Advantages of Klotho Human Protein
LIVE WELL LONGER®
What if it didn’t hurt to grow old? Imagine living independently longer. Less severe dementia. Later onset of cancer. Heart and kidneys healthier longer. Klotho, a natural human protein has great potential to delay diseases of aging: loss of cognition and kidney function, diabetes and cancer. Klotho Therapeutics® (KTI) is using biotechnology to mimic the human protein.
KLOTHO HUMAN PROTEIN
Klotho is a naturally occurring, human protein discovered in 1997. The name comes from the mythological Greek goddess Klotho, one of the three Fates, responsible for spinning the thread of life. Its an appropriate name as Klotho protein is involved in many biological pathways and appears to have major effects throughout our lifespan. Klotho influences longevity, cognition and kidney function and slows the progression of diabetes and cancer.
NEW ERA IN BIOTECH
Unlike traditional biotechs, KTI is minimizing the standard risks of development to reduce the cost and time of getting to human trials. KTI is well positioned to enter human trials within 2 years focused on its first indication: to slow the progression of kidney disease, which affects up to 40 million patients per year in the US, 600,000 of whom are currently on dialysis.
