About LipidRescueTM Therapy (LRT)

ResQ Pharma’s lead product candidate is LRT, which refers to the
administration of a lipid emulsion with the intent of reducing the
life-threatening clinical manifestations of toxicity from excessive
doses of certain lipophilic drugs. It is already the opinion of the
American Heart Association and American College of Medical Toxicology
that where there is serious hemodynamic instability from local
anesthetic drugs with high lipid solubility, LRT is a reasonable
consideration for therapy, even if patient is not in cardiac arrest.
