Tricida, Inc., is a late-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of its lead product candidate, TRC101, a non-absorbed, orally-administered polymer drug designed to treat metabolic acidosis in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Metabolic acidosis is a condition commonly caused by CKD that is believed to accelerate the progression of kidney deterioration. Metabolic acidosis has been associated with increased muscle wasting, loss of bone density and increased mortality.
Tricida has successfully completed a pivotal Phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of TRC101 in CKD patients with metabolic acidosis (TRCA-301) that evaluated the safety, tolerability and efficacy of TRC101 in subjects with CKD and metabolic acidosis. The results of the TRCA301 trial along with results from a successful double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 1/2 trial and an ongoing safety extension trial, TRCA-301E, are intended to serve as the basis for the submission of a U.S. New Drug Application (NDA) for TRC101 under the Accelerated Approval Program of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Tricida was founded in August of 2013 by a seasoned management team that has extensive experience in the development and commercialization of therapeutics, with substantial expertise in developing polymers for the treatment of kidney-related diseases.
