Business Description

Compare:TKPYY, TEVA, AGN, FRX, MRX » details
Traded in other countries:CN2.Germany,
Catalyst Pharmaceuticals Inc was incorporated in Delaware in July 2006. The Company is a biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in developing and commercializing therapies for people with rare debilitating diseases, including Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS), congenital myasthenic syndromes (CMS), infantile spasms, and Tourette syndrome. Catalyst's lead candidate, Firdapse for the treatment of LEMS, recently completed testing in a global, multi-center, pivotal Phase 3 trial resulting in positive top-line data. Firdapse for the treatment of LEMS has received Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and orphan drug designation for CMS. Firdapse is the first and only European approved drug for symptomatic treatment in adults with LEMS. The Company is also enagaged in developing CPP-115 to treat infantile spasms, epilepsy and other neurological conditions associated with reduced GABAergic signaling, like post-traumatic stress disorder and Tourette syndrome. It has three pharmaceutical products in development namely Firdapse(tm), CPP-115 and CPP-109. The Company also competes against biotechnology companies, universities, government agencies, and other research institutions in the development of substance abuse treatments, technologies and processes. The pharmaceutical industry is intensely competitive, and any product candidate developed or licensed by the Company would likely compete with existing drugs and therapies. In the United States, drugs are subject to rigorous regulation by the FDA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, or FDCA, and implementing regulations, as well as other federal and state statutes.
