Espero BioPharma, Inc. is focused on the development of drugs for the treatment of cardiorenal diseases. The company, a private Delaware corporation, is the result of a 2017 business combination between Espero Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Armetheon, Inc. The company's portfolio of products includes: (i) tecarfarin, a Phase III-ready oral anti-coagulant with FDA orphan drug designation for patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) and atrial fibrillation (AFib) and (ii) DURLAZA (aspirin Extended Release Capsules, 162.5 mg), an FDA-approved antiplatelet therapy.
The U.S. has a $13 billion oral anticoagulant market. ESRD patients with AFib are a distinct population within this market, and Espero's tecarfarin is a potential solution for this high-risk group with no currently FDA-approved therapies.
