WASHINGTON, Nov. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immunomedics, Inc. (Nasdaq:IMMU), a biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development of monoclonal antibody-based products for the targeted treatment of cancer, autoimmune and other serious diseases, today announced that patients with moderate-to-severe lupus who had received continued cycles of epratuzumab therapy maintained improvements or further improved their lupus disease activity over a timeframe of approximately 4 years. Importantly, lower levels of median corticosteroid use were also maintained throughout the study.
