Privacy Policy
(Personal Data)

We, at MetaShape Pharma, take your privacy seriously. We are a pre-clinical stage pharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering and developing transformative drugs for white fat-related diseases. Our team is deeply immersed in the field of pharmacology, with a wealth of experience in medicine and PNP inhibitors. We understand the complex challenges patients face when dealing with these diseases, and we are committed to creating differentiated treatments that can help improve their lives.

With our extensive knowledge of pharmacology and our innovative approach to the treatment of high-prevalence diseases, we are exploring new pathways to create drugs with the potential to make a meaningful impact. Our team is united by a shared passion to work towards a goal that is bigger than ourselves, and we are driven to study and deliver medicines that can offer significant benefits to those living with fat-related diseases. Whether it’s obesity, liver disease, chronic inflammation, or other related conditions, our ultimate aim is to provide effective treatments that can make a difference in the lives of our patients.
