Our lead compound, RP-G28 is currently under development for the treatment of lactose intolerance. RP-G28 has the potential to become the first FDA-approved drug for the treatment of lactose intolerance, a debilitating disease that affects over 1 billion people worldwide. The product stimulates the growth of lactose-metabolizing bacteria in the colon, which reduces lactose-derived gas production, and thereby mitigates the symptoms of lactose intolerance in the process.
