We are a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing new drugs for cardiovascular diseases.
Founded by cardiologists and backed by renowned Los Angeles hospital Cedars-Sinai, our aim is to make significant advances in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases by addressing mechanisms of inflammation that drive pathogenesis. This has been a core area of research of our founding scientists for 30 years.
We develop biologic therapies for patients with significant unmet medical need. Our pipeline focuses on treating atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, inflammation, and cardiometabolic dysfunction in patients with psoriasis. We also focus on therapies for patients at risk of cardiovascular complications from lipoprotein(a). Neither condition has an approved therapy.
Our committed team of scientists and drug developers bring decades of therapeutics development experience and a track-record of success to the Company.
