About Connect Biopharmaceuticals

Connect Biopharmaceuticals is a China-based clinical-stage company focused on discovery and development of novel immune modulators for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and inflammation. Our drug discovery technology platform is built on the biology of T cell functions, which identifies molecules that target clinically-validated disease pathways.

We are currently conducting multiple clinical studies on two drug candidates that have the potential to treat a broad range of severe chronic inflammatory diseases. The first such lead drug candidate CBP-307, currently in two phase 2 clinical studies in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, is an orally-active, next-generation S1P1 and S1P5 (a G-protein coupled receptor -GPCR) modulator for the treatment of autoimmune disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases.  The drug candidate has been studied in two phase 1 studies involving 74 healthy volunteers and has demonstrated excellent tolerability, potent T cell modulation activity and optimal pharmacokinetic properties. The other drug candidate is CBP-201, a highly-potent antibody that targets IL-4Rα and blocks a central pathway in allergic inflammation, is currently in a phase 1 clinical study and is expected to be studied in atopic dermatitis patients commencing in Q1, 2019.
