Executive Summary

Arete Therapeutics launched in 2003 with a straightforward therapeutic and commercial goal: to develop a new treatment for high blood pressure that works by blocking the s-EH enzyme. Arete began enrolling patients for its first human trial in November 2007, and its oral inhibitor of s-EH proved safe. By the time the safety data were released a year later, Arete's strategy had been further refined and the company was envisioning the compound as a potential therapy for metabolic syndrome. Based on data from preclinical studies, Arete now posits that its therapy can become a treatment for type 2 diabetes.
