"The NKF Spring Meeting offers an ideal opportunity to share the favorable results from two important studies on Renazorb with the nephrology community," said Shalabh Gupta, M.D., Chief Executive Officer. "These supportive data form the foundation of what we believe will be a best-in-class product profile for Renazorb that leverages the high phosphate binding capacity of lanthanum in a smaller tablet form that is conveniently swallowed rather than having to be chewed."

The following Renazorb abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the NKF Spring Clinical Meeting:

Poster Title: "Lanthanum Dioxycarbonate Effectively Reduces Phosphate in Healthy Volunteers"
Poster # 10213
Date/Time: Thursday, April 7, from 6:00pm7:30pm Eastern Time

Poster Title: "Lanthanum Dioxycarbonate is Safe in Dogs"
Poster # 10217
Date/Time: Thursday, April 7, from 6:00pm7:30pm Eastern Time

About Renazorb (lanthanum dioxycarbonate)

Renazorb is a non-aluminum, non-calcium, phosphate binder manufactured using a patent-protected nanotechnology process. Renazorb has been shown to offer unique phosphate binding characteristics, which have the potential to treat hyperphosphatemia in chronic kidney disease patients. It also has meaningful patient adherence benefits as it requires smaller and fewer number of pills per dose than the current standard of care and is swallowed instead of chewed. Unicycive is preparing a clinical bioequivalence study performed in healthy volunteers in order to submit a 505(b)(2) new drug application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
