Soleno Therapeutics is focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapeutics for the treatment of rare diseases. The company’s lead candidate, DCCR (Diazoxide Choline) Extended-Release tablets, a once-daily oral tablet, is being evaluated for the treatment of Prader-Willi Syndrome.
We recently completed a Phase 3 development program to support a planned FDA new drug application. Our priority is to bring the first approved treatment to patients to manage the most burdensome aspects of this devastating disorder.
Aardvark Therapeutics is dedicated to bringing novel drugs that activate innate homeostatic pathways to patients living with neurodevelopmental, metabolic and inflammatory disorders.
The lead product, ARD-101, is a first-in-class oral drug that is restricted to the gut which contributes to its safety, yet conveys systemic effects by stimulating gut peptide hormone secretion and gut-brain signaling with broad therapeutic potential. A phase 2 clinical trial in Prader-Willi Syndrome documented excellent safety and hunger control, supporting continued development.
