About us

Altay Therapeutics Inc. discovers novel treatments for chronic inflammatory diseases and cancers.

We approach this using small molecule inhibitors targeting key transcriptional regulators validated to be drivers of diseases. We have successfully shown exceptional in vivo efficacy of our small molecules in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and have ongoing studies in numerous oncology indications.
