Session Title: Adaptive immunity (T cells and B cells) in rheumatic diseases
Abstract Title: "NKTR-358, a Novel IL-2 Conjugate, Stimulates High Levels of Regulatory T cells in Patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus"
About NKTR-358 (LY3471851*)
Autoimmune and inflammatory diseases cause the immune system to mistakenly attack and damage healthy cells in a person's body. A failure of the body's self-tolerance mechanisms enables the formation of the pathogenic T lymphocytes that conduct this attack. NKTR-358 is a potential first-in-class resolution therapeutic that may address this underlying immune system imbalance in people with different autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. It targets the interleukin-2 receptor complex in the body in order to stimulate proliferation of powerful inhibitory immune cells known as regulatory T cells. By activating these cells, NKTR-358 may act to bring the immune system back into balance. Nektar entered into a strategic collaboration with Lilly in 2017 to develop and commercialize NKTR-358.
NKTR-358 is being developed as a self-administered injection for a number of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
*NKTR-358 is referred to as LY3471851 under Lilly-sponsored studies.
