About Ampio

Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. develops innovative proprietary drugs for
inflammation, eye disease, kidney disease, CNS disease, metabolic disease and
male sexual dysfunction. The product pipeline includes new uses for previously
approved drugs and new molecular entities ("NMEs"). By concentrating on
development of new uses for previously approved drugs, approval timelines,
costs and risk of clinical failure are reduced because these drugs have strong
