The University of Sheffield Key Developments

Mironid Ltd and the University of Sheffield Announce Collaboration on Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease Drug Discovery

Mironid Ltd. and the University of Sheffield announced that they have signed a collaboration agreement to identify and develop new molecules for the treatment of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD). The partnership will focus on advancing Mironid’s proprietary LoAc molecules towards clinical development, with the aim of producing new therapies that can improve the health of ADPKD patients. ADPKD is a devastating, life-threatening and currently incurable genetic disorder in which kidney cysts progressively form throughout life. Cyst formation is driven by excessive generation of the cell signalling molecule, cyclic AMP and causes a wide range of health problems including abdominal pain, high blood pressure and urinary tract infections, eventually leading to kidney failure. ADPKD affects around 12.5 million people worldwide, with around 50% requiring treatment for kidney failure by the age of 60. Mironid’s unique LoAc therapeutic approach, based upon the pioneering work of Professor Miles Houslay, one of the founders of Mironid, selectively activates long form phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) enzymes to break down the disease-elevated cyclic AMP levels that drive cyst formation in ADPKD. This approach has been shown to suppress and reverse cyst formation in ADPKD patient-derived kidney cells in Professor Albert Ong’s laboratory in the Department of Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease at the University of Sheffield.
