Corporate ProfileAerpio Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing first-in-class treatments for ocular disease. Aerpio’s lead product candidate, AKB-9778, a small molecule activator of the Tie-2 pathway, is being developed for the treatment of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. In contrast to marketed treatments for non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy that are administered by a physician via intraocular injection, AKB-9778 is delivered systemically by self-administered subcutaneous injection. We believe this delivery method provides an opportunity to treat patients at an earlier stage of disease, potentially reducing the likelihood of these patients developing vision-threatening complications.
