The results were presented at the 14th Congress of European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) Conference in Denmark on 7 March 2019.
Consistent with earlier in vitro studies conducted by Immutep on the immunosuppressive activity of IMP761, this new study in a non-human primate animal model showed that IMP761 decreases inflammatory T cell infiltration induced by intra-dermal injection of an antigen.
