Proteins are the workhorses of human biology. Integrity of protein structures are essential to their physiobiological functions. Many genetic human diseases can be traced back to incorrectly folded (misfolded) proteins. Protein misfolding can also happen due to unchecked cellular stress and with aging.
Protein misfolding can have two consequences: 1) Loss of biological function; 2) Gain of toxicity or toxic function.
Protego Biopharma aims to correct protein misfolding in the treatment of various human diseases.
