CytoDyn Inc. a late-stage biotechnology company developing leronlimab, a CCR5 antagonist with the potential for multiple therapeutic indications, announced that Health Canada authorized the emergency use of leronlimab for the treatment of a patient with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC).

Nader Pourhassan, Ph.D., CytoDyn’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are encouraged by Health Canada’s emergency use approval of leronlimab, which we believe could have potential benefit as a therapeutic option for treating mTNBC. We now plan to ask Health Canada to allow expanded access use for all mTNBC patients who might have no other treatment options. We are also seeking similar approvals in other countries and look forward to providing leronlimab for mTNBC patients, as well as for treatment of other solid tumor cancers, in the future. In addition, we will be filing for expanded access use for mTNBC patients in the U.S. shortly.”
