About ImmuPharma PLC

ImmuPharma PLC (LSE AIM: IMM - Euronext Growth: ALIMM) is a specialty biopharmaceutical company that discovers and develops peptide-based therapeutics. The Company's portfolio includes novel peptide therapeutics for autoimmune diseases, anti-infectives, metabolic diseases and cancer.

 

The lead program, Lupuzor™, is a first-in class autophagy immunomodulator which is in Phase III for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus / SLE).
