Nitrome Biosciences (Nitrome) is a privately-held biopharmaceutical company developing a platform around a newly identified class of enzymes to target Parkinson’s disease and other age-related disorders.

Nitrome Biosciences is initially targeting Parkinson’s disease and developing cures for multiple aging-dependent diseases, including other neurodegenerative diseases, Type II diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
