About Synvista Therapeutics

Synvista Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company developing clinical diagnostic laboratory tests and drugs to diagnose, treat and prevent cardiovascular disease in people with diabetes. The Company has developed a protein-based clinical laboratory test to identify patients with Hp2-2 diabetes. Tests which identify patients with Hp2-2 diabetes may be useful in identifying diabetic patients at high risk for cardiovascular complications. These patients may benefit from a particular formulation of vitamin E. The Company is also developing a kit to measure CML (carboxy-methyllysine), another potential cardiovascular risk marker.

Synvista Therapeutics is developing oral antioxidant drugs to treat the HDL dysfunction seen in Hp2-2 diabetes, a disease affecting almost 7 million patients in the United States. The Company is also developing alagebrium, a proposed breaker of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) for the treatment of systolic and diastolic heart failure.
