Treating the Underlying Causes of Age-Related Disease
Underdog Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is pursuing a mission to treat the underlying causes of age-related disease. The company develops simple and direct interventions targeting toxic forms of cholesterol, using rationally designed molecules, to provide the first true disease-modifying treatments for age-related diseases such as atherosclerosis, hypercholesterolemia, heart failure, and macular degeneration.
Its 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.
