Harnessing innate power: Targeting the root causes of inflammation and fibrosis

Our approach is to target upstream innate immune amplifiers that underpin persistent inflammatory and fibrotic responses to restore tissue homeostasis and disrupt disease progression.

At Calluna Pharma we are developing first-in-class therapies designed to defeat chronic inflammation and fibrosis at the source. Our innovative therapeutic approach targets upstream amplifiers of disease offering potential applicability across a diverse array of medical conditions. Calluna Pharma is a clinical stage company driven by a commitment to improve patient outcomes in areas where existing treatments are sub-optimal.

We believe in the power of immunology to push boundaries, challenge the status quo, and develop therapies that will make a real difference for people living with serious diseases.

We have four promising therapies in the pipeline, with preclinical proof of concept data.


Explores targeted pleiotropism, offering a novel approach to fibrosis and inflammation treatment.


Developed to treat myocardial infarction induced reperfusion injury via the neutralisation of oxidised phospholipids (OxPL) in the myocardium.


Explores targeted pleiotropism across a range of inflammatory and fibrotic conditions.


Leveraging the benefits of neutralising both OxPL and S100A4 in inflammation and fibrosis settings.
