The University of Sheffield Key Developments

Fusion IP plc and the University of Sheffield Form New Company, PH Therapeutics Ltd

Fusion IP plc announced a new portfolio company, PH Therapeutics Ltd, has been formed under its exclusive agreement with the University of Sheffield. PH Therapeutics, which is founded on the research of Dr. Allan Lawrie from the Department of Cardiovascular Science, aims to develop biologic treatments for the rare disease Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). PAH is caused by the thickening of the walls in arteries that take blood from the heart to the lungs, making it harder for blood to flow through them resulting in high blood pressure. The increase in pressure puts a strain on the heart that can lead to difficulty in breathing and heart failure. Current therapies only attempt to alleviate the symptoms of this disease through relaxing the vessels. PH Therapeutics is developing therapies that specifically target molecules thought to be responsible for cell wall thickening. This may lead to control, and importantly reversal of the disease. PAH affects around 2 in 10,000 people in the European Union and is classed as an orphan disease. In accordance with its agreement with the University of Sheffield, Fusion will start with a 60% shareholding in PH Therapeutics Ltd.
