Corroles are synthetic, porphyrin molecules that can act as catalytic antioxidants. Corrole derivatives can be used for lowering the probability of developing chronic kidney disease, especially diabetic nephropathy, for which there are currently no approved therapeutic drugs. Additionally, they can act as catalytic oxidants which can be used as oral or intravenous treatment for reducing the chances of developing cataracts, especially in diabetic patients.
