About Immune Therapeutics, Inc.

Immune Therapeutics, Inc. [F/K/A TNI Biotech, Inc.] is a biotechnology company working to combat chronic, life-threatening diseases through the activation and modulation of the body’s immune system using our patented immunotherapy. Its products and immunotherapy technologies are designed to harness the power of the immune system to improve the treatment of cancer, infections such as HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases.

Its proprietary technology, therapies, and patents include the treatment of a wide range of cancers. The most advanced clinical programs involve immunotherapy with met-enkephalin (MENK) (sometimes referred to as opioid growth factor) and our Low Dose Naltrexone product (LDN) or Lodonal™, which have been shown to stimulate the immune system even in patients with advanced cancer.

Even though management considers any condition that results in altered-immune response a target for investigation, we will most likely pursue additional investigations for MENK and LDN as valuable candidates in the treatment of autoimmune states such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis; as an adjunct in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatments or surgery; and as a complement to antibiotics in the treatment of a variety of infectious diseases, including patients with HIV/AIDS, in combination with retroviral drug therapy.
