Short Hills, New Jersey–(Newsfile Corp. – July 26, 2022) – Humanigen, Inc. (NASDAQ: HGEN) (“Humanigen”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing lenzilumab, a first-in class antibody that neutralizes granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), today announced a strategic realignment of its pipeline and resources to achieve key clinical milestones.
