Sulfateq BV is an innovative biotechnology research company that is developing breakthrough compounds for the prevention of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). 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.
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.
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.
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.
