About Cytokinetics
Cytokinetics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the
discovery and development of novel small molecule therapeutics that modulate
muscle function for the potential treatment of serious diseases and medical
conditions. Cytokinetics' lead drug candidate from its cardiac muscle
contractility program, omecamtiv mecarbil, is in Phase II clinical development
for the potential treatment of heart failure. Amgen Inc. holds an exclusive
license worldwide (excluding Japan) to develop and commercialize omecamtiv
mecarbil and related compounds, subject to Cytokinetics' specified development
and commercialization participation rights. Cytokinetics is independently
developing tirasemtiv, a skeletal muscle activator, as a potential treatment
for diseases and conditions associated with aging, muscle wasting or
neuromuscular dysfunction. Tirasemtiv is currently the subject of a Phase II
clinical trials program and has been granted orphan drug designation and fast
track status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and orphan medicinal
product designation by the European Medicines Agency for the potential
treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a debilitating disease of
neuromuscular impairment in which treatment with tirasemtiv produced
potentially clinically relevant pharmacodynamic effects in Phase II trials.
All of these drug candidates have arisen from Cytokinetics' muscle biology
focused research activities and are directed towards the cytoskeleton. The
cytoskeleton is a complex biological infrastructure that plays a fundamental
role within every human cell. Additional information about Cytokinetics can be
