Treating the Underlying Causes of Age-Related Disease

Underdog develops easy-to-use drugs that prevent common age-related conditions such as atherosclerosis, heart-attack and stroke by addressing the root cause - a build-up of arterial plaque.

The company's technology removes arterial plaque by clearing the non-degradable cholesterol that accumulates within cells in the arterial walls.

Underdog's long-term goal is to deliver a simple and affordable preventive therapy for the world.

Our products are based on novel derivatives of a well-known, safe compound, and a new way of looking at cardiovascular disease created through a SENS Research Foundation program.
