Calcilytix Therapeutics, a subsidiary of BridgeBio Pharma, is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on addressing hypoparathyroidism disorders. We are currently in clinical development with a novel, small molecule calcilytic agent that antagonizes the abnormal response of mutant calcium-sensing receptors found in a genetic form of hypoparathyroidism. Patients of all ages with this rare disorder called autosomal dominant hypocalcemia have significant unmet medical needs, and Calcilytix is committed to realizing this potentially transformative agent for these patients. The promise of this class of agents is being explored for other hypoparathyroidism disorders.

The company bridges remarkable advancements in genetic science with the entrepreneurial engine required to rapidly create lifesaving medicines for patients with unmet needs. Founded in 2015 by a team of industry veterans, the company has built a portfolio of 20 transformative drugs ranging from pre-clinical to late-stage development in multiple therapeutic areas, including genetic dermatology, oncology, cardiology, neurology, endocrinology, renal disease, and ophthalmology. The company’s focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aims to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston, New York, and Raleigh with small satellites in other parts of the country.
