Oxidien Pharmaceuticals, LLC, spun out the hyperoxaluria research division from Captozyme Inc., a microbiome contract development and manufacturing organization in November of last year. Having raised a total of $5.7 million to support the development of novel oxalate-reducing enzymes, Oxidien has established a solid foundation of data enabling a well-informed clinical program. Helena Cowley, former CEO of Captozyme, brings deep understanding for the unmet need in hyperoxaluria from nearly a decade of active participation in this area of disease.
