Angiotensin II acetate is a Synthetic Peptide owned by La Jolla Pharmaceutical, and is involved in 9 clinical trials, of which 5 were completed, 3 are ongoing, and 1 is planned.
LJPC-501 acts by agonising angiotensin II type I receptor of the renin-angiotensin system. Angiotensin II is central to the renin-angiotensin system which raises blood pressure. In hepatorenal syndrome, renin-angiotensin system is essential in counteracting arterial hypotension. The drug candidate by agonising angiotensin II type I receptor of the renin-angiotensin system helps the kidneys to balance body fluids and electrolytes and also by causing the vasoconstriction of vessels systemically in hepatorenal syndrome.
The revenue for Angiotensin II acetate is expected to reach a total of $1.3bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process.

Angiotensin II acetate Overview
Angiotensin II acetate (Giapreza) is a naturally occurring peptide hormone derivative act as a vasoconstrictor agent. It is formulated as sterile, aqueous solution and solution concentrate for intravenous route of administration. Giapreza is indicated for the treatment of refractory hypotension in adults with septic or other distributive shock.
It is under development for hypotension in pediatrics. It was also under development for hepatorenal syndrome (HRS).
