Potential Breakthrough in Anti-Fibrotic Therapies

Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), is a critical mediator in the progression of fibrosis and related serious diseases. FibroGen is developing Pamrevlumab, a fully-human monoclonal antibody that inhibits the activity of CTGF and in turn can benefit in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) along with Pancreatic Cancer, and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

FibroGen recently announced positive top line data for Pamrevlumab from phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study and two combination safety sub-studies of Pamrevlumab in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
