Portola Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapeutics in the areas of thrombosis, other hematologic disorders and inflammation for patients who currently have limited or no approved treatment options.
Our two lead programs address significant unmet medical needs in the area of thrombosis, or blood clots.
- Our lead compound betrixaban is a novel oral once-daily inhibitor of Factor Xa in Phase 3 development for extended duration prophylaxis, or preventive treatment, of a form of thrombosis known as venous thromboembolism, or VTE, in acute medically ill patients. Currently, there is no anticoagulant approved for extended duration VTE prophylaxis in this population.
- Our second lead development candidate PRT4445, which has completed the first of a series of Phase 2 proof-of-concept studies, is a recombinant protein designed to reverse the anticoagulant activity in patients treated with a Factor Xa inhibitor who suffer an uncontrolled bleeding episode or undergo emergency surgery.
Our third product candidate, PRT2070, is an orally available kinase inhibitor being developed for hematologic, or blood, cancers and inflammatory disorders. Learn More
