About Humanigen, Inc.
Humanigen, Inc. is developing its portfolio of next-generation cell and gene therapies for the treatment of cancers via its novel, cutting-edge GM-CSF neutralization and gene-knockout platforms. The company is focused on breaking the efficacy/toxicity linkage with T-cell therapies, making T-cell therapies potentially safer, more effective and more efficiently administered for patients and providers thereby improving healthcare resource utilization for payers. The company’s immediate focus is combining FDA-approved and development stage CAR-T therapies with lenzilumab, the company’s proprietary Humaneered® anti-human-GM-CSF immunotherapy, which is its lead product candidate. A clinical collaboration with Kite, a Gilead Company, was recently announced to evaluate the sequential use of lenzilumab with Yescarta®, axicabtagene ciloleucel, in a multicenter clinical trial in adults with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma. The company is also focused on creating next-generation combinatory gene-edited CAR-T therapies using GM-CSF gene knockout technologies and developing its own portfolio of proprietary first-in-class CAR-Ts leveraging ifabotuzumab (anti-EphA3 immunotherapy) for various hematologic and solid cancers and HGEN005 (anti-EMR1 immunotherapy) for various eosinophilic disorders. The company is also exploring the effectiveness of its GM-CSF neutralization technologies (either through the use of lenzilumab as a neutralizing antibody or through GM-CSF gene knockout) in combination with other CAR-T and immunotherapy treatments to break the efficacy/toxicity linkage and prevent and/or treat graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) in patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT. The company has established several partnerships with leading institutions to advance its innovative cell and gene therapy pipeline. For more information, visit www.humanigen.com
