Angion is developing ANG-3777 to meet the high unmet medical need of acute kidney injury resulting from kidney transplantation and from cardiac surgery. We are currently conducting Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials with improvement in kidney function as an endpoint.  Angion’s robust pipeline includes ANG-3070, an oral small molecule in development as a potential treatment for fibrosis and other severe organ damage.  Learn more at www.angion.com
