Epirium Bio, a biopharmaceutical company based in San Diego, is developing a small molecule platform targeting improvements in muscle strength, tissue regeneration and mitochondrial function. Although our focus is on muscle and neuromuscular diseases, we have encouraging data in non-muscle indications, highlighting the biological relevance of our unique molecular mechanism of action in attenuating the deleterious effects related to cellular stress & tissue degeneration that underlies many seemingly disparate diseases.
We have identified and established an IP-protected platform of small molecules that constitute a new class of therapeutics with the potential to stimulate muscle stem cell differentiation, improve muscle quality and function, and enhance mitochondrial function.
