About CAT-2003

CAT-2003 is a new chemical entity in Phase 2 clinical development for the treatment of severe hypertriglyceridemias. CAT-2003 leverages Catabasis’ proprietary SMART Linker technology to chemically conjugate two known lipid modulators, enabling selective intracellular delivery and synergistic activity. In animal models of severe hypertriglyceridemia, dose-dependent reductions in both fasting and post-prandial plasma triglycerides were observed with CAT-2003. In animal models of dyslipidemia, CAT-2003 also reduced LDL cholesterol. CAT-2003 currently is being studied in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia.
