Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. was incorporated in February 2005. The Company is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of therapies for patients with debilitating rare diseases. The Company currently operates in one business segment focusing on the development and commercialization of its product, lomitapide. The product, lomitapide, received marketing approval, under the brand name JUXTAPID (lomitapide) capsules ("JUXTAPID"). It is an adjunct to a low-fat diet and other lipid-lowering treatments, including low-density lipoprotein ("LDL") apheresis where available, to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol ("LDL-C"), total cholesterol ("TC"), apolipoprotein B ("apo B") and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ("non-HDL-C") in adult patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia ("HoFH"). Lomitapide is also approved for the treatment of HoFH in Norway, Iceland, Mexico and Canada. The Company also sells lomitapide, on a named patient basis, in Brazil and in a limited number of other countries outside the U.S. and the EU where such sales are authorized based on the U.S. or the EU approval. The Company also launched JUXTAPID in the U.S. The Company relies on a contract manufacturer to produce drug substance for lomitapide and another contract manufacturer for drug product for its clinical trials and for commercial supplies. It distributes JUXTAPID through a specialty pharmacy that distributes JUXTAPID directly to patients and, under limited circumstances, to other purchasers. The lomitapide patent portfolio consists of five issued U.S. patents and issued patents in Europe, Canada, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Japan and pending applications in the U.S., Australia, Japan, Canada, India and South Korea, all of which have been licensed in a specific field.
