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 to develop and commercialize omecamtiv mecarbil and  related 
compounds,   subject    to    Cytokinetics'    specified    development    and 
commercialization  participation   rights.   Cytokinetics   is   independently 
developing tirasemtiv,  a  fast  skeletal muscle  activator,  as  a  potential 
treatment for diseases  and medical conditions  associated with  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. 
Cytokinetics is collaborating with Astellas Pharma Inc. to develop CK-2127107,
a  skeletal  muscle  activator  structurally  distinct  from  tirasemtiv,  for 
non-neuromuscular indications. 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.

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.
