BioMedNewsBreaks – 180 Life Sciences Corp. Featured in NNW Editorial Discussing Big Pharma Acquisitions

October 21, 2020 10:52:53

180 Life Sciences Corp. was discussed prominently in an editorial published by NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), one of 50-plus brands in the InvestorBrandNetwork (“IBN”). The editorial, titled “Banking on the Next Blockbuster Drug,” discusses the significant amounts of time and money being invested by big pharma companies in the pursuit of new drugs, especially those that offer the potential to become blockbuster drugs. A blockbuster drug, or one that generates more than $1 billion in annual sales, can provide enormous benefits for the company that owns and manufactures it. Therefore, large companies operating in the pharmaceutical space commonly acquire promising new drugs — and the companies that are developing those drugs. 180 Life Sciences is one of those companies. 180 Life Sciences Corpwas founded by four scientists that have a successful track record of developing new therapeutics that were acquired by larger pharmaceutical companies, sometimes for billions of dollars. The group of renowned scientist-entrepreneurs is focusing on replicating their past success with a pipeline of drug candidates in sequential stages of development that target untapped markets with significant potential.
