Gallant Therapeutics

Gallant is developing multiple types of allogeneic or “off-the-shelf” cellular therapies for use in many feline and canine diseases.

The allogeneic therapies are all regulated by the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM). Gallant has five INADs open currently, and participates in the FDA CVM Veterinary Innovation Program (VIP) that helps to “fast track” innovative therapies in development.

Gallant uses various cells types depending on the indication being treated incuding, uterine-derived stromal cells, adipose-derived stromal cells and “primed” cell therapies that are treated with various factors to drive them toward specific effectiveness outcomes such as immunomodulation for example.

  • Dori Borjesson DVM, PhD, MPVM

    Advisor
    Dr. Borjesson has been Washington State University dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine since July 2020 after more than a decade at the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, where she established herself as a respected pioneer and leader in the field of veterinary medicine. She served in various leadership roles at UC-Davis, including as chair of the Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology; director of the Clinical Regenerative Medicine Laboratory; and inaugural director of the Veterinary Institute for Regenerative Cure. She specialized in adult-derived stem cell research and spent her last 12 years at UC-Davis examining how stem cells alter the immune system. A board-certified veterinary clinical pathologist, Dr. Borjesson and has more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. She holds two patents in mesenchymal stem cells and immunomodulation, and some of her recent research has focused on naturally occurring inflammatory bowel disease in dogs, chronic gingivostomatitis in cats and spinal cord injury in dogs She received the Zoetis Research Excellence award in 2014 for the exceptional quality and productivity of her research efforts in regenerative medicine with an emphasis on utilizing mesenchymal stem cells as a therapeutic option for both orthopedic injury (such as bone and tendon damage) and in immunomodulation....
