2021: Treatment for Arterial Stiffness Related Diseases


Arterial stiffness is an underlying mechanism for cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and renal disorders, such as, for example, high blood pressure, dementia, or chronic kidney diseases. There are currently no drugs or treatments to reverse, decrease, or treat arterial stiffness.

A composition has been discovered for use in treating or preventing an arterial stiffness-related disorder that is comprised of human recombinant thioredoxin (rhTrx), derivatives thereof, and peptide fragments.
