AB Science will host a live webcast on indolent systemic mastocytosis
 on November 20, 2019

AB Science SA (NYSE Euronext – FR0010557264 – AB) is hosting a live webcast on November 20 with key opinion leaders on indolent systemic mastocytosis (ISM) and the role that mastinib may play in treating this disorder.

The webcast will feature a presentation by key opinion leaders who will provide:

  • An overview of mastocytosis.
  • Current treatment options and new treatments in development for the disease.
  • An overview of the masitinib profile and prior Phase 3 results in indolent systemic mastocytosis (published in The Lancet in 2017).

           
AB Science’s management team will also provide an overview of the Company’s planned confirmatory phase 3 trial with oral masitinib in patients with severe ISM unresponsive to optimal symptomatic treatment.

It will be followed by a Q&A session with the key opinion leaders and management of AB Science.

Masitinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor designed to selectively target mast cells and macrophages, through inhibition of c-Kit, Lyn, Fyn, and MCSFR-1 kinases, which may have broad applicability in inflammatory disorders such as ISM and asthma, and neurodegenerative disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis. The Company is at the forefront of clinical development in ISM and recently announced the authorization by ANSM of the Phase 3 confirmatory trial (AB15003) in ISM, and expects to file for marketing authorization based on data from this trial in 2022.

About masitinib
Masitinib is a new orally administered tyrosine kinase inhibitor that targets mast cells and macrophages, important cells for immunity, through inhibiting a limited number of kinases. Based on its unique mechanism of action, masitinib can be developed in a large number of conditions in oncology, in inflammatory diseases, and in certain diseases of the central nervous system. In oncology due to its immunotherapy effect, masitinib can have an effect on survival, alone or in combination with chemotherapy. Through its activity on mast cells and microglia and consequently the inhibition of the activation of the inflammatory process, masitinib can have an effect on the symptoms associated with some inflammatory and central nervous system diseases and the degeneration of these diseases.
