HCW Biologics Inc. Issued U.S. Patent for Foundational Platform Technology

 HCW Biologics Inc. (the “Company”) NASDAQ: HCWB), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing novel immunotherapies to lengthen healthspan by disrupting the link between chronic, low-grade inflammation and age-related diseases, was granted U.S. Patent 11,401,324 which contains claims for immunotherapeutic compounds comprised of a single-chain chimeric polypeptide with two target-binding domains on a scaffold made of an extracellular domain of human tissue factor.

This patent provides intellectual property protection for the lead drug candidate, HCW9302, a single-chain, IL-2-based fusion protein designed to activate and expand regulatory T (“Treg“) cells to suppress the activity of inflammasome-bearing cells and the inflammatory factors which they secrete. Preclinical studies in mouse models have demonstrated the ability of HCW9302 to activate Treg cells and reduce inflammation-related disease pathologies, supporting the potential of HCW9302 to treat a wide variety of autoimmune and proinflammatory diseases. HCW9302 is currently completing IND-enabling activities for an IND application for a clinical trial in an autoimmune disorder.
