Bristol-Myers Squibb Company

Drug Names(s): KB-141

Description: KB-141 is a TR beta agonist. Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) regulate both body weight and cholesterol levels. However, thyroid hormones also have deleterious effects, particularly on the heart. The TR beta subtype is involved in cholesterol lowering and possibly elevating metabolic rate, whereas TR alpha appears to be more important for control of heart rate (HR).

Deal Structure: In fall 1997, Karo Bio and Bristol-Myers Squibb initiated a drug discovery collaboration to develop novel treatments for obesity and metabolic syndromes.

In April 2004, Bristol-Myers Squibb returned project rights to Karo Bio.

Partners: Karo Bio
