Development of compounds for the prevention of Acute Kidney Injury

Sulfateq BV is an innovative biotechnology research company that is developing breakthrough compounds for the prevention of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Acute Kidney Injury is the sudden loss of kidney function and it affects more than 1.2 million people each year in the United States alone. It occurs in different situations and is particularly frequent in patients hospitalized for major surgery. Currently there is no therapy or drugs available for the protection against AKI during major surgery and we want to change this with our SUL-138 compound.

Our compounds emerged from research on hibernation and provide a new mechanism of action for cell protection, organ protection and prophylactic use and they have a huge potential to support drug development for AKI prevention. Currently our SUL compounds are in the final pre-clincal development phase. After the pre-clincal phase we will proceed with clinical trials, registration and finally market introduction. We see huge potential for the hibernation technology and its benefits for Acute Kidney Injury.

Why hibernation?
We are inspired by the principles of hibernation. During hibernation mamals protect their body against threatening conditions. Our research has proved that hibernation can also be used for protecting cells, organs an organisms. That is why we use its natural protection process against cooling and rewarming to develop therapeutic applications.
Prevention of Acute Kidney Injury
A direct application of our compounds is protecting organs and body during major surgeries. Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) can occur during various medical operations, one of which is cardiac surgery. We regard this medical need as the most direct opportunity for the application of SUL-compounds as a medical prophylactic treatment.

Investment opportunity
There is no therapy available for kidney protection, or organ protection in general, during major surgery. With our SUL-138 compound we can change this. To advance the clinical development we are seeking investors who we can offer a high-profit business model with high-potential opportunities focussing on pharmaceutical blockbuster markets.


Other applications for our compounds

The main focus of SUL-138 is the prevention of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) during cardiac surgery. But besides AKI SUL-138 also has multiple applications in other therapeutic areas such as:
