Itolizumab & CD6-ALCAM Pathway

Slide 9

CD6 is a co-stimulatory receptor expressed on T cells, differentially expressed on subsets of innate lymphoid (ILC) and natural killer (NK) cells, but not on T regulatory cells (Treg) Activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM), is expressed on both antigen-presenting cells and endothelial/epithelial tissue including the blood-brain-barrier, skin, gut, lung and kidney The binding of CD6-ALCAM is important for: Immune synapse formation Optimal co-stimulation and activation Trafficking into tissues The CD6-ALCAM pathway modulates T cell activity and trafficking and we believe is central to the pathogenesis of multiple immuno-inflammatory diseases CD6-ALCAM Pathway Central to Immuno-inflammation Consuegra-Fernandez et al., Cell Mol Immunol 2018 9

Slide 10

CD6 Expression Associated with T Cell Function Highest levels of CD6 are found on activated T effector cells (Teff) and associated with amplification of the auto-reactive cascade CD6 Low/- CD6 + CD6 Hi CD6 Th1 Th2 Th17 10

Slide 11

CD6-ALCAM Pathway Central to Immuno-inflammation ACTIVITY TRAFFICKING Increased proinflammatory cytokine secretion Suppression of regulatory pathways Increased trafficking of Teff cells into target tissues Optimal immune synapse formation, activation and proliferation 11

Slide 15

Upstream, Disease Modifying Immuno-inflammatory Mechanism Restoration of immune regulation without immunosuppression Inhibition of Teff trafficking into key target organs Synergistic inhibition of multiple Teff cells and cytokines* Itolizumab acts upstream and selectively targets autoreactive effector T cells, while sparing regulatory T cells to promote immune tolerance and durable disease remission *including but not limited to IFN-γ, TNF-α, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-13 and IL-17 Th1 / Th2 / Th17 15
