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 and CK-2127107, both fast skeletal muscle activators, as
potential treatments  for  diseases  and medical  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

potential drug candidates that could  slow or prevent clinical development  or 
product approval, including risks  that current and  past results of  clinical 
trials or preclinical studies may not be indicative of future clinical  trials 
results and that Cytokinetics' drug  candidates and potential drug  candidates 
may have unexpected adverse side  effects or inadequate therapeutic  efficacy.
