The study drug is an oral capsule that mimics the role of a peptide hormone called Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP), which naturally occurs in the human body. The study drug is designed to reverse damage to the organs caused by scar tissue.

If this study drug proves to be a successful treatment for fibrotic damage to the organs, it could provide more treatment options for patients with kidney or heart failure. For patients with kidney failure, it could lead to a reduced need for dialysis and transplantation. For patients with severe heart failure, it could prevent the need for heart transplants.

The trial has been approved by an independent ethics committee and participants will be reimbursed for their time.
