New Preclinical Data to be Presented at the 13th Annual Heart Failure Society of America and the American Heart Association

Cardioxyl Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutic agents for the treatment of cardiovascular disease, today announced that the company will present preclinical data on Cardioxyl's lead program, CXL-1020, at the 13th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) and the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions. CXL-1020 is an intravenous agent under development for the treatment of Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (ADHF), and is currently being evaluated in a Phase I/IIa study in patients with stable heart failure.

Chris Kroeger, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cardioxyl Pharmaceuticals, commented, "Cardioxyl's lead candidate, CXL-1020, has a unique mechanism of action producing three key physiological effects in canine heart failure models; improved contractility, enhanced relaxation and reduced load. This unique constellation of effects suggests a highly valuable pharmacologic profile suitable for the treatment of ADHF. The Company has made significant progress in advancing CXL-1020 in the clinic, and we are excited to have the opportunity to share some of our preclinical research findings at these two prestigious scientific meetings."
