A new spin­out wades in­to ovar­i­an ag­ing, armed with a seed round and ex­per­i­men­tal drugs from Mass Gen­er­al

There aren’t many biotechs em­pha­siz­ing women’s health, but a new spin­out is try­ing to change that.

Ovi­va Ther­a­peu­tics, a pipeline com­pa­ny of New York-based Cam­bri­an Bio­phar­ma, emerged from stealth ear­li­er this week to dive in­to the idea of ex­tend­ing women’s “healthspans,” or what it says is the part of a per­son’s life spent in gen­er­al­ly good health, with a spe­cif­ic fo­cus on ovaries. The emer­gence comes both with a seed fi­nanc­ing worth $11.5 mil­lion from Cam­bri­an, and an in-li­cens­ing agree­ment with Mass­a­chu­setts Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal for a trio of patents.
