Altos Therapeutics is a specialty pharmaceutical company devoted to identifying and developing compounds for gastrointestinal and associated disorders with high unmet medical need.

Altos will execute the product programs using a semi-virtual business model until the regulatory risk associated with clinical efficacy and safety have been substantially reduced. Altos will then partner these compounds with identified companies for final development and marketing.
