 agonist mutein, selectively binds to regulatory T cells (Treg) and induces Treg IL-2 signaling. The resulting increase of Treg frequencies was observed in vitro and in different mouse models. Accordingly, EGL-003 significantly improved clinical, macroscopic, and histological parameters in a DSS-induced colitis mouse model with expansion of tissue-resident Tregs. EGL-003 is the first drug candidate being developed for treatment of autoimmune diseases in Egle’s pipeline and h
