Bio, Inc. has been granted an exclusive license to bring to market an innovative diagnostic tool and a promising early-stage treatment for Crohn’s disease. This astounding development is thanks to the tireless efforts of Bio’s co-founder Dr. Charles Elson and his team at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The technology promises to be a game-changer in the field of Crohn’s disease and its effective treatment.
ImmPrev Bio, Inc., recently awarded an exclusive license from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), has received the patent to commercialize a brand-new diagnostic tool and treatment for Crohn’s Disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease. This groundbreaking discovery was the result of the research efforts at Dr. Charles Elson’s laboratory at UAB and the Company’s co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer.
ImmPrev Bio has discovered a groundbreaking metabolic therapy for Crohn’s disease, and it all started with the discovery that more than half of those suffering from the condition present with a high immune response to a particular subset of gut bacteria. The preclinical data for this therapy is strong and shows promise that it could represent a lasting solution for those in surgically or medically induced remission, as well as those with new-onset Crohn’s. This therapy could even pave the way for treatments of other immune-mediated diseases in the future!
At ImmPrev Bio, we are committed to bringing a more effective treatment model for Crohn’s disease sufferers, one that can identify the disease at early stages and provide improved follow-up care and treatment. Our aim is to bring better outcomes for our patients, and we look forward to continuing to explore this promising therapy. Dr. Elson, our Chief Scientific Officer, is confident in our approach and firmly believes our innovations have the potential to truly make a difference.
Dr. Elson’s cutting-edge research into Crohn’s disease treatments has recently secured an early-stage investment from the First Avenue Ventures Life Science Fund I – a Birmingham based venture fund with a strategic focus on life sciences. At the helm of this innovative venture is ImmPrev Bio, an organization which strives to develop a new grasp of hope for patients suffering from Crohn’s disease.
Mike Goodrich, Principal of the Life Science Fund I, expressed his enthusiasm for the undertaking: “We are thrilled to be working with Dr. Elson on this innovative diagnostic and therapy for Crohn’s disease. We are also proud to have invested in ImmPrev Bio, a company building on Elson’s outstanding research to develop a treatment with the potential to offer new hope for Crohn’s disease patients.”
ImmPrev Bio is excited to partner with Cascadia Drug Development Group in the commercialization of our lead compound. Our experienced industry experts are motivated by their passion for immunology and drug development, and are dedicated to taking the next step and conducting pre-clinical experiments. As we work together with our strategic partners, we look forward to the progress of IND-enabling studies to further confirm our success.
