About the concerts
Concert Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing small molecule drugs it discovered through the application of its DCE platform® (platform of deuterated chemical entities). The selective incorporation of deuterium into known molecules has the potential, on a case-by-case basis, to provide better pharmacokinetic or metabolic properties, thereby improving their clinical safety, tolerability or efficacy. Concert’s lead product candidate is in late-stage development for the treatment of alopecia areata, a serious autoimmune skin disease. Concert is also evaluating a number of candidates early in the pipeline.
