Rhythm Pharmaceuticals

Rhythm is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to transforming the treatment paradigm for people living with rare genetic diseases of obesity (RGDO). Early-onset severe obesity may result from genetic variants within the melanocortin-4 receptor pathway, a key hypothalamic pathway that regulates hunger, caloric intake, and energy expenditure, consequently affecting body weight.

Rhythm is advancing a broad clinical development program across RGDO, including Bardet-Biedl syndrome, for the treatment of hunger and obesity due to genetic deficiencies associated with the MC4R pathway.
