About Theratechnologies

Theratechnologies (TSX:TH) is a Canadian biopharmaceutical company with core expertise in peptide-based therapeutics. Its most advanced compound, tesamorelin, is an analogue of the human growth hormone releasing factor.

In late 2008, Theratechnologies completed its Phase 3 clinical program which was designed to evaluate tesamorelin in treating excess abdominal fat in HIV patients with lipodystrophy. Theratechnologies also signed a collaboration and licensing agreement with EMD Serono, Inc., for the commercialization of tesamorelin in the United States.

With a New Drug Application recently filed with the U.S. authorities, Theratechnologies' growth strategy is firmly focused on the development of tesamorelin in the United States and in other potential HIV-associated lipodystrophy markets, as well as through additional clinical programs for other medical conditions.
