Corbus Pharmaceuticals to Present Gene Expression Data from Recent Phase 2 Systemic Sclerosis Study Demonstrating JBT-101 Inhibits Inflammation and Fibrosis Pathways

NORWOOD, MA — (Marketwired) — 03/08/17 — Corbus Pharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRBP) (“Corbus” or the “Company”), a clinical stage drug development company targeting rare, chronic, serious inflammatory and fibrotic diseases, announced today that Michael L. Whitfield, Ph.D., Professor of Molecular and Systems Biology, Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine and Scientific Founder of Celdara Medical, LLC, will present data demonstrating JBT-101 treatment of systemic sclerosis patients inhibits gene expression of key regulatory proteins in molecular pathways associated with activating inflammation and fibrosis, while increasing gene expression in pathways associated with lipid metabolism responsible for resolving inflammation. The data were obtained from analyses of skin biopsies taken from systemic sclerosis patients before and after 12 weeks of treatment with JBT-101 in the Company’s recently completed Phase 2 study in diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (“systemic sclerosis”). The presentation will be on March 13, 2017, in New York City, at the Research and Development Day hosted by Corbus.
