Our Patients

Our Commitment to Patients

Equillium is dedicated to finding new treatments to dramatically improve the lives of patients with diseases where treatment options are limited or not available.

Disease Areas

Equillium's novel immunomodulatory assets target immuno-inflammatory pathways.

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, is currently in a Phase 3 study for patients with acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) and is in a Phase 1b study for patients with lupus/lupus nephritis.

EQ101, a first-in-class tri-specific cytokine inhibitor that selectively targets IL-2, IL-9, and IL-15, is Phase 2 ready and expected to begin enrolling patients in an alopecia areata study in the second half of 2022.

EQ102, a bi-specific cytokine inhibitor that selectively targets IL-15 and IL-21, is ready for clinical development and expected to begin enrolling patients in a Phase 1 study to include patients with celiac disease in the second half of 2022.

Graft-Versus-Host Disease

Hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) provides a potentially curative option for some types of cancer, but it comes with the risk of GVHD. GVHD occurs when the transplanted immune system attacks the recipient’s body and is the leading cause of non-cancer death in stem cell transplant recipients.

Lupus Nephritis

Lupus nephritis is among the most serious complications of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), occurring in 30 – 60% of individuals with SLE. In lupus nephritis, the body’s own immune system attacks the kidneys, causing inflammation and significantly reducing kidney function over time.
