CohBar (NASDAQ: CWBR) is a clinical stage biotechnology company exploiting the power of the mitochondria and the peptides encoded in its genome to develop potential breakthrough therapeutics targeting chronic and age-related diseases. The company developed the Mito+ platform, building on the insight of the company’s founders that certain mitochondrially encoded peptides produce effects that are not limited to local regulation within the mitochondria and may have important roles to play in critical systemic biological pathways quite distinct from what has traditionally been thought of as mitochondrial function. CohBar is using this novel approach to develop analogs of these natural peptides to treat a variety of serious conditions, with a focus on diseases involving inflammation and fibrosis. The company’s lead compound, CB4211, which is under development for the treatment of NASH and obesity, completed a successful Phase 1a/1b clinical trial in August 2021. In addition, CohBar has four preclinical programs, the most advanced of which is CB5138-3, a peptide with broad anti-fibrotic and anti-inflammatory properties. This program is currently in IND-enabling studies with an initial indication of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The company also has a program in ARDS, including COVID-19 associated ARDS, as well as two peptide families with potential utility in treating various forms of cancer.
