The company’s ABOUT
Forty Seven Inc. is a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company. It is developing treatments that target cancer immune evasion pathways. The technology for that is licensed from Stanford University.
The company’s main program, magrolimab, is a monoclonal antibody against the CD47 receptor. This antibody is being estimated in various clinical studies in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome, ovarian cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, acute myeloid leukemia, and colorectal carcinoma.
The company is dedicated to developing a defense against cancer. They strongly believe that CD47-SIRP-alpha is a novel immune pathway. This approach in anti-cancer therapy means patients can fight cancer with their immune cells. Its new class of immunotherapies gives a new pathway to patients living with cancer and may have no other option. This discovery came from Irv Weissman and his colleagues at Stanford University who identified CD47-SIRP-alpha.
The company is established in 2015.
