CymaBay Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing breakthrough therapies to treat metabolic and rare diseases with high unmet need. Arhalofenate, the Company's lead product candidate, possesses two therapeutic actions in a single drug. In gout patients, arhalofenate is intended to prevent painful attacks in joints through an anti-inflammatory effect while at the same time promoting excretion of uric acid by the kidney, thereby addressing both the key debilitating symptom and the underlying cause of the disease. CymaBay is currently investigating arhalofenate in a 12-week Phase 2b clinical trial in patients with gout. The Company's second product candidate, MBX-8025, demonstrated favorable effects on cholesterol, triglycerides and markers of liver health in a Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with mixed dyslipidemia. MBX-8025 is currently being considered for further development in certain orphan diseases.
