MissionIRNewsBreaks – 180 Life Sciences Corp. Continues to Broaden Global IP Portfolio, Expand Internal Pipeline

KBL Merger Corp. (NASDAQ: KBLM) (KBL Merger Corp. Rights NASDAQ: KBLMR) (KBL Merger Corp. Warrant NASDAQ: KBLMW), a Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (SPAC) that previously entered a definitive agreement to acquire 180 Life Sciences, a clinical-stage biotechnology company, on Tuesday announced continued expansion of 180 Life Sciences’ robust intellectual property (“IP”) portfolio. According to the update, 180 Life Sciences is an applicant and licensee of a broad and growing patent portfolio for three major drug platforms in the areas of inflammation, fibrosis and pain. The portfolio covers 14 patent families with 42 patents issued and 32 pending in several important jurisdictions, including the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan and China. Of the many recent filings and grants in the company’s extensive portfolio, the EU Patent and Trademark Office in June 2020 granted patent number 2547363 “Methods of Prevention or Treatment of Triggered Inflammatory Reactions Using TNF Alpha Antagonist.” “The issuance of our European patents significantly strengthens the IP portfolio governing our lead program,” Dr. James Woody, CEO of 180 Life Sciences, said in the news release. “We are committed to broadening our global patent estate as we continue to expand our internal pipeline and increase patient access to innovative therapies. Having this most recent patent awarded in the EU is important as it provides validation in the 12 largest countries in the EU, including the UK, and provides the platform to be able to expand clinical trials, commercialization and partnering efforts throughout Europe. We look forward to achieving additional milestones by the end of 2020.”
