LifeSpan Vision Ventures Invests in Deciduous Therapeutics
NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeSpan Vision Ventures today announced an investment in Deciduous Therapeutics, a pioneering longevity biotechnology company dedicated to enhancing human healthspan by developing innovative medicines targeting the elimination of senescent cells through restoring endogenous immune mechanisms.
Originating from the research lab of Dr. Anil Bhushan at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Deciduous has made groundbreaking discoveries centered on Natural Killer T-cells (NKTs) as a potent endogenous immune mechanism capable of enabling senolysis. The company's in vivo Proof-Of-Concept (POC) studies have demonstrated single-dose efficacy with their lead compound, which restores NKT function, eliminates senescent cells, and resolves both fibrotic and metabolic diseases. Simultaneously, they are extending the platform to test additional age-related diseases.
Andrew Worden, Founding Partner of LifeSpan Vision Ventures, stated: "Our investment in Deciduous Therapeutics aligns with our mission to support companies dedicated to longevity and age-related disease therapeutics. Deciduous Therapeutics is taking an innovative approach to senescence, initially targeting fibrotic and metabolic diseases, but their platform technology holds immense potential for various age-related conditions. We are excited to collaborate with such an exceptional team of pioneers in the field of longevity biotechnology and eagerly anticipate their impact on the treatment of age-related diseases."
