Brightseed’s Discovery Pipeline

Brightseed’s first discovery promotes a healthy metabolism by supporting the health of the liver. The liver is the body’s primary metabolic organ and a healthy liver helps avoid metabolic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Although there are many risk factors for developing NAFLD, the disease is closely linked to obesity, which afflicts more than 40% of the U.S. adult population. There are no approved therapeutics to treat this major health condition.
