Itolizumab, a first-in-class monoclonal antibody that targets the CD6-ALCAM signaling pathway which plays a central role in the modulation of effector T cells, reported positive data from the Phase 1b EQUATE study in patients with acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) and is now being evaluated in the Phase 3 EQUATOR study. It is also being evaluated in the EQUALISE Phase 1b study for patients with lupus/lupus nephritis.

EQ101 is a first-in-class, tri-specific inhibitor of IL-2, IL-9 and IL-15, three inflammatory cytokines implicated in multiple diseases. It selectively blocks those three key pathogenic cytokines while preserving non-pathogenic signaling related to IL-4, IL-7 and IL-21 and has demonstrated clinical proof-of-concept as a novel cytokine inhibitor through a completed Phase 1/2 study in cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL), a dermato-oncology indication.

EQ102 is a first-in-class, selective inhibitor of IL-15 and IL-21. It has undergone substantial translational work supporting its potential use as a treatment for various gastrointestinal diseases and is Phase 1 ready for a study planned to include a proof-of-concept evaluation in patients with celiac disease, an immune disorder related to gluten exposure. EQ102 is currently formulated for subcutaneous administration where it is positioned to address an unmet need in patients experiencing symptoms despite attempts to maintain a gluten-free diet.
