Lipigon announces selection of candidate drug for treatment of elevated blood lipids

Lipigon Pharmaceuticals AB (”Lipigon”), develops novel treatments for patients with lipid-related diseases. The candidate drug (CD) Lipisense is a first-in-class treatment and has shown unique efficacy in experimental disease models. The project now enters pre-clinical safety development.

CEO Stefan K Nilsson comments:

"Choosing a candidate drug in our front runner project Lipisense is a major step for Lipigon. The unique mechanism of action opens the possibility for an attractive clinical development path where we can address both smaller indications, which do not require extensive clinical studies, and larger indications, which are more suitable for big pharma development. We are looking forward to continuing the preclinical safety development of Lipisense.”
