About Lenzilumab

Lenzilumab is a proprietary Humaneered® first-in-class monoclonal antibody that has been proven to neutralize GM-CSF, a cytokine of critical importance in the hyperinflammatory cascade, sometimes referred to as cytokine release syndrome, or cytokine storm. Humanigen believes that GM-CSF neutralization with lenzilumab also has the potential to treat patients with Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia ("CMML") and to reduce the hyper-inflammatory cascade known as cytokine release syndrome common to acute Graft vs. Host Disease ("aGvHD"). A study of lenzilumab, known as PREACH-M, is underway for patients with CMML exhibiting RAS pathway mutations. This study builds on evidence from a Phase 1 study, conducted by Humanigen, that showed RAS mutations are associated with hyper-proliferative features, which may be sensitive to GM-CSF neutralization. In the RATinG study, Lenzilumab will be tested to assess its ability to prevent and/or treat aGvHD in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
