Our focus is Portal Hypertension, an unmet medical need... at present.

Liver Cirrhosis

Liver Cirrhosis results from chronic liver diseases, such as NASH, hepatitis and Alcohol Liver Disease. About 40,000 people die of the complications of cirrhosis every year. Although liver transplantation is an option for some, a significant number of patients will die while waiting for a suitable organ. The cost of treating advanced liver disease and cirrhosis is estimated at USD 10Bn per year.

Portal Hypertension

Portal Hypertension is the precursor to the major complications of cirrhosis: ascites, upper gastrointestinal varices, hepatic encephalopathy, infection and renal failure. Portal Hypertension is a deadly and costly condition. There are no approved drugs for the treatment of Portal Hypertension.
