NEFECON® is an oral, delayed release formulation of budesonide, a corticosteroid with potent glucocorticoid activity and weak mineralocorticoid activity that undergoes substantial first pass metabolism. NEFECON® was designed as a 4 mg delayed release capsule and is enteric coated so that it would remain intact until it reaches the ileum. Each capsule contains coated beads of budesonide that target mucosal B-cells present in the ileum, including the Peyer’s patches, which are responsible for the production of galactose-deficient IgA1 antibodies (Gd-IgA1) causing IgA nephropathy.

In June 2019, Everest Medicines entered into a license agreement with Calliditas, which gives Everest Medicines exclusive rights to develop and commercialize NEFECON® in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Singapore. The agreement was extended in March 2022 to include South Korea as part of Everest Medicine’s territories.

NEFECON® was approved in Macau and mainland China in Oct. and Nov. 2023, respectively. It was approved in Singapore in March 2024. NEFECON® was the first non-oncology medicine to receive Breakthrough Therapy Designation in China. In addition, South Korea’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) granted Global Innovative product on Fast Track (GIFT) designation to NEFECON® in February 2023 as the first non-oncology product included in the program, and accepted NEFECON®’s NDA for review in November 2023. The Taiwan Food and Drug Administration awarded Accelerated Approval Designation (AAD) to NEFECON® in November 2022 and accepted NEFECON®’s NDA for review in December 2023.

Renal Diseases


Zetomipzomib (KZR-616) is a novel, first-in-class, selective inhibitor of the immunoproteasome for a range of autoimmune diseases including lupus nephritis (LN). Preclinical research demonstrates that selective immunoproteasome inhibition results in a broad anti-inflammatory response in animal models of several autoimmune diseases, while avoiding immunosuppression. Data generated from Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials provide evidence that zetomipzomib exhibits a favorable safety and tolerability profile for development in severe, chronic autoimmune diseases.

Everest Medicines has entered into a collaboration and license agreement with Kezar Life Sciences to develop and commercialize zetomipzomib in Greater China, South Korea and some Southeast Asian countries. According to the agreement, Everest Medicines will join Kezar on PALIZADE, a global, placebo-controlled Phase 2b clinical trial, and have the option to localize manufacturing.

EVER001 (previously known as XNW1011) is a next-generation covalent reversible Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor in development globally for the treatment of renal diseases. BTK is an essential component of the B-cell receptor signaling pathways that regulate the survival, activation, proliferation, and differentiation of B lymphocytes. Targeting BTK with small molecule inhibitors has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment option for B-cell lymphomas and autoimmune diseases. Based in part on results from a completed phase 1 study with healthy subjects conducted by SinoMab in China, EVER001 exhibited high selectivity, excellent pharmacokinetics properties, robust target engagement and a safety profile that supports continued clinical development.

Under an exclusive licensing agreement with Sinovent Pharmaceuticals and SinoMab BioScience, Everest owns the global rights to develop, produce and commercialize EVER001 for the treatment of renal diseases. China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA)’s Center for Drug Evaluation has approved the Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a Phase 1b study of EVER001.
