CORAL GABLES, Fla., April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners, Inc. (Nasdaq:CPRX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel prescription drugs targeting rare (orphan) neuromuscular and neurological diseases and disorders, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. Patrick J. McEnany, CEO of Catalyst, commented, "2012 was a very challenging and yet transformational year for our company. Clearly the Catalyst team was very disappointed with the results of our Phase IIb clinical trial for CPP-109 as a potential treatment for cocaine addiction. We had high expectations to be able to deliver the first effective drug therapy for this horrific, intractable disease. We want to thank all the patients, patients' families, physicians, investigators and our partner, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, for their support and involvement in this project."
