Kadmon Corporation Presents Results of KD025 Preclinical and Clinical Studies at AAI Annual Meeting

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Kadmon Corporation, LLC, today announced the presentation of preclinical and clinical data from studies of KD025, the Company's Phase 2, orally bioavailable, potent and highly selective inhibitor of ROCK 2 (Rho-associated coiled-coiled kinase 2), used in models of autoimmune disease such as a collagen induced arthritis and lupus. The data were presented at the "T Helper Cell Differentiation and Cytokine Expression" session by Alexandra Zanin-Zhorov, Ph.D., Kadmon's Senior Director of Immunology, at "Immunology 2014™," the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Immunologists (AAI), held May 2-6, 2014 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The poster, entitled "Selective ROCK2 inhibitor down-regulates pro-inflammatory T cell responses via shifting Th17/Treg balance," is available on the Kadmon website at www.kadmon.com.

"As we grow our understanding of the ROCK2 pathway and its critical role in regulating cell biology, immune response and immune homeostasis, we underscore the transformative potential of KD025 in broadly prevalent autoimmune diseases," said Samuel D. Waksal, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Kadmon. "We continue to make important progress in our clinical program for KD025, where we recently announced the initiation of a Phase 2a study in psoriasis, and expect to initiate additional Phase 2 studies in lupus nephritis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and ...

Application transformation and DevOps practices are two sides of the same coin. Enterprises that want to capture value faster, need to deliver value faster – time value of money principle. To do that enterprises need to build cloud-native apps as microservices by empowering teams to build, ship, and run in production. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Neil Gehani, senior product manager at HPE, discussed what every business should plan for how to structure their teams to delive...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world. The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
