During the fourth quarter of 2016, CohBar Inc. announced the discovery of a large number of new biologically active peptides encoded within the mitochondrial genome and the filing of over 50 additional related provisional patent applications.
In September 2016, CohBar Inc. announced the selection of two analogs from the company's MOTS-c program for advancement into IND-enabling activities. The drug candidates, CB4209 and CB4211, demonstrated significant therapeutic potential in pre-clinical models for the treatment of obesity, with additional confirmatory studies planned to determine therapeutic potential for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and as a potential add-on to other drugs for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
About CohBar CohBar (OTCQX: CWBR and TSXV: COB.U) is a preclinical stage biotechnology company focused on the research and development of mitochondria based therapeutics (MBTs), an emerging class of drugs for the treatment of age-related diseases. MBTs originate from the discovery by CohBar's founders of a novel group of peptides within the mitochondrial genome, which regulate metabolism and cell death and whose biological activity declines with age. CohBar's efforts focus on the development of these mitochondrial-derived peptides (MDPs) into clinically relevant MBTs that offer the potential to address a broad range of age-related diseases, including obesity, fatty liver disease, Type-2 diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders. To date, the Company and its founders have discovered more than 50 biologically active mitochondrial peptides.
About CohBar's Clinical Development Program CohBar's lead clinical development program is based on MOTS-c, a mitochondrial-derived peptide discovered in 2012 by the Company's founders and their academic collaborators, whose research has shown that MOTS-c plays a significant role in the regulation of metabolism. The Company has developed optimized analogs of the MOTS-c peptide, CB4209 and CB4211, as drug candidates for advancement into IND-enabling activities. These drug candidates have demonstrated significant therapeutic potential in preclinical models for the treatment of obesity, with additional ongoing studies to determine their therapeutic potential for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), an advanced form of fatty liver disease, and as an add-on to other drugs for the treatment of Type-2 diabetes.
