About Cynapsus Therapeutics

Cynapsus is a specialty clinical development pharmaceutical company targeting diseases of the brain. Cynapsus' lead drug candidate, APL-130277, is a reformulation of an approved drug for the treatment of motor fluctuation in Parkinson's disease. APL-130277 is designed to be a convenient, fast-acting rescue of patients experiencing motor fluctuations from "off" episodes during the day. The reformulation could address a much larger moderate to severe patient population than the current subcutaneous form, which represents approximately 25% to 50% of Parkinson's patients. The company is focused on rapidly maximizing the value of APL-130277 by advancing it to pivotal studies in advance of a New Drug Application expected to be completed by the end of 2012, followed by out-licensing to an appropriate pharmaceutical partner. More information about Cynapsus (TSX VENTURE:CTH) is available at
