Our mission is to bring novel treatment options to rare kidney diseases and to partner closely with the medical and patient communities we serve. The first step in this journey is to protect the kidney from the deleterious effects of inappropriately high oxalate concentrations.
A devastating ultra-orphan genetic disease that is usually diagnosed when patients are quite young
It results in the over production and over accumulation of oxalate, causing progressive kidney damage and deposition of calcium-oxalate crystals throughout the body.
Utilizing special features as an activated bimodal enteric biotherapy, Oxabact could provide the first orally derived solution to tackle primary hyperoxaluria by promoting active secretion of oxalate from plasma into the gut and degrading it there. This enteric elimination in turn reduces the high oxalate burden on the kidneys.
OxThera is built on a highly-experienced and committed team and strong network in oxaluria research, rare disease drug development and anaerobic bacterial manufacturing. We are supported by an experienced and dedicated group of life science investors.
