Obesity and type 2 diabetes have reached epidemic proportions. Existing drugs are not effective enough to reverse the trend. Our drug can solve this problem because it addresses the root cause of metabolic disorders.
Our drug will target mitochondria – the powerhouse of the cell. It will activate the protein that mitochondria naturally use to produce heat.
This approach has been proven to reverse obesity and type 2 diabetes in animals. We have developed a high-throughput drug discovery platform to identify compounds that selectively activate our target protein, without side effects.
For decades people have wanted a drug that burns calories like exercise does. We are realizing this dream at Equator Therapeutics.
