WEP Clinical Inc. (WEP) is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Sellas Life Sciences Group, Inc. (“Sellas”), a late-stage clinical biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel therapies for various cancer indications. Together, they will launch an Expanded Access Program (EAP) for galinpepimut-S (GPS).

Jas Khera, Managing Director of WEP, said:
“We are excited to be working with Sellas and look forward to supporting the company, and the patients that need GPS, with its expanded access efforts.
