About Rockwell Medical

Rockwell Medical is a commercial healthcare company focused on providing life-sustaining products for patients suffering from blood disorders and diseases associated with the kidney. Rockwell is the second largest supplier of acid and bicarbonate concentrates for dialysis patients in the United States. The Company is developing and commercializing a next-generation, proprietary parenteral iron technology platform, Ferric Pyrophosphate Citrate (“FPC”), which has the potential to transform treatment options for iron deficiency in multiple disease states, reduce healthcare costs and improve patients’ lives. Rockwell has two FDA-approved therapies indicated for patients undergoing hemodialysis, which are the first two products developed from the FPC platform. Rockwell is also advancing its FPC platform by developing FPC for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia in patients outside of dialysis, who are receiving medications in the home infusion setting.
