SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kezar Life Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: KZR), a clinical-stage biotechnology company discovering and developing novel small molecule therapeutics to treat unmet needs in autoimmune disease and cancer, today announced presentations during upcoming major scientific conferences.

“Kezar’s unique ability to translate novel science into viable treatment options is underscored by the selection of three abstracts featuring data from both of our programs targeting protein homeostasis,” said Christopher Kirk, PhD, Kezar’s President and Chief Scientific Officer. “The acceptance of a pre-clinical abstract to ASCO serves as a testament to the innovative mechanism and potential of KZR-261 to target a number of solid and liquid tumor types. Furthermore, the growing body of clinical data demonstrating the broad immunomodulatory effects of KZR-616 supports its potential to treat a wide range of severe autoimmune diseases.”

Following is an overview of Kezar’s upcoming scientific presentations, which will also be made available on the Company’s website:
