180 Life Sciences (NASDAQ: ATNF), a clinical-stage biotechnology company, is noting a significant milestone reached in a key clinical trial designed to evaluate anti-tumor necrosis factor (“TNF”) for patients with early-stage, pain predominant frozen shoulder. The company announced that the first patient has been randomized in the trial, which is funded by UK-based National Institute of Health and Care Research (“NIHR”); the trial will investigate whether injections of anti-TNF during the early stages of frozen shoulder can reduce or prevent progression of the disease. Sponsored by the University of Oxford, the trial is being led by Professors Sally Hopewell and Jagdeep Nanchahal, who is a consultant for 180 Life Sciences. According to the announcement, 180 Life Sciences has the rights for advancing these studies and commercialization of the trial results. The announced also noted that Sir Marc Feldmann, executive cochair of 180 Life Sciences, is widely recognized for his pioneering work leading up to the first successful use of anti-TNF for treating intractable rheumatoid arthritis; Feldmann observed that anti-TNF has been one of the most successful drug classes of all time, and he is pleased that the company is developing new uses for anti-TNF and conducting clinical trials to fulfil unmet needs that anti-TNF can “ameliorate.” Frozen shoulder is a common condition, affecting an estimated 9% of adults. “Recruiting the first patient for the trial of anti-TNF therapy in frozen shoulder patients is a significant milestone,” said 180 Life Sciences CEO James Woody, MD, in the press release. “Treatment with anti-TNF at the early stage could improve pain and subsequently reduce disability for frozen shoulder patients.”
