Vera Therapeutics


Patients are the reason for our existence. We strive to change the standard of care for patients with immunologic diseases.


Up to 50% of IgAN patients progress to end-stage renal disease within 20 years from initial diagnosis, requiring dialysis or kidney transplant, which causes considerable impact on patients’ lives. Here are the stories of three courageous individuals with IgAN.
“The doctors told my parents and me that there was no cure, no proven treatment and that this disease would likely lead to kidney failure. I felt completely overwhelmed and also confused.”
“Living with IgA Nephropathy is a game-changer, and it will impact everything from what you eat to how you feel mentally every day. We need to move the needle to find a cure and a treatment for this disease.”
“When I was diagnosed, I was terrified. I was young so I did not really know what was going on, besides the fact that I am sick, and I am not going to get better. All I really remember is being scared and seeing my parents so scared and hurting.”
We are pleased to be partnering with:
