Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in July 2006. The Company is a development-stage specialty pharmaceutical Company focused on the development and commercialization of prescription drugs targeting diseases and disorders of the central nervous system with a focus on the treatment of addiction and epilepsy. It has two products in development. It is currently evaluating its drug candidate, CPP-109 (its formulation of vigabatrin, a GABA aminotransferase inhibitor) for the treatment of cocaine addiction. CPP-109 and CPP-115 have both been granted 'Fast Track' status by the FDA for the treatment of cocaine addiction, which indicates that the FDA has recognized that CPP-109 and CPP-115 are intended for the treatment of a serious or life-threatening condition for which there is no effective treatment and which demonstrates the potential to address unmet medical needs. The Company is in the early stages of developing CPP-115, another GABA aminotransferase inhibitor. It is planning to develop CPP-115 for several indications, including drug addiction, epilepsy (initially infantile spasms) and other selected central nervous disease indications. The Company competes against pharmaceutical companies that are developing or currently marketing therapies for addictive substances. The Company also competes against biotechnology companies, universities, government agencies, and other research institutions in the development of substance abuse treatments, technologies and processes.
