MENLO PARK, Calif. and SINGAPORE, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ASLAN Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ASLN), a clinical-stage, immunology-focused biopharmaceutical company developing innovative treatments to transform the lives of patients, today announced that an abstract highlighting new data and insights related to neuronal itch mechanisms through eblasakimab’s targeting of IL-13Rα1 has been accepted for late-breaking poster presentation at the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) Annual Meeting, to be held in-person from May 18 to 21, 2022, in Portland, Oregon.

Ferda Cevikbas PhD, Head of Translational Sciences at ASLAN, will present findings from an ex vivo study in human dorsal root ganglia neurons which showed a significant inhibitory effect of eblasakimab on the IL-4 and IL-13 enhanced sensitization of neuronal itch responses. IL-4 and IL-13 are central to the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis, exacerbate inflammation and exert neuronal enhancer function to itch. Targeting the IL-13Rα1 blocks IL-4 and IL-13 signaling through the Type 2 receptor and could provide a differentiated approach to disrupt the inflammation and heightened itch experienced by AD patients.
