Robert Blum

Thank you, Sharon. During the second quarter Cytokinetics took additional steps to execute on the company's business plan directed to the biology of muscle function. In the second quarter, we initiated dosing in two Phase IIa evidence of effect trials of the lead drug candidate from our skeletal muscle activator program, CK-2017357 or CK-357. One in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS and the other in patients with symptoms of claudication.

With these trial initiations, we are demonstrating clear progress towards our goal of advancing a broad and sustainable pipeline of novel mechanism drug candidates. We are especially pleased with the continuation of the Phase IIa trial of CK-357 in patients with ALS. In recent days, we conducted an interim review of the data with results supporting the continuation of this trial under the current protocol. As Andy will elaborate, we are pleased with what we have seen to-date in terms of the apparent safety and tolerability of CK-357 in these patients as well as the dose proportional and predictable pharmacokinetic profile of this drug candidate in the patient studied. We look forward to additional data from this trial by the end of the year.
