We believe in the future of precision medicine

CytoDyn believes in the future of precision medicine... more specificity, less side effects. Our target, the CCR5 receptor, has been implicated in multiple disease processes from HIV, NASH, NAFLD/NASH, to metastatic cancer. Leronlimab, our CCR5 antagonist, is a once-a-week, subcutaneous injection. One molecule with multiple opportunities.

Welcome to the future of target specific, precision medicine. Welcome to CytoDyn.

We are a biotechnology company focused on developing innovative treatments for multiple therapeutic indications. Our lead candidate leronlimab (PRO 140) belongs to a new class of therapeutics called viral-entry inhibitors and is an experimental monoclonal antibody for HIV treatment.

Leronlimab for HIV

A Fully Humanized Monoclonal Antibody

Leronlimab (PRO 140) is a fully humanized monoclonal antibody directed against CCR5, a molecular portal used by HIV to enter T cells. Leronlimab (PRO 140) blocks the precise sites on CCR5 used by HIV to enter the cell thereby protecting healthy cells from viral entry.

CCR5 for Cancer

Developing CCR5 Technology in Cancer Indications

Based on the work of leading oncologists and researchers who played an instrumental role in identifying the role of CCR5 in cancer indications, we continue to explore the role of leronlimab in oncology and have obtained promising results from various pre-clinical studies.

The Science of Developing Monoclonal Antibodies

In the 1980s, a team of scientists developed a technique that fused a common type of tumor cell with a single mouse antibody-producing cell. The resulting hybrid cells all secreted the exact same antibody as the original mouse antibody-producing cell and thus came to be known as monoclonal antibodies. Since then, monoclonal antibodies have come to represent one of the fastest expanding opportunities in the biotechnology/pharma sector.
