About Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners
Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceuticalcompany focused on the development and commercialization of prescription drugsfor the treatment of addiction and obsessive compulsive disorders. The Companyhas obtained from Brookhaven National Laboratory an exclusive worldwidelicense for nine patents and four patents pending in the United Statesrelating to the right to use vigabatrin to treat a wide variety of substanceaddictions and obsessive compulsive disorders. Catalyst has also been grantedrights to Brookhaven's vigabatrin-related foreign patents or patents pendingin more than 30 countries. The Company's initial product candidate based onvigabatrin is CPP-109. CPP-109 has been granted "Fast Track" status by the U.S.Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of cocaine addiction. Thisindicates that the FDA has recognized that CPP-109 is intended for thetreatment of a serious or life-threatening condition for which there is noeffective treatment and which demonstrates the potential to address unmetmedical needs. Catalyst recently initiated a 180 patient randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center U.S. Phase II clinical trial of CPP-109 in patients with cocaine addiction and expects to initiate a similar trialin patients with methamphetamine addiction later this year.
