Momenta Pharmaceuticals to Host R&D Day on October 11, 2018
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MNTA) today announced that it will host a live webcast of its R&D Day on Thursday, October 11, 2018 beginning at 8:30 am ET. The event is being held in New York, NY.
Momenta’s leadership team plans to highlight the clinical development strategy for its pipeline of novel drug candidates for immune-mediated disorders. Presentations will include:
- Data from the Phase 1 study in healthy volunteers for M281, a potentially best-in-class anti-FcRn antibody engineered to reduce circulating pathogenic IgG antibodies by blocking endogenous IgG recycling via FcRn, and the indications for the planned Phase 2 proof of concept studies. Momenta will be joined by a key opinion leader to discuss one of the indications;
- Overview of the Phase 1/2 proof of concept study in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) for M254, a hyper-sialylated immunoglobulin (hsIgG) designed as a high potency alternative to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) to remediate limitations of that therapeutic approach; and
- Overview of Momenta’s research platform and additional pipeline expansion opportunities.
The live webcast of this event will be accessible through the "Investors" section of the company's website located at www.momentapharma.com. A webcast replay of the presentation will be posted on the Momenta website approximately two hours after the event.
