TSX Exchange Symbol: RVX
Resverlogix’s oral small molecule therapy for the treatment of atherosclerosis is currently being studied in two parallel Phase 2 clinical trials. The first trial focuses on stable coronary artery disease patients, while the second trial examines patients with unstable acute coronary syndrome and includes the use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). Both of these studies are chaired by Dr.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the US and other developed nations costing the American health care system an estimated
Apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA-I), the main component of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), represents the body’s natural defense system against atherosclerosis by mediating reverse cholesterol transport, i.e. transport of peripheral cholesterol including that within the atherosclerotic plaques of the vessel wall to the liver for processing. In multiple human and animal studies over-expression or repeated infusion of ApoA-I inhibits progression and induces regression of atherosclerosis in animals and humans. Developing small molecules that increase ApoA-I would satisfy a vast unmet medical need.
