Abstract Title: C. Fanton, et al., "Selective Expansion of Regulatory T-Cells in Humans by a Novel IL-2 Conjugate T-Reg Stimulator, NKTR-358, Being Developed for the Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases"
NKTR-358 is a potential first-in-class resolution therapeutic that may address an underlying immune system imbalance in patients with many autoimmune conditions. It targets the interleukin (IL-2) receptor complex in the body in order to stimulate proliferation of inhibitory immune cells known as regulatory T cells. By activating these cells, NKTR-358 is designed to act to bring the immune system back into balance.
