About Sjögren’s Syndrome
Primary Sjögren’s syndrome is a common, systemic autoimmune disease affecting primarily women. An estimated 4 million American women suffer from the disease, which is characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the salivary and lachrymal glands, leading to dry eyes and dry mouth. Up to 70% of patients suffering with Sjögren’s syndrome experience debilitating fatigue, which has a significant negative impact on their quality of life. Currently, there is no approved therapy for the disease.
About Resolve Therapeutics
Resolve Therapeutics is pioneering safe, targeted therapies for underserved autoimmune diseases with large unmet medical need. The Company’s lead compound is RSLV-132, a first-in-class investigational treatment in Phase II development for Sjögren’s syndrome and lupus. The drug eliminates the inflammatory material found in the blood of patients with autoimmune diseases thereby preventing the activation of numerous pro-inflammatory cascades. RSLV-132 removes just the inflammatory stimulating molecules, without shutting down the immune system or interfering with key steps in the innate immune system.
