Retrotope has created a new category of drug platform to preserve and restore mitochondrial health in degenerative diseases. The unique mechanism of Retrotope’s platform prevents cellular damage and recovers cellular function damaged by lipid peroxidation due to oxidative stress. Retrotope’s first product candidate, RT001, is being clinically tested in Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), a high value untreated fatal orphan disease. Retrotope’s transformational platform technology of stabilized lipid drugs has the potential to treat a wide variety of other mitochondrial myopathies, but also show promise for diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, diabetic retinopathy, and others.
