Navrogen, Inc., a privately held preclinical biotechnology company, announced today that it has raised $3.0M from an equity financing to support its Humoral Immuno-Oncology (HIO) discovery platform and preclinical therapeutic pipeline activities. HIO is a process by which tumors produce factors that suppress a patient’s humoral immune response against malignant tissues. The major use of proceeds will focus on advancing the company’s lead HIO-refractory, anti-mesothelin NAV-001 antibody drug conjugate program and its NK cell activator platforms that specifically address HIO suppressed cancers and immune-mediated diseases. The financing was led by Tellus BioVentures along with existing investors. As part of the financing, Lonnie Moulder, Managing Member of Tellus, and Allan Bedwick, will join the Navrogen Board of Directors.
