180 Life Sciences (NASDAQ: ATNF), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of novel drugs that fulfill unmet needs in inflammatory diseases, fibrosis and pain, has entered into a license agreement with the University of Oxford. The exclusive global agreement outlines planned development and commercialization of HMGB1, a regenerative molecule for promoting liver repair and regeneration. According to the company, no approved options exist for limiting damage and fibrosis in patients with liver disorders such as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (“NASH”). 180 Life Sciences is working with Oxford’s Professor Jagdeep Nanchahal to pursue a program to explore novel therapeutic targets. The team has made significant progress, and has already identified a physiological pathway shown to lead to regeneration of tissues. “Liver diseases represent a large unmet medical need,” said 180 Life Sciences CEO Dr. James Woody in the press release. “NASH is expected to become the principal indication for liver transplantation in the USA, with the attendant problems of immunosuppression and shortages of suitable donors. We believe an effective treatment that promotes regeneration and limits hepatocellular damage and fibrosis has the potential to revolutionize the management of patients.”
