About Saghmos Therapeutics

Saghmos is developing ST-62516 (trimetazidine), a cardiorenal metabolic modulator to reduce the risk of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Major Adverse Cardiac and Kidney Events (MACKE) after contrast procedures such as PCI. Saghmos’ IND for ST-62516 was cleared by the FDA in 2023. Over one million PCI procedures are performed annually in the US in patients with unstable angina (heart attack). About half of these patients have comorbidities which impact the safety of PCI. This is a major unmet medical need with no FDA-approved drugs available to prevent or treat AKI and MACKE.

Saghmos Therapeutics has an issued US patent (Patent number 11,123,345) for the prevention and treatment of acute kidney injury after contrast procedures and has received Notice of Allowance for a second US patent.
