About Us

Treating, improving, and extending patients’ lives.

Our Vision

We are dedicated to treating, improving and extending patients’ lives by developing breakthrough products to prevent disease progression, improve outcomes and protect against organ damage in cardiorenal diseases.

Renibus’ first-in-class lead program, RBT-1 (SnPP / FeS), is a potent inducer of Nrf2, IL-10, and ferritin. RBT-1 is currently in Phase 2 development in cardiac surgery and will soon enter a Phase 3 registration study for its lead indication to reduce the risk of postoperative complications following cardiothoracic surgery.

RBT-2 (tetrahydrocurmin), is an antioxidant and anti-fibrotic drug that has been shown to reduce the risk of CKD progression in preclinical models.

RBT-3 (FeS), a novel, low molecular weight iron nanoparticle, is one component of RBT-1 and is targeted at reducing the risk of cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity and will be in clinical development in 2023.

RBT-9 (SnPP), a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, is in early-stage development for the progression of NASH.
