Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. is a team of approximately 200 committed people working with passion to identify meaningful new medicines to advance the care of people with kidney disease. We have assembled a deep concentration of kidney care experts, including nephrologists, renal dietitians, nurses and industry veterans in nephrology. Together, we strive to raise awareness of the kidney disease epidemic, give voice to this underserved population, and help healthcare professionals to improve the care of their patients. In September 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Keryx’s first medicine, Auryxia (ferric citrate) tablets. Keryx established its corporate headquarters in Boston’s innovation district to support the U.S. launch of Auryxia.
