Presentation to include clinical data from a phase 2 study of Gruticibart (AB023), a factor XI-targeted antibody being developed for the treatment and prevention of thrombosis and inflammation
PORTLAND, Ore. – December 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Aronora Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing next-generation therapeutics for blood clotting diseases, announced today that clinical data from a phase 2 study of Gruticibart will be presented at the 64th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting, taking place in New Orleans, Dec. 10-13, 2022.
Gruticibart (AB023) is a unique recombinant antibody that targets coagulation factor XI (FXI) and specifically inhibits FXI activation by factor XII without blocking its activation by thrombin. It has been specifically designed to treat and prevent blood clots without causing an increased bleeding risk. This phase 2 study evaluated the safety and efficacy of Gruticibart for the prevention of catheter-associated thrombosis in patients with cancer receiving chemotherapy. Additional information about the trial can be found at https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04465760.
