Logo CohBar, Inc.
CohBar, Inc. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company. The Company is focused on developing therapeutics targeting chronic and age-related diseases. Its processes of identifying nucleic acid sequences encoding native peptides in the mitochondrial genome, developing and optimizing novel analogs of these natural mitochondrial derived peptides (MDPs) and developing and conducting screens to identify and characterize the activities of these are referred to as its technology platform. Its advanced clinical candidate, CB4211, is a therapeutic for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and obesity. CB4211 demonstrated positive effects on reducing biomarkers of liver injury and improving metabolic homeostasis in a Phase 1a/1b clinical study in obese subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. CB4211 is a novel and improved analog of MOTS-c, a naturally occurring MDP. CB5138 Analogs are therapeutics that have demonstrated anti-fibrotic properties in a variety of preclinical models.
