Autifony Therapeutics Ltd

Autifony Therapeutics is developing pharmaceutical treatments for hearing disorders, which affect a significant proportion of the population. Autifony ‘s approach is focused on Kv3 potassium channel modulation, a novel mechanism of action. These ion channels regulate neuronal activity within the auditory system, and our new drugs aim to treat age related hearing loss and tinnitus. The lead programme entered Phase I clinical trials in May 2013.

Given Autifony’s focus on modulation of Kv3 channels, which have also been implicated in other neurological and psychiatric disorders, there are opportunities for Autifony to investigate these other indications with compounds with different profiles. Autifony was recently awarded Technology Strategy Board funding to progress the development of a candidate drug for the treatment of schizophrenia, working together with academic collaborators at the Universities of Manchester and Newcastle.

Autifony Therapeutics Limited was formed in 2011 as a spin-out from GlaxoSmithKline. The company is privately funded by leading venture capital investors SV Life Sciences, Imperial Innovations and Pfizer Venture Investments. Autifony’s head office is at the Imperial College Incubator in London, and has a subsidiary with medicinal chemistry and biology labs based in Verona, Italy.

Canbex Therapeutics Ltd

Canbex is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and potentially other disorders, through better treatment for spasticity. 

 

Spasticity is the sudden and uncontrollable movement of limbs and torso, and is among the most painful, damaging and debilitating symptoms of MS.  Current drug treatments for spasticity are effective but are plagued by sedative and other side effects that sharply limit their usefulness.

 

Canbex closed a $3.2m financing round led by Merck Serono Ventures in April 2013, and its lead anti-spasticity compound, VSN16R, is set to enter Phase I safety testing.  In studies to date, VSN16R shows substantially improved tolerability compared to other compounds, and is as effective against spasticity as any other agent known.

 

Supported by its leading London-based scientific and clinical team, Canbex believes that VSN16R has the potential to meet an important medical need, and to address a highly attractive commercial opportunity.
