Arena Pharmaceuticals' Presence at United European Gastroenterology Week Bolsters Commitment to the Gastrointestinal Disease Community
- New open-label extension data from the Phase 2 OASIS trial for etrasimod in ulcerative colitis
- Arena sponsored breakfast symposium: Will oral therapies change the IBD treatment landscape?
- Visit Arena in the exhibit hall at booth #78
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARNA) will present new open-label extension data from the Phase 2 OASIS trial for its investigative drug candidate etrasimod, a next-generation, once-daily, oral, selective sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator, in patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) at the 25th Annual United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week. Arena will also present data for olorinab, a peripherally acting, highly selective, full agonist of the cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2), in development for the treatment of visceral pain associated with gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. UEG Week is taking place October 19-23, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain.
In addition to the data presentations, Arena is sponsoring a satellite breakfast symposium (details below) and exhibiting at booth #78. Find out more about Arena's ongoing and planned clinical trials in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Abstract Identification: #OP212
Etrasimod (APD334) is a once-daily, oral, selective sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator, discovered by Arena, designed to provide systemic and local cell modulation by targeting S1P receptor subtypes 1, 4 and 5. Etrasimod has therapeutic potential in immune and inflammatory-mediated diseases such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and atopic dermatitis. S1P receptors have been demonstrated to be involved in the modulation of several biological responses, including lymphocyte trafficking from lymph nodes to the peripheral blood. By isolating subpopulations of lymphocytes in lymph nodes, fewer immune cells are available in the circulating blood to effect tissue damage.
