ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vaccinex, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCNX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering a differentiated approach to treating cancer and neurodegenerative disease through the inhibition of semaphorin 4D (SEMA4D), today announced that results of its Phase 2 SIGNAL study to evaluate its SEMA4D-blocking antibody, pepinemab, in patients with Huntington’s Disease (HD) were published in the August 8, 2022 issue of Nature Medicine1, a leading journal for publication of translational and clinical research. In parallel, a second report has been published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation2 detailing the pathologic impact of SEMA4D on neuroinflammatory cells in both HD and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

Key Points: 
  • These findings encourage continued development of pepinemab as a potential therapy for patients with early manifest symptoms of HD and potentially AD.
  • Accordingly, a phase 1b/2a study of pepinemab in Alzheimers disease has been initiated and is actively enrolling patients (NCT04381468).
  • The mechanism of action of pepinemab, targeting neuroinflammation2, may provide an alternative to other AD therapies that target aggregates of A amyloid.
  • The Nature Medicine publication is available online at https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-022-01919-8 and Journal of Neuroinflammation at https://jneuroinflammation.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12974-022... ; both articles will also be posted on the Vaccinex website.
