Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ARWR) today announced that it will host a pulmonary research & development (R&D) day to discuss its emerging pipeline of pulmonary targeted RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutic candidates from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET on May 26, 2022, in New York City. The R&D day will feature presentations from key opinion leaders, Mario Castro, M.D., MPH (University of Kansas Medical Center) and Matthias Salathe, M.D. (University of Kansas Medical Center), who will discuss the current treatment landscape and unmet medical need in treating patients with muco-obstructive and inflammatory pulmonary diseases.
The R&D day will also feature presentations from the Arrowhead team, who will discuss the company’s proprietary pulmonary Targeted RNAi Molecule (TRiMTM) platform and the therapeutic potential of the investigational RNAi candidates, ARO-MUC5AC and ARO-RAGE, in these disease areas:
- ARO-MUC5AC is designed to reduce expression of mucin 5AC (MUC5AC) as a potential treatment for various muco-obstructive pulmonary diseases
- ARO-RAGE is designed to reduce expression of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) as a potential treatment for various obstructive inflammatory pulmonary diseases
Drs. Castro and Salathe, and the Arrowhead team will be available to answer questions following the event.
This event is intended for institutional investors, sell-side research analysts, and business development professionals only. Please RSVP in advance if you plan to attend, as space is limited. To request a seat, please click here to register.
A copy of the presentation materials and a webcast link will be available on the Events and Presentations page under the Investors section of the Arrowhead website.
About Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals
Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, Arrowhead therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep, and durable knockdown of target genes. RNA interference, or RNAi, is a mechanism present in living cells that inhibits the expression of a specific gene, thereby affecting the production of a specific protein. Arrowhead’s RNAi-based therapeutics leverage this natural pathway of gene silencing.
