Impacting countless lives by  defeating ARDS from any cause


ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) is a severe, life-threatening medical condition characterized by widespread inflammation and fluid accumulation in the lungs. Every year, this condition kills more people than breast and prostate cancer combined. With no approved pharmacotherapy and caused by pneumonia, sepsis and trauma, this is a huge unmet medical need.

Exvastat has created the first stable formulation of imatinib, Impentriā„¢, that can be delivered intravenously. This hugely extends its value as it can be used with patients unable to receive oral treatments due to coma. This aspect transforms our ability to prevent the tragic loss of human life due to ARDS.
