heart failure, CLP1001. We believe CLP1001 has the potential to address a significant need in the cardiovascular market for safe and effective management of electrolyte and fluid levels in patients with CHF."

About CLP1001 in Heart Failure

Sorbent's lead product, CLP1001, is a polymer that has been shown to remove potassium, sodium and fluid with good tolerability in over 100 patients and healthy volunteers. The addition of CLP1001 to the treatment regimen in heart failure patients may address fluid overload and the risk of hyperkalemia related to the use of multiple RAAS (Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System) blockers.

About Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure is a serious and life-threatening condition that  develops when the heart loses its ability to pump blood efficiently, allowing fluid to accumulate in the lungs, abdominal organs (especially the liver) and peripheral tissues. According to the American Heart Association, approximately 5.7 million people in the U.S. are living with heart failure, a condition that accounts for 1.1 million hospitalizations each year. Heart failure is estimated to cost the U.S. healthcare system over $37 billion annually.
