SAN DIEGO, May 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Belite Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLTE), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical drug development company focused on advancing novel therapeutics targeting degenerative retinal diseases that have significant unmet medical needs, today announced that the executive management team will participate in a Key Opinion Leader Webinar hosted by Jennifer Kim, Director, Equity Research, of Cantor Fitzgerald on Monday, May 13, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

The event will feature Michel Michaelides, BSc, MB BS, MD(Res), FRCOphth, FACS (University College London Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital), who will discuss an overview of the unmet need for treatments in Stargardt disease (STGD1) and Geographic Atrophy (GA). Dr. Michaelides will also review the competitive landscape, real world applications for Tinlarebant in STGD1 and GA, and the additional analysis on data from Belite’s Phase 2 clinical trial in STGD1 recently published at ARVO.

Tinlarebant (LBS-008) is a novel oral, once daily retinol binding protein 4 (RBP4) antagonist designed to reduce the accumulation of vitamin-A based toxins in the eye, which have been implicated in the onset and progression of STGD1 and also contribute to disease progression in GA, or advanced Dry AMD. Tinlarebant has been granted Fast Track Designation and Rare Pediatric Disease designation in the U.S., and Orphan Drug Designation in the U.S., Europe, and Japan for the treatment of STGD1.
