About Cynapsus Therapeutics

Cynapsus is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing an improved dosing formulation of an approved drug used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. The prevalence of Parkinson's disease, a chronic and progressive neurodegenerative disease that impacts motor activity, is increasing with the aging of the population. Current medications only control the disease's symptoms; however, these treatments become less effective over time as the disease progresses. Between 25 percent and 50 percent of patients experience episodes in which they cannot move or talk. Cynapsus' lead drug candidate, APL-130277, is an easy-to-administer, fast-acting and oral reformulation of an approved drug, apomorphine, used to rescue patients from these episodes. Cynapsus 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 2013, followed by out-licensing to an appropriate pharmaceutical partner.
