(Nasdaq: HGEN) (“Humanigen”) has been informed of preliminary topline results from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID) ACTIV-5/BET-B trial evaluating lenzilumab plus remdesivir versus placebo plus remdesivir in hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

"We are grateful for the constructive collaboration with NIH/NIAID; while the ACTIV-5/BET-B study showed signs of a clinical effect, the benefit demonstrated was not able to confirm the positive results we saw in our Phase 3 LIVE-AIR study," said Cameron Durrant, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Humanigen.
