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
