180 Life Sciences (NASDAQ: ATNF), a clinical-stage biotechnology company, has announced that adalimumab, its anti-TNF treatment, has shown potential to be a cost-effective treatment for people affected by early-stage Dupuytren’s disease. According to the announcement, researchers at Oxford Population Health’s Health Economics Research Centre and the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology have identified the potential; adalimumab is commonly used to treat conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. Currently, there is no approved treatment for early-stage Dupuytren’s disease, which causes the fingers to irreversibly curl into the palm due to nodules of tissue forming cords under the skin, impairing hand function and quality of life. The new research is the result of a recent phase 2b trial led by Professor Jagdeep Nanchahal of the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, University of Oxford; Nanchahal is also a consultant to ATNF. The company noted that the trial found that a course of four adalimumab injections significantly reduced hardness and size of early-stage Dupuytren’s disease nodules. “Determining that adalimumab is likely to be cost effective for early-stage Dupuytren’s disease is an important step towards working to successfully bring the treatment to market and making it widely available to patients,” said 180 Life Sciences CEO Dr. James Woody in the press release. “This, combined with our extensive patent estate, has provided strong interest in ongoing preliminary partnership discussions for the commercialization of this novel therapeutic approach.”
