Arête Discoveries is a biopharmaceutical discovery firm formed to develop treatments to stop the progression of autoimmune diseases. Our research focuses on the innate immune system and the epigenetic impact on tissues throughout the human body.
The first target of Arête's research is neurodegeneration, specifically Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). ALS, also commonly called "Lou Gehrig’s disease", is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, causing voluntary muscle paralysis (moving, eating, breathing). ALS is always fatal, most die within 3 – 5 years of diagnosis. There is NO effective treatment to stop progression or cure the disease. Current treatments lessen symptoms or extend life slightly. Despite the $250,000,000 raised by the “ice bucket challenge”, no significant treatment has resulted.
What if science missed a key piece of evidence?
What if a fresh perspective was brought to the autoimmune space that was not encumbered by any preconceived understandings, or centuries old medical dogma?
That "what if" is now.
Arête Discoveries has taken an entirely novel approach to both understanding autoimmune disease, and uncovering heretofore unknown biological interactions. Our discoveries of mutations at the stem cell RNA level, combined with cutting edge anatomical discoveries and understandings, have allowed us to see further, faster than any company or group of researchers has done before.
Arête Discoveries is currently seeking support from family foundations, private individuals, as well as non-diluting collaboration with forward thinking pharmaceutical companies and bio-pharma discovery firms.
