8 NASDAQ: CTXR BUT Infection Rates + Poor SOC Leads to Death & Morbidity Infections are Common & Dangerous Of the 7,000,000 CVCs used annually in US, up to 472,000 become infected leading to serious, life threatening infections called CRBSI/CLABSI. 1 These infections are associated with 12 - 25% mortality and morbidity. 2 Hospitals are penalized for reporting high infection rates, not to mention, incur an attributable cost of $46,000 to $65,000 per episode SOC is a Poor Option for Patients & Hospitals Current SOC is to remove and replace (R&R) the CVC, while treating with systemic antibiotics Catheter R&R causes physical and psychological symptoms in 57% to 67% of patients. 3 R&R is difficult for many patients, due to unavailability of other accessible vascular sites and the need to maintain infusion therapy Cost for just the R&R procedure is ~$10,000 Mino - Lok is the first – and only – therapy under investigation that can be used to sterilize and salvage the infected CVC avoiding the complications, discomfort and costs of removal and replacement.

9 NASDAQ: CTXR R&R procedures are invasive and discomforting to patient. R&R Procedures are costly and usually require additional hospital stay. Complications include infection, thrombosis, occlusion, and mechanical complications. • Infectious complications are reported to occur in 5% to 26% of patients; • Mechanical complications in 5% to 19%; and, • Thrombotic complications in 2% to 26%. 1,2 Mechanical complications associated with the insertion of CVCs include arterial puncture, hematoma, hemothorax, pneumothorax, arterial - venous fistula, venous air embolism, nerve injury, thoracic duct injury (left side only), intraluminal dissection, and puncture of the aorta. 3 Catheter removal and reinsertion causes physical and psychological symptoms in 57% to 67% of patients, respectively. 4 Sources (NCBI: Annals of Translational Medicine): 1.

There is no change in normal workflow and does not require exceptional training. 4. The patient does not experience any sensations similar to the threading of a central line through a vein or artery. 5. The procedure does not require any change to the tunneling or change in placement of the central line. 6. No anesthesia (general or local) is needed. 7. Standard sterile techniques still apply. *Mino - Lok Ρ is not flushed into the venous system. Locking a Central Venous Line with Mino - Lok® 10

15 NASDAQ: CTXR Regulatory Protection Qualified Infectious Disease Product (US) • Eligibility for Fast Track Status, enables frequent communication and collaboration with FDA; • Priority Review, reduces the NDA review time from 12 to 6 months; and, • Market Exclusivity, grants an additional 5 years of market exclusivity at NDA, combined with Hatch - Waxman. Fast Track Designation (US) • Fast Track expedites review of drugs which treat a serious or life - threatening condition and fills an unmet medical need. • More frequent meetings with FDA to discuss the development plan and ensure collection of appropriate data needed to support approval; • More frequent correspondence with FDA about the design of the clinical trials; • Rolling review allows for completed sections of the New Drug Application (NDA) to be submitted and reviewed by FDA rather than waiting until the entire application is compiled and submitted for review. Supplementary Protection Certificate (EU) • Extends patent protection up to 5 years for medicinal products which must undergo lengthy testing and clinical trials. 15

 

 

16 NASDAQ: CTXR Company/Source Product/Components Status Features/Weaknesses CorMedix DefenCath TM ( Neutrolin ®) taurolidine, citrate, heparin NDA accepted by the FDA in August 2020 PDUFA date 2/28/2021 Available in Europe (CE Mark) Prevention only Anti - infective only being used in prophylaxis No company has United States regulatory approval . CorMedix is focused on development of lock solutions for the prevention of CRBSI in hemodialysis (HD) patients . There are no lock solutions in development for treating CRBSI patients and salvaging indwelling, infected CVCs . The current standard - of - care is to treat the bacteremia while removing and replacing the CVC usually in a new vascular access site . There are no products being developed for treatment of infected central venous lines. Competitive Landscape 16

 

 

17 NASDAQ: CTXR Mino - Lok® (minocycline/disodium EDTA/ethyl alcohol) Treats catheter - related blood stream infections (CRBSIs). Penetrates biofilm, eradicates bacteria and salvages infected, indwelling vascular catheters while providing anti - clotting properties. Salvages central venous access in patients highly dependent on central lines and avoids the serious and expensive complications and morbidities associated with catheter removal and reinsertion. Expected to be indicated as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of Catheter - Related Blood Stream Infections (CRBSI) in combination with appropriate systemic antibiotic(s). Would have worldwide rights with appx. 16 years of exclusivity at time of launch. A major step forward in addressing a serious unmet medical need. 17

ARDS Lung Normal ARDS a type of respiratory failure characterized by rapid onset of widespread inflammation and fluid accumulation in the lungs. ARDS impairs the lungs’ ability to exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide Symptoms includes shortness of breath, rapid breathing, and bluish skin coloration; for those who survive, a decreased quality of life is common Drug Treatments No FDA approved drug therapy for ARDS Clinical Management supportive care, through the use of ventilator, as well as fluid management, and in some instances, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and/or glucocorticoids Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) 26

 

 

i - MSC Advantages: Levels of Immunomodulator Secretion 27 i - MSCs secrete higher levels of many immunomodulatory proteins Example: MMP - 1 = 6,500 pg/ml MMP - 1 = 330 pg/ml Example: VEGF - A = 10,800 pg/ml VEGF - A = 3,000 pg/ml Example: MMP - 1 = 6,500 pg/ml MMP - 1 = 330 pg/ml *MMP - 1: member of the MMP family which contribute to homeostasis and a variety of physiological processes (e.g. immunity, wound healing, angiogenesis) **VEGF - A: mediates the growth of new blood vessels from pre - existing vessels (angiogenesis) *Data on file (Novellus) Novellus iMSCs Commercial BM - MSCs

Mino - Wrap CITI - 101 Minocycline/Rifampin (M/R) Gelatin Film Bioabsorbable Extended Release Antimicrobial Wrap for the Prevention of Breast Tissue Expander Infections

 

 

35 NASDAQ: CTXR Mino - Wrap: Thesis The highest risk for TE - related infections occurs at the time of surgery and as long as drains remain in place (about two weeks post - operatively) and there are portals for microbial colonization. Mino - Wrap is a malleable, bioabsorbable, antimicrobial wrap that is placed over the TE in the surgical pocket as a solid film. It swells and liquefies in situ for a specified period of time providing extended protection against infection from the most likely pathogens. Mino - Wrap is designed to allow the temporary tissue expander to be inflated without any restrictions, and to prevent infection and biofilm formation on the implant over longer durations than current practice. The current standard of care (SOC) appears to be inadequate as the mean infection rate is very high compared to common surgical infection rates. 35
