Addressing Unmet Needs For Respiratory Diseases
CTO1681 for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
CTO1681 addresses a clear unmet need in the fight against ARDS. By providing a safe means to reduce a broad range of cytokines and rebalance the immune system, our novel mechanism of action offers a new category of treatment across a spectrum of viral illnesses associated with CRS triggered by ARDS. CytoAgents’ approach is not affected by viral mutations or the development of viral resistance and thereby could provide long-lasting therapeutic benefit for current and future respiratory epidemics.
CTO1681 has completed Phase 1 clinical trials demonstrating safety in humans. CytoAgents is exploring a pre-investigational new drug application around the use of CTO1681 in conjunction with ARDS.
