Humanigen, Inc. (Nasdaq: HGEN) (“Humanigen”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing lenzilumab (LENZ®), a first-in class antibody that neutralizes granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022.
“We have made excellent progress on the strategic realignment announced in July. We have increased the number of sites for the PREACH-M study in Australia of lenzilumab in chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (‘CMML’), a rare blood cancer, and have interest from top oncology centers in the United States. We are on track to enroll the first patient in the RATinG study in the UK of lenzilumab in acute graft versus host disease (‘aGvHD’) and expect dosing soon,” stated Cameron Durrant, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Humanigen. “Given the positive results from the company’s LIVE-AIR study and the survival trend observed in the ACTIV-5/BET-B study, we have interest from a global group of leading institutions and research networks to include lenzilumab in their large-scale, multinational studies of COVID-19. Tocilizumab and baricitinib demonstrated mortality benefit following inclusion in such studies despite having failed to do so in smaller studies. We are exploring the requirements for inclusion in these studies and plan to provide an update before the end of 2022. In addition, we are currently assessing requests for investigator-initiated trials (‘IIT’s’) of lenzilumab in combination with CAR-T therapies and plan to continue the development of ifabotuzumab (‘iFab’), an EpAh-3 targeted monoclonal antibody currently in Phase 1 development, as part of an antibody drug conjugate (‘ADC’), for certain solid tumors in Australia.”.
