Inflazome UK Ltd

Great Shelford, East Midlands, United Kingdom

Company Summary:

Inflazome Limited is developing first in class, orally available drugs to address clinical unmet needs in inflammatory diseases, such as Asthma, Arthritis, IBD, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease, with composition of matter and medical use IP coverage for new chemical entities that effect potent inhibition of inflammasome-driven release of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL1-beta/IL-18. In addition, they block innate immune cell pyroptosis (uncontrolled lytic cell death), a process that drives chronic inflammation

Inflazome has made thousands of molecules in an NLRP3 inflammasome inhibitor program. Efficacy has been shown in more than 50 animal models of inflammatory disease, many cross validated by assays with ex-vivo human tissues. Inflazome has established a leading IP position having developed current best in class drug candidates that block activation of one of the hottest drug targets this decade: based around the inflammasome.
