About Sublimity Therapeutics
Sublimity Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company with offices in Dublin, Ireland, and Solana Beach, California, is dedicated to identifying and creating meaningful new therapies for unmet clinical needs in gastrointestinal and immunological diseases. The company’s lead program, ST-0529, an orally delivered topical formulation of cyclosporine for moderate to severe ulcerative colitis, is in Phase 2 clinical development.  ST-0529 utilizes Sublimity’s proprietary Single-Multiple Pill (SmPill®) technology, a versatile delivery system for solubilizing active therapeutic agents. This technology has broad applications for drugs with poor solubility, poor gastrointestinal permeability, a propensity for degradation in the stomach and by heat, or suboptimal pharmacokinetics. It also provides an avenue to deliver API directly to the gut with a targeted, local approach. This technology has enabled Sublimity to advance a diverse pipeline of oral small molecules that have the potential to make important contributions to human health.  For more information, visit: www.sublimitytherapeutics.com

About Ulcerative Colitis
It is estimated that ulcerative colitis affects approximately 1.7 million patients in North America, Europe and other developed countries. The mainstays of treatment for this disease are anti-TNFs; however, these drugs are limited by their toxicities and safety liabilities. A large portion of patients are either unresponsive to initial front-line anti-TNF therapy or become refractory to treatment within the first year. Despite the introduction of new medicines, these patients still have significant unmet medical needs.
