LSALT Peptide (Metablok), is the Company’s lead drug candidate targeting inflammation in the lungs and kidneys.
About LSALT Peptide

The pandemic accelerated the company’s drug development plans and has shortened the path toward drug approval and commercialization. Beyond treating inflammation in COVID-19 patients, Arch expects in future that LSALT Peptide will be developed to target organ inflammation in other applications such as cardiac surgery associated kidney injury (AKI).

  • LSALT Peptide is the first novel therapeutic to join the ongoing Canadian Treatments for COVID-19 (CATCO) Phase III trial
  • In 2020 and 2021, Arch completed a Phase II Trial to investigate LSALT Peptide’s efficacy in the prevention of multiple organ injuries in patients with COVID-19 with patient dosing in the United States, Canada and Turkey.
  • Arch scientists’ 2019 publication in the journal Cell, and subsequent research and development has identified the enzyme dipeptidase-1 (DPEP1) as a major neutrophil (white blood cell) adhesion receptor in the lungs, kidneys and liver. The same, ongoing work also established DPEP1 to be the target of LSALT Peptide, the Company’s lead drug candidate targeting inflammation in the lungs and kidneys.
An experienced group of scientists working together to develop the Arch science platforms.
Science and Research Teams
  • Current work on LSALT Peptide is directed by Arch’s larger Treatments for Inflammation Team, led by Dr. Daniel Muruve Ph. D. (Arch Biopartners CSO), Dr. Justin Macdonald Ph. D., Dr. Paul Beck and Dr. Arthur Lau Ph. D (Arch Biopartners Project Director), who are primarily based at the University of Calgary.
  • The DPEP1 Inflammation Pathway and LSALT Peptide (Metablok) were discovered by the Metablok team – Dr. Stephen Robbins Ph. D., Dr. Donna Senger Ph. D., Jennifer Rahn B Sc., M Sc. and their colleague Dr. Paul Kubes at the University of Calgary.

The Arch science team also includes:
