GRS – cardiovascular drug (Phase I clinical trial), patented small molecule, first-in-class antithrombotic drug – a soluble guanylyl cyclase stimulator.
- prevents atherothrombosis simultaneously at 3 levels: reversibly inhibits platelet aggregation, normalizes blood pressure and prevents atherosclerosis (unlike the known antithrombotic drugs);
- high therapeutic range (over 10 times better than that of any competitors);
- independence from liver metabolism - low risk of drug interaction and activity fluctuation (inherent in competitors).
Due to this, GRS is a potential blockbuster drug for preventing and treating thrombosis and reducing the risk of life-threatening conditions (acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction, stroke) in patients with cardiovascular diseases and/or invasive surgery (such as stenting, implantation, endoprosthesis).
Market: over $27 B/year (2018) with high growth rate.
