Pioneering New Therapies for Progressive Kidney Disease
We are XORTX Therapeutics, a biotechnology company dedicated to developing innovative therapies to improve the quality of life of patients with progressive kidney disease. Our programs are designed to manage aberrant purine metabolism and reduce high uric acid and slow progression of kidney disease.
We have three programs, two of these programs are in clinical development and one is at an early stage of development, each is intended to treat rare and progressive kidney disease modulated by aberrant purine and uric acid metabolism.
