ZS Pharma is a biopharmaceutical company committed to the development and commercialization of highly selective, non-systemically absorbed therapeutics to treat renal, cardiovascular, liver and metabolic diseases. Our initial focus is on the development of sodium zirconium cyclosilicate (ZS-9), a highly selective inorganic cation exchanger designed to entrap excess potassium throughout the gastrointestinal tract. ZS-9 is being developed for the treatment of hyperkalemia, a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by abnormally high levels of potassium in the blood. ZS-9 has successfully completed three pivotal prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. On the basis of these studies, we plan to submit for approval of ZS-9 for the treatment of hyperkalemia with the US FDA and European Medicines Agency (EMEA) in the first half of 2015.
