Advancing peptides for the treatment of rare endocrine and metabolic disorders
We are building on our team's established expertise in therapeutic peptides to deliver life-changing treatments to patients suffering from rare endocrine and metabolic diseases.
Our lead clinical candidate is a therapeutic peptide in development as a potential treatment for hypoparathyroidism, a rare endocrine disorder.

AZP-3404 is a first-in-class therapeutic peptide that may restore fat and glucose metabolism in the body.
We are testing a series of novel, highly potent, small peptide antagonists of the growth hormone (GH) receptor to select a lead development candidate for treatment of acromegaly.
