Novel therapeutics and diagnostics targeting the multi-factorial root causes of CVD


Can we cure and

even prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD)?

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the world’s leading chronic killer impacting more than one-third of the world’s population. US direct and indirect healthcare costs due to CVD are expected to grow to an estimated $1.5 trillion by 2030. Among the top 150 developing nations worldwide, CVD is the largest health risk and cost.


Dr. J.B. Tunac, President and Chairman of Arterez, has discovered the multi-factorial upstream etiology or root causes of chronic vascular disease and that those can be identified, characterized, cured and ultimately prevented. A profound discovery indeed.


The company’s first drug, Embotricin™, targets healing at the cellular level rather than targeting symptoms.  The company has also developed a biomarker panel for treatment monitoring, GlycoCardia™, that can also be used for disease identification, staging and classification. 


Embotricin™ proved to prevent and reverse arterial plaques in models and proved non-toxic up to 300x the effective dose in mice.  Rat in vitro and in vivo in process.  First in-human studies expected to begin early 2023.   

"Historical development of antibiotics targeting microorganisms led to a cure of infectious disease. An equivalent approach is to target the endothelial glycocalyx to cure CVD by an anti-embolic™ mechanism."
