La Jolla's low blood pressure treatment clears key study

Feb 27 (Reuters) - La Jolla Pharmaceutical Co said its lead experimental drug to treat low blood pressure met the main goal of a late-stage study on patients with distributive shock who have not adequately responded to existing treatments.

Distributive shock is a state in which the heart is pumping well enough, but the blood is not distributed properly to the vital organs leading to severe hypotention.

The drug, LJPC-501, is La Jolla’s formulation of a natural peptide that regulates blood pressure. (Reporting by Natalie Grover in Bengaluru; Editing by Savio D‘Souza)
