180 Life Sciences (NASDAQ: ATNF, ATNFW), a clinical-stage biotechnology company with its lead indication in Phase 2b/3, focused on the development of novel drugs that fulfill unmet needs in inflammatory diseases, fibrosis and pain, on Monday released a letter to stockholders from its CEO Dr. James Woody. The letter addresses the closing of the merger with KBLM Merger Corp IV, which resulted in 180 Life Sciences now operating as a stand-alone publicly traded company with its common stock listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “ATNF.” In the update, Dr. Woody shares a little about himself and the world class team of scientists, physicians, and executives that now comprise the 180 Life Sciences management team and board of directors. He also discusses the company’s drug pipeline and plans moving forward, including what lies ahead and anticipated critical milestones. “I started my career in biotech as the Chief Scientific Officer and Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Centocor, where I led the team responsible for developing Remicade, the first of the TNF (tumor necrosis factor) inhibitor biologics,” Dr. Woody states in the letter. “This was in collaboration with Prof. Sir Marc Feldmann, one of the founders of 180 Life Sciences and the current Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors. Marc and I go back a long way, to the late 70s. Remicade was a breakthrough product, it was the first anti-TNF to show dramatic efficacy and triggered the ‘antibody revolution.’ According to a report in FiercePharma, Remicade sales topped $7 billion USD in 2016 and were $5 billion in 2019.”
