About us

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


Novel Mechanism:
Our lead small molecule inhibits inflammation by targeting a novel transcriptional regulator.

Preclinical findings:
Our small molecules have shown exceptional results in animal models for inflammatory diseases such as lung and liver fibrosis as well as several cancers.


The Science

Altay develops novel small molecules against transcription factors that are validated drivers of disease. Our platform, enables us to identify new transcription factor targets in a variety of therapeutic areas and generate inhibitors using our screening approach. Our novel mechanism of inhibition further enables us to drug the "undruggable", giving us a leading advantage over our competitors.

Focused Therapies

Altay focuses on finding safe and potent treatments for chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibrosis, ulcerative colitis, and liver cancer.

Our cellular target is a key driver of inflammation and pathways that drive cell transformation during disease progression.

Pipeline

Clinic by mid 2022. We are focused on finding treatments for chronic inflammatory liver diseases such as NASH and liver cancer. We expect to nominate a lead drug for liver diseases by Q1 of 2021. 


Our pre-clinical studies for prostate cancer and Ewings Sarcoma show great efficacy. We expect to nominate a lead for our prostate cancer program by Q2 of 2021.
