About TRC101

TRC101 is being developed as a first-in-class, orally administered, counterion-free, insoluble, non-absorbed drug for the treatment of metabolic acidosis in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

About CKD and Metabolic Acidosis

In the United States, approximately 1 in 7 adults has CKD, a progressive and often-times debilitating disease. Patients with CKD may have a reduced ability to excrete acid generated by intrinsic and dietary metabolism, especially protein, resulting in metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis results in lower blood pH and decreased blood bicarbonate levels. Chronic metabolic acidosis can lead to accelerated progression of kidney disease, an increased rate of mortality, progressive muscle breakdown and exacerbation of bone disease. In the United States, chronic metabolic acidosis affects a significant percentage of CKD patients resulting in approximately 3 million to 4 million adults with chronic metabolic acidosis. There are no FDA-approved treatments for chronic metabolic acidosis.

About Tricida

Tricida, Inc. is a privately-held, clinical stage, biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of non-absorbed therapies. Tricida’s lead investigational drug candidate, TRC101, represents a first-in-class approach to the treatment of metabolic acidosis, a common complication of CKD that can result in accelerated progression of kidney disease, an increased rate of mortality, progressive muscle breakdown and exacerbation of bone disease. In January 2016, the FDA accepted Tricida’s Investigational New Drug (IND) application for TRC101. The company has since successfully completed a Phase 1/2 double-blind, placebo-controlled study in which the safety, tolerability and efficacy of TRC101 were evaluated in subjects with chronic kidney disease and low serum bicarbonate and is currently conducting a Phase 3 study of TRC101 for the treatment of metabolic acidosis associated with CKD.
