About CalciMedica
CalciMedica is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel CRAC channel inhibition therapies for inflammatory and immunologic diseases. CalciMedica's proprietary technology targets the inhibition of CRAC channels to modulate the immune response and protect against tissue cell injury, with the potential to provide therapeutic benefits in life-threatening inflammatory and immunologic diseases for which there are currently no approved therapies. CalciMedica's lead product candidate Auxora™, a proprietary, intravenous-formulated CRAC channel inhibitor, has demonstrated positive and consistent clinical results in multiple completed efficacy clinical trials. CalciMedica is currently conducting a Phase 2b trial (called CARPO – NCT04681066) for AP with SIRS, with topline data expected in the second quarter of 2024, as well as supporting the ongoing Phase 1/2 AIPT study (called CRSPA – NCT04195347), with data expected in 2025. CalciMedica plans to initiate patient enrollment in its Phase 2 study (called KOURAGE – NCT06374797) in AKI with associated AHRF in the second quarter of 2024 with data expected in 2025. CalciMedica was founded by scientists from Torrey Pines Therapeutics and the Harvard CBR Institute for Biomedical Research, and is headquartered in La Jolla, CA. For more information, please visit
