Elcelyx Therapeutics

Elcelyx Therapeutics is developing ultra-safe products for weight management and obesity-related metabolic disorders based on the science of nutrient sensing. Elcelyx’ first-in-class Gut Sensory Modulators are delivered directly to the gut where they intensify the body’s natural food-driven signals that trigger a sense of fullness and facilitate glucose regulation. The Elcelyx product candidates, Lovidia for weight management and NewMet for Type 2 diabetes, are composed of active dietary and pharmaceutical ingredients that have been safely used by consumers for decades. Lovidia and NewMet represent reduced-risk, near-term blockbuster opportunities in weight management and diabetes with longer-term opportunities in obesity and prediabetes.
