Mission: SELLAS Life Sciences is a development-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on immunotherapies to treat multiple myeloma and ovarian cancer. It has branched out to mesothelioma, a cancer with a poor prognosis linked to the inhalation of asbestos.

Comment: The company just received Fast Track Designation for its lead candidate, Galinpepimut-S, which it licensed from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The treatment is currently performing admirably in Phase II clinical trials for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma, inducing CD8 and CD4+ T cells with a favorable tolerability and safety profile.
