“A new paradigm for treating metabolic diseases.”
Eternygen is a Berlin based start up founded in June 2012 focusing on research and development of innovative drugs using a network of renowned scientists and contract research organizations. The main focus of Eternygen’s development and core competences of its founders are research and development of new drugs for dietary-related metabolic diseases with dramatically increasing prevalences in the last decades. Eternygen’s research addresses the sodium coupled citrate transporter NaCT which is a key regulator of lipid metabolism involved in the pathogenesis of fatty liver, diabetes and obesity.
Company’s emphasis is the development of a safe and effective drug for treatment of these widespread diseases via targeted adjustment of underlying metabolic failure.
