Vedanta Biosciences Announces Licence Agreement with Riken, the University of Tokyo and Azabu University

Vedanta Biosciences announced a licence agreement with RIKEN, the University of Tokyo and Azabu University for technology developed by RIKEN team leader and Vedanta co-founder and scientific advisory board member, Kenya Honda, M.D., Ph.D. The new technology has potential clinical applications in infectious disease, vaccine design and immuno-oncology. Vedanta also received a second patent issuance in Japan for key intellectual property. Under the terms of the agreement, Vedanta will collaborate with Dr. Honda's lab to investigate potential pharmaceutical candidates involving bacterial strains that activate immune cells in the human gut called Th17 cells. Th17 cells are a specialized group of immune cells that may help protect the body against infectious pathogens and are also a potential target in the treatment of cancer. Details on the technology - immune-boosting microbes isolated from the human gut - were published in October 2015 in the prestigious scientific journal Cell.1 In the published study, Honda and colleagues identified and isolated bacterial strains from humans that can induce Th17 cells and demonstrated that these strains induce Th17 responses by adhering to cells in the intestine.
