About Tricida

Tricida, Inc. is a pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of TRC101, a non-absorbed, orally-administered polymer designed to treat metabolic acidosis in patients with CKD. Metabolic acidosis is a condition commonly caused by CKD that is believed to accelerate the progression of kidney deterioration. Tricida has successfully completed a pivotal Phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of its product candidate, TRC101, in CKD patients with metabolic acidosis. The results of this Phase 3 trial, along with results from a successful double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 1/2 trial and an ongoing safety extension trial, TRCA-301E, are intended to serve as the basis for the submission of an NDA for TRC101 under the FDA’s Accelerated Approval Program.
