About KalVista Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a pharmaceuticals company focused on the
discovery, development, and commercialization of small molecule protease
inhibitors for diseases with significant unmet need. The initial focus
is on inhibitors of plasma kallikrein, which is an important component
of the body’s inflammatory response and which, in excess, can lead to
increased vascular permeability, edema and inflammation. KalVista has
developed a proprietary portfolio of novel, small molecule plasma
kallikrein inhibitors initially targeting hereditary angioedema (HAE)
and diabetic macular edema (DME). The Company has created a structurally
diverse portfolio of oral plasma kallikrein inhibitors from which it
plans to select multiple drug candidates to advance into clinical trials
for HAE. KalVista’s most advanced program, an intravitreally
administered plasma kallikrein inhibitor known as KVD001, has
successfully completed its first-in-human study in patients with DME and
is being prepared for Phase 2 studies in 2017.
