ST GALLEN, SWITZERLAND & UNIONDALE, N.Y.--( / ) November 09, 2020 -- Regulatory News:
Vifor Pharma and Angion Biomedica Corp. (Angion) announced the signing of a licensing agreement for the commercialization of ANG-3777, currently developed for treatment of delayed graft function (DGF) and cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI). ANG-3777 was engineered to mimic the biological activity of HGF, activating critical pathways in the body’s natural organ repair process following an acute organ injury.
Under the terms of the agreement, Vifor Pharma will receive an exclusive global license, excluding China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, for all ANG-3777 nephrology indications. Angion will receive up to USD 80 million which includes a 30 million upfront payment, a 30 million equity investment and 20 million in clinical study milestone payments. Additionally Angion is eligible to receive up to USD 260 million in market access related milestones upon approval in US and EU, further payments in the form of sales milestones, and tiered royalties on global net sales up to 40% at the high end of the royalty range.
“This agreement highlights the leadership position that Vifor Pharma has developed in the nephrology space and the fact that it has become the company of choice for organizations committed to partnering innovative nephrology focused assets“ said Stefan Schulze, Chief Executive Officer of Vifor Pharma. “Angion is an excellent partner with an outstanding expertise leading to the development of this exciting asset and other pipeline products. We look forward to working closely with Angion who will be responsible for the ongoing development program of ANG-3777 and to leveraging our commercial expertise to bring this highly promising, innovative treatment with a unique mode of action to patients suffering from DGF and CSA-AKI. These are both critical conditions, currently without any effective or approved therapies.”
“Vifor Pharma is one of the world leaders in the nephrology space and we are very excited to partner with them on the commercialization of ANG?3777 for nephrology indications,” stated Dr. Jay Venkatesan, President and CEO of Angion. “This is a major milestone for the team at Angion who has worked for many years to develop ANG-3777 as a therapy for patients with acute kidney injuries. We look forward to phase-III data in DGF towards the end of 2021 and working with Vifor Pharma to potentially bring ANG-3777 to nephrology patients worldwide.”
Addressable patients with DGF is estimated to be about 15,000 and approximately 110,000 with CSA-AKI in the US/EU5 each year.
Angion will be responsible for conducting the ongoing nephrology-focused clinical development programs. Angion and Vifor Pharma will share responsibilities for regulatory filings in the licensed territories and Vifor Pharma will be responsible for all commercialization activities related to nephrology indications in all licensed territories.
Vifor Pharma will host a conference call and webcast today, 9 November 2020 at 2:00 pm (CET), to discuss the license agreement.

Angion Biomedica Corp. is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel small molecule therapeutics to address acute organ injuries and fibrotic diseases. Angion’s lead product candidate, ANG-3777, is a small molecule designed to mimic the biological activity of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), which activates the HGF/c-Met pathway, which has a central role in tissue repair and organ recovery. ANG-3777 is currently in clinical trials investigating its impact on acute organ injury, including two forms of acute kidney injury and in acute lung injury. Angion is also developing ANG-3070, an orally-bioavailable small molecule, as a potential treatment for fibrotic diseases using a precision-medicine approach. For further information, please visit
ANG-3777 is a small molecule designed to mimic the biological activity of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), which activates the c-Met cascade of pathways involved in tissue repair and organ repair. ANG-3777 has a substantially longer half-life than HGF and Angion believes ANG-3777 has the potential to be a first-in-class therapeutic addressing acute organ injury. The ongoing clinical trials of ANG-3777 include a placebo-controlled Phase 3 registration trial in transplant-associated acute kidney injury, also known as delayed graft function, a Phase 2 proof-of-concept trial for the treatment of acute kidney injury associated with cardiac surgery involving cardiopulmonary bypass surgery, and a Phase 2 proof-of-concept trial in patients with acute lung injury associated with COVID-19 pneumonia. In 2018, Sinovant Sciences and Angion signed a development and licensing agreement for ANG-3777 in Greater China.
During cardiac surgery, the use of cardiopulmonary bypass during the procedure may cause or exacerbate kidney injury as a result of reduced blood flow, non-pulsatile circulation, rupture of red blood cells creating oxidant damage and other causes. CSA-AKI is caused by many factors, including shear stress during cardiopulmonary bypass and injuries from nephrotoxic drugs and contrast agents. In addition, an important driver of CSA-AKI is ischemia-reperfusion injury, which is similar to the injury seen in DGF. There are no approved pharmacological treatments.
Delayed graft function is a severe form of acute kidney injury resulting from ischemia-reperfusion injury following kidney transplantation. It is distinct from transplant rejection and is most commonly seen in recipients of deceased-donor kidneys. In delayed graft function, the kidney fails to adequately filter the blood and patients require dialysis within the first week after transplantation. Dialysis does not treat acute kidney injury, but instead is renal replacement therapy for impaired kidneys. Patients with delayed graft function are more likely to experience transplant failure and have a higher mortality rate.[3, 4, 5]

NEW YORK--() January 28, 2013 -- Synergy Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:SGYP), a developer of new drugs to treat gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, announced today that oral dosing of healthy volunteers has begun in a G-Star 하의실종패션 Phase I clinical trial of SP-333, a guanylate cyclase C (GC-C) agonist for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including ulcerative colitis (UC). SP-333 has exhibited potent anti-inflammatory activity in animal studies of colitis, displaying a novel mechanism-of-action that 동행복권파워볼조작 the company believes could provide a 지흥동홀덤카페 NEWway to treat UC patients 일산동홀덤대회 NEWmild-to-moderate disease.
“We‘re pleased with the results of our SP-333 single-dose-ascending trial in healthy volunteers, which was completed in late 2012, and are eager to move forward with further development of SP-333,” said Dr. Gary G-Star S. Jacob, President and CEO of Synergy Pharmaceuticals. “This second G-Star 파워사다리예측 실시간야동 “We‘reG-Star is an important step in ultimately evaluating SP-333’s 장현승기습키스 potential to treat GI inflammatory diseases such as UC.”
The 키노사다리작업 present trial, designed as a placebo-controlled, dose-escalating, multiple-dose study in 64 healthy pornhd Thevolunteers, is focused on 19곰닷컴 Thethe safety profile of SP-333. The study G-Star will take place G-Star 로또인터넷구매 in one site in the United States.
“SP-333 is our first clinical candidate for evaluating the anti-inflammatory potential of GC-C receptors to treat GI anti-inflammatory conditions such as 로또복권 UC,” said Dr. Kunwar Shailubhai, Synergy's Chief Scientific Officer. “In experimental models of vporn “SP-333in mice, we G-Star have found that treatment G-Star with SP-333 ameliorates GI inflammation, likely through inhibition of NF-kappa B signaling to suppress production 로또1등당첨지역 of pro-inflammatory cytokines.”

SP-333 is a synthetic analog of uroguanylin, a natriuretic peptide hormone normally produced in the lumen of the intestinal tract. Deficiency of uroguanylin is likely to be G-Star 현아체인지듣기 one of the primary causes for the formation of polyps, as well as debilitating and difficult-to-treat GI inflammatory disorders such as UC and Crohn's disease. Orally-administered 소녀시대쩍벌춤 SP-333 로또1등당첨금수령 binds to and activates the GC-C receptor expressed on epithelial cells lining the GI mucosa, thereby stimulating cyclic GMP in target tissues. SP-333 was shown to be highly stable against proteolysis in simulated intestinal fluid for up to 24 hours. Its stability profile has made this peptide an extremely potent GC-C agonist G-Star 멸균주사침 in studies of mice and monkeys.
