The Next Generation of Innovative Immunotherapy Agents, Inflammasome Inhibitors, Will Be Addressed in Panel Discussion

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, January 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)

Noble Capital Markets, Inc. (“Noble”) announced it has assembled a panel of scientists and experienced life science executives to present a discussion titled “The Next Generation of Innovative Immunotherapy Agents, Inflammasome Inhibitors” at Noble’s 16th annual small and micro-cap investor conference. NobleCon16 will take place Feb. 16-18, 2020, at the new flagship Hard Rock Guitar Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

It is not often that scientific breakthroughs that could revolutionize medicine are discovered. In this new decade, transformative medical developments in the field of inflammasome inhibitors can be expected, with potential to dramatically improve outcomes for millions of patients suffering from a broad range of chronically life-threatening inflammatory diseases. Inflammatory diseases encompass autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, lupus nephritis , rheumatoid arthritis and colitis; metabolic diseases like diabetes, atherosclerosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NASH) and gout; neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Even injuries such as spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and stroke have an inflammatory component that adversely affects outcomes.

Inflammasomes are important multiprotein signaling complexes that play a critical role in innate immunity, the body’s first line of defense against foreign infectious organisms and cell damage. However, overactivation of inflammasomes can lead to chronic inflammation underlying a variety of inflammatory conditions and diseases, as mentioned above.

To no surprise, innovative and promising research and development in the field of Inflammasomes by small cap emerging growth companies such as Inflammasome Therapeutics, Inc., IFM Therapeutics, Inc., and Zyversa Therapeutics, Inc., has attracted attention and investment from big-name venture capital firms and large pharma such as Bristol Myers Squibb, Novartis, Genentech/Roche, and Boehringer Ingelheim, validating inflammasomes as an important new therapeutic target.

To learn more about the latest developments targeting inflammasomes and potential for attractive investment returns, please join us for the panel discussion titled “Inflammasomes, the next generation of innovative immunotherapy agents,” which will take place on Monday, Feb. 17, 2020, at 10 a.m. EST immediately following the keynote address by the 43rd governor of the state of Florida, Jeb Bush.

Panel members are co-founders, CEOs and leading-edge scientists of emerging growth companies in the inflammasome space, with venture capital firm representation:

  • Paul Ashton, Ph.D., President and CEO, Inflammasome Therapeutics
  • Gary D. Glick Ph.D., Founder and Executive Chair, IFM Therapeutics
  • Stephen C. Glover, Co-founder, CEO, and President, Zyversa Therapeutics
  • Robert W. Keane Ph.D., Co-founder, InflamaCORE
  • Clay B. Thorp, General Partner and Co-founder, Hatteras Venture Partners

Strong investment interest from VC investors as well as increased M&A activity by large pharma companies in the inflammasome field make this prestigious panel of strategists, scientists, investors and founders very timely and one of the cornerstone presentations at NobleCon16.

“Bringing together a leading group of experts actively involved in potential breakthroughs and transformative medical therapies excites me – both on a personal and business level,” said Nico Pronk, CEO of Noble.

Noble will announce several more panels covering natural resources, metals exploration, media, transportation sectors and cannabis.
