NEXVAS™ Technology: The primary focus for Resverlogix is the development of new technology designed to control cholesterol related diseases such as atherosclerosis (the buildup of plaque in the arteries). Existing drugs control the level of LDL ("bad cholesterol") in the body and thus slow atherosclerosis. Resverlogix's NEXVAS™ program is developing proprietary technology that stimulates the body to produce ApoA1 protein, the primary component of HDL, which results in increased levels of HDL ("good cholesterol"). ApoA1/HDL has been proven to not just arrest but reverse atherosclerosis by reducing existing cholesterol deposits. Activating the body to enhance ApoA1 levels is the simplest physiological or natural approach to regulating HDL.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in industrialized countries. The drugs that are currently used to control cholesterol can only slow the progress of atherosclerosis, and yet they are the biggest selling drugs in the world with a combined market of some U.S. $30 billion annually. Resverlogix's ApoA1 technology has the potential to capture and expand much of this market.
