Description

MB07811 is the first of a novel class of product candidates discovered by Metabasis designed to lower serum cholesterol and triglycerides. MB07811, a small molecule that is administered orally, has been extensively studied preclinically and is currently undergoing clinical testing. MB07811 combines a novel thyroid hormone receptor agonist with the Company’s novel HepDirect liver targeting prodrug technology. The combination of selectivity for the beta form of the receptor, liver targeting and other structural characteristics that limit extra-hepatic activity is designed to provide significant efficacy while avoiding side effects associated with activation of thyroid hormone receptors outside the liver.

PharmacodynamicsMB07811's TR beta receptor selectivity and liver targeting could harness the efficacy of the approach, while avoiding extra-hepatic activation of TR alpha and TR beta receptors that may lead to therapy limiting side effects. These benefits may include: reduction of LDL and total cholesterol, Reduced liver and serum triglycerides, reduced Lp(a) and enhanced clearance of liver fat.
Mechanism of actionStudies indicate that targeting TR agonists to the liver has the potential to lower both LDL-cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol) and both hepatic and plasma triglyceride levels.
