Welcome to Virobay, developers of protease inhibitors

We are a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company utilizing our cysteine cathepsin platform for the development and commercialization of novel drugs. We believe cysteine cathepsins are critically important enzymes in the biology of many diseases. By inhibiting these enzymes, we believe we can develop safer and more effective therapies for these diseases.

Our current programs are focused on addressing significant unmet medical needs for the treatment of neuropathic pain, autoimmune diseases and fibrosis.
