Pioneering therapies for organ failure

Atorvia is pioneering therapies for organ failure by targeting the regulated cell death pathway that causes it, starting with the kidney.  


  The first clinical indication we are pursuing is kidney failure caused by cardiac surgery.  This form of kidney failure is known as ischemia-induced Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and is one of the most common causes of complication during cardiac surgery, with anywhere between 30 and 78% of patients developing it depending on the type of surgery.  There is nothing surgeons can do to prevent it, and there is no treatment for it.   


And this is just the beginning.  An estimated 70+ million patients worldwide develop some form of AKI each year, often leaving surviving patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, End Stage Renal Disease, stroke or myocardial infarction.  There is still no effective therapy for AKI.    

We are on a mission to change that.
