Longevity Technology: Equity investment in MDI Therapeutics by Juvenescence will develop novel serpin-based therapies

Longevity Technology reports on Juvenescence investment in the important work of MDI Therapeutics.

Serine proteases have been described as the “workhorses of the human body.”

Their lead program, a first-in-class orally available Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor (PAI-1) inhibitor, has demonstrated efficacy in multiple preclinical models of fibrosis and thrombosis, as well as a promising pharmacokinetic and safety profile. Juvenescence experience in bringing therapies to market, in addition to its equity investment, is seen as a strategic advantage for MDI.
