“We are pleased to have the opportunity to discuss the unique mechanism of action of Cholesterol Efflux Mediator™ VAR 200 and its potential role in the treatment of kidney disease at the H.C. Wainwright 2nd Annual Kidney Conference,” stated Mr. Glover. “Around 36 million people in the US have chronic kidney disease which progresses over time leading to the need for dialysis and kidney transplant, yet treatment options are limited. According to the CDC, in 2020 nearly 558,000 people were on dialysis and nearly 250,000 were living with a kidney transplant. We commend H.C. Wainwright for hosting this conference to address new kidney drugs in development to help address this significant unmet medical need.”

About Cholesterol Efflux MediatorTM VAR 200
Cholesterol Efflux MediatorTM VAR 200 (2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin, 2HPβCD) is a phase 2a-ready drug in development to ameliorate renal lipid accumulation that damages the kidneys’ filtration system, leading to kidney disease progression. VAR 200 passively and actively removes excess lipids from the kidney.
Preclinical studies with VAR 200 in animal models of FSGS, Alport syndrome, and diabetic kidney disease demonstrate that removal of excess cholesterol and lipids from kidney podocytes protects against structural damage and reduces excretion of protein in the urine (proteinuria).
The lead indication for VAR 200 is orphan kidney disease focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). VAR 200 has potential to treat other glomerular diseases, including orphan Alport syndrome and diabetic kidney disease.
