Dr. Fishbane commented, "I am particularly intrigued by Zerenex's potential utility in NDD-CKD. Despite the high prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in NDD-CKD patients, the oral iron supplements that are currently available have inadequate efficacy and tolerability issues. Moreover, due to logistical constraints in NDD-CKD, intravenous iron and ESAs are not readily accessible to most patients. Consequently, I believe that iron deficiency anemia in NDD-CKD represents a substantial underserved medical need."Ron Bentsur, Chief Executive Officer of Keryx, commented, "We are very excited about the initiation of this Zerenex Phase 2 study in the additional indication of NDD-CKD, which could represent a largely untapped market opportunity for Zerenex." Mr. Bentsur added, "With an expected discretionary spend of approximately $3 million for the study, we believe that this program is a compelling value-creation opportunity for Keryx."
