Reinforcing the Molecules of Life to Combat Degenerative Diseases
Human cells are continuously damaged by oxidative stress that is driven by lipid peroxidation (LPO). The resulting cellular degeneration contributes to a wide array of devasting degenerative diseases.

Retrotope is developing a pipeline of proprietary therapeutics designed to treat degenerative disease by down-regulating LPO in order to protect against cellular degeneration.
OUR
MISSION

At Retrotope, we are pioneering the development of first-in-class therapies for devastating degenerative diseases - ranging from orphan neurodegenerative indications to large market degenerative conditions - for which there are few to no treatment options.

We are leveraging our proprietary drug discovery platform technology, along with our dedicated team of scientific leaders and industry veterans, to create novel, disease-modifying therapies designed to combat the oxidative stress and cellular degeneration that arise from lipid peroxidation.
