Stelvio Therapeutics is a privately held, biotechnology company based in San Diego, California. Founded in 2017, the company focuses on developing a pipeline of alternative treatments for malignant glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common and lethal brain tumor.
Stelvio's approach to treating cancer involves identifying compounds that drive the differentiation of cancer stem cells into benign cell types. It then induces the differentiation of tumor propagating cells into non-tumorigenic cells.
