Staggering to think that 50% of all deaths are attributable to inflammation-related diseases. Multiple studies indicate that chronic inflammation triggers a cascade of disease-causing effects. The condition has also been linked to Alzheimer's disease, cancer, heart disease and diabetes among others. Periodic increases in inflammation to combat injury or infection are normal, even necessary to survive. However, the immune system doesn’t shut off in chronic inflammation, continuing to act as if there's a problem — either because one still exists or because the inflammatory response isn’t working correctly. This understanding opens revolutionary new possibilities for treatment and therapeutics.

180 Life Sciences Corp. (NASDAQ: KBLM) is developing novel therapeutics to treat inflammation, the fundamental basis of most disease states. The company is led by distinguished serial biomedical entrepreneurs, who were the first to successfully develop anti-inflammatory drugs such as the anti-TNF biologics and the anti-integrin inhibitors that are now on the market generating multibillions of dollars per year in sales. 180 Life Sciences’ clinical-stage research is now focused on developing the next generation of innovative anti-inflammatory drugs to inhibit the ravages of chronic inflammation and provide relief for millions of patients with inflammatory disease.
