About CBP-307
CBP-307 is a novel second generation modulator of the sphingosine-1-phosphate 1 receptor (S1P1), a G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) that plays a central role in regulating T cell movement. CBP-307 is being developed as a treatment for a variety of autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS), psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The Phase I trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in healthy volunteers to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of the drug. Completion of the trial is expected later this year.

This insurance is important for our global IP strategy around this key clinical asset, and we continue to prosecute multiple pending applications in China and all key jurisdictions including the United States, Europe and Japan.
