About Rejuveinix (RJX)
RJX is an intravenous (IV) formulation of known physiologically compatible compounds that is being developed for more effective supportive therapy of patients with sepsis, including COVID-19 patients with viral sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). RJX is a proprietary composition of naturally occurring antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents which, in combination, provide potent and immediate tissue protection. The components of RJX exhibited promising activity in clinical studies involving ARDS patients and/or non-clinical studies in animal models of ARDS. The published data from these clinical and non-clinical studies provided the medical-scientific rationale for Reven’s clinical development strategy for RJX and a clinical study in COVID-19 patients. The clinical tolerability of RJX was confirmed in a recently completed double blind, placebo-controlled Phase 1 dose-escalation study in healthy volunteers (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03680105).
