Patrick J.

We were pleased by our recent receipt of a Special Protocol Assessment agreement with the FDA for the protocol design, clinical endpoints, and statistical analysis approach to be taken in our upcoming, second Phase 3 study evaluating Firdapse for the symptomatic treatment of LEMS. We believe that our receipt of the SPA provides us with a clearly defined development and regulatory pathway to complete the development of this product. We were also gratified to have been granted orphan drug designation for Firdapse for the treatment of myasthenia gravis. Finally, we have launched our new website to make it easier for patients to access information about obtaining Firdapse at no cost through our expanded access program, which is another step in our continuing efforts to serve LEMS and CMS patients.”
