Company Description (as filed with the SEC)
La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics for chronic organ failure and cancer. Our drug development efforts are focused on two product candidates: GCS-100 and LJPC-501. GCS-100 targets the galectin-3 protein, which, when overproduced by the human body, has been associated with chronic organ failure and cancer. In January 2013, we initiated a Phase 1/2 clinical trial with GCS-100 for the treatment of chronic kidney disease ("CKD"). LJPC-501 is a peptide agonist of the renin-angiotensin system, which is designed to help restore kidney function in patients with hepatorenal syndrome ("HRS"). We plan to file an Investigational New Drug Application ("IND") with the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for LJPC-501 in the third quarter of 2013 and initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial in HRS by the end of 2013. ...
