Our Research

Nephrology

Our lead nephrology product, Rayaldee®, is approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in patients with stage 3-4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) with vitamin D insufficiency. A phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Rayaldee® to treat SHPT is currently underway in patients with stage 5 CKD who require regular hemodialysis.

Urology

Selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) are a class of androgen receptor ligands exhibiting modified anabolic and androgenic effects. We believe OPK88004 holds considerable promise for a variety of clinical indications, such as frailty and functional limitations associated with aging and chronic illnesses, cancer and osteoporosis.

hGH-CTP

Our human growth hormone (hGH) therapy utilizes proprietary carboxyl-terminal peptide (CTP) technology to extend the therapeutic life of hGH, requiring once weekly injections as opposed to daily injections using current treatments. hGH-CTP is currently being evaluated in a phase 3 clinical trial as a treatment for children with growth hormone deficiency (GHD), and is partnered with the Pfizer Corporation.

OPK88003 (Oxyntomodulin Analog)

The naturally occurring peptide oxyntomodulin is a dual agonist, that binds to both GLP-1 and glucagon receptors, regulating metabolic function, including blood-glucose, and suppressing appetite. OPK88003, an oxyntomodulin analog, is being developed for the treatment of obesity and diabetes.
