WELCOME TO ARTARA

We are a team of veteran rare disease specialists, passionate about bringing therapies to patients who have no current treatment options.
We work with academic and industry partners around the world to find and develop breakthrough therapies that will improve the well-being of people with rare, neglected, and serious diseases.

PATIENTS AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO

Biotech at its best is a profession of compassion. We are driven by the question, “how will this help the patients we serve?"

EXCELLENCE AND EFFICIENCY

We balance high standards and maximum efficiency to get treatments to patients faster.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

We look externally for innovative therapies. We search for assets where our expertise and network can optimize programs that are stalled or need a drug development partner.

BE A FORCE FOR GOOD

We define ourselves through focus, humility and our genuine passion to help patients. We believe that collectively we can do good in the world – for our patients, our employees and beyond.

IV CHOLINE CHLORIDE

INTESTINAL FAILURE ASSOCIATED LIVER DISEASE (IFALD)

  • Our lead program is IV Choline Chloride, a first-in-class treatment for the orphan disease Intestinal Failure Associated Liver Disease (IFALD)
  • IFALD is a potentially fatal liver disease that afflicts people who survive on parenteral nutrition (PN). Through PN, patients with a missing or non-functioning gastrointestinal tract receive most or all the nutrition needed to support life.
  • Up to 65% of all PN patients develop IFALD because of deficiencies and imbalances in PN ingredients, and the abnormal way those PN nutrients are used by the body.
  • Many patients with IFALD eventually need a dual liver/small intestine transplant to survive, one of the costliest and risky surgical procedures performed.
  • IV Choline Chloride reversed signs of IFALD in two promising efficacy studies.
