  • ZyVersa is developing Inflammasome ASC Inhibitor IC 100, which is designed to inhibit formation of multiple types of inflammasomes, including NLRP3, and their associated ASC specks to attenuate initiation and perpetuation of damaging inflammation associated with obesity and numerous other conditions.

WESTON, Fla., Feb. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZyVersa Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZVSA, or “ZyVersa”), a clinical stage specialty biopharmaceutical company developing first-in-class drugs for the treatment of inflammatory and renal diseases with high unmet medical needs, announces that on February 26, 2024, the company generated approximately $2.7 Million from existing investors’ exercise of previously issued warrants. This was following excitement around news issued by NodThera on February 19, 2024, that their NLRP3 inflammasome inhibitors have potential to treat obesity with weight loss efficacy similar to the GLP-1 receptor agonist, Wegovy, but with added cardiovascular benefits. This news became viral among financial reporters, driving high volume trading and increased stock prices for companies developing inflammasome inhibitors, including ZyVersa.

About Inflammasome ASC Inhibitor IC 100

IC 100 is a novel humanized IgG4 monoclonal antibody that inhibits the inflammasome adaptor protein ASC. IC 100 was designed to attenuate both initiation and perpetuation of the inflammatory response. It does so by binding to a specific region of the ASC component of multiple types of inflammasomes, including NLRP1, NLRP3, and AIM2, to address inflammatory diseases in which multiple inflammasome pathways are activated. Intracellularly, IC 100 binds to ASC monomers, inhibiting inflammasome formation, thereby blocking activation of IL-1β early in the inflammatory cascade. IC 100 also binds to ASC in ASC Specks, both intracellularly and extracellularly, further blocking activation of IL-1β and the spread and perpetuation of the inflammatory response that is pathogenic in inflammatory diseases. Because active cytokines amplify adaptive immunity through various mechanisms, IC 100, by attenuating cytokine activation, also attenuates the adaptive immune response.
