About Lipigon

Lipigon develops new treatments for diseases caused by disruptions in the body's handling of fats – known as lipid-related diseases. Our company's foundation is built upon over 50 years of research at Umeå University. Lipigon aims to become a world-leading player in our field and the preferred collaborative partner for big pharma.

About Lipigon

Lipigon initially focuses on advanced diseases or genetically defined patient segments where it is possible to identify treatment effects early in clinical development. This allows for studies with fewer patients, shorter timeframes, and reduced development costs, which ultimately reduces development risks. In some cases, Lipigon can potentially attain orphan drug status to further mitigate development risks and establish a foundation for market exclusivity and competitive pricing.

To market

Lipigon’s pipeline includes three active projects: the RNA drug Lipisense® targeting elevated triglycerides, an RNA drug for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome, and a small molecule program for the treatment of dyslipidemia in collaboration with HitGen (Inc).

Lipisense® – A drug with Blockbuster Potential

Lipisense® is Lipigon's most advanced project, expected to enter Phase II clinical trials in Q1 2024. Through a unique mechanism of action, Lipisense® lowers triglycerides, a type of blood lipid that stands as a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Today, at least five million patients in the seven major markets of the USA, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom suffer from significantly elevated blood lipids. Regrettably, only half of those treated with lipid-lowering drugs reach treatment goals.
