Kadmon’s ROCK Inhibitor Platform in Fibrosis

Recent studies conducted by Kadmon and others have shown that ROCK
signaling plays a key role in the development of pulmonary fibrosis, or
scarring of the lungs that can lead to organ failure and death.
Preclinical research by Kadmon has demonstrated that ROCK inhibition
blocks multiple biochemical and biomechanical signals required for IPF
disease progression. Kadmon has a portfolio of ROCK inhibitors in
preclinical discovery for the treatment of fibrotic diseases. Kadmon is
conducting a Phase 2 clinical trial in IPF.
