Pathologies Derived from Fat Accumulation

Increased ectopic fat accumulation:

Fatty liver and NASH

  • Liver fat accumulation, fibrosis and inflammation leading to cirrhosis.
  • Silent disease, low awareness and poor diagnosis.
  • Co-morbidities obesity, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and hypertension.
Cellulite - Subcutaneous fat


  • Undesirable fat deposits in subcutaneous adipocyte.
  • Socially subterfuge disease affecting +80% pot-puberal females.
  • Scarce science-based innovation in the last decade.

Endolipid proposed strategy:

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)

Mimicking SHBG, an innovative new strategy to reduce ectopic fat accumulation.


Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin

  • Plasma glycoprotein
  • Produced by the liver and secreted Into the blood.
  • Binds sex steroids.
  • Low plasma SHBG levels related to subjects with obesity, fatty liver, type 2 diabetes and PCOS.
