180 Life Sciences (NASDAQ: ATNF), a clinical-stage biotechnology company, today announced that a team led by researchers at University of Oxford were awarded a grant from the National Institute for Health and Care Research (“NIHR”) in the U.K. to conduct a feasibility trial. The trial will investigate whether anti-tumor necrosis factor (“TNF”) therapy, administered at the time of surgery, can reduce or prevent post operative delirium/cognitive deficit (“post-operative delirium”). “This is a major achievement by the team,” said Dr. Jim Woody, CEO of 180 Life Sciences. “These grants are awarded following a robust peer-review process and are extremely competitive. It means that the team will be able to access many services essential for the conduct of the trial funded by the NIHR, and 180 Life Sciences is delighted to be able to make a significant contribution to further the trial. This dual funding model and collaboration between academia and industry leverages the expertise of both to develop new therapeutic strategies for what we believe is a major unmet medical need, in the most effective way to benefit patients in the shortest possible timescale.”
