Cytokinetics Inc. Q2 2010 Earnings Call Transcript

As Andy and I will both discuss later in the call, Amgen and Cytokinetics continue to work closely together in the development of only omecamtiv mecarbil as a potential treatment for heart failure. We expect to be initiating in the coming months under Amgen's sponsorship a pharmacokinetic trial of two distinct oral formulations of omecamtiv mecarbil in a stable heart failure patients as well as an additional study of an oral form of our drug candidate in renally comprised patients.

Moreover, we are together putting the finishing touches on the protocol for our phase IIB trial intended to evaluate the intravenous form of only omecamtiv mecarbil in more acutely ill heart failure patients. Overall, in the second quarter Cytokinetics continued to execute well against clinical development timelines with the goal of progressing our therapeutic pipeline and importantly doing so in a physically responsible way.

I now would like to turn the call over to Andy to elaborate on the specific clinical progress achieved during the last quarter in our respective drug development programs and to provide some insights into our plans for the future.

Andy Wolff

Thank you, Robert. The second quarter was a busy one as our activities starting on advancing our redrug candidate from our skeletal muscle activator program CK-357 into phase IIa evidenced of effect trial designed and conducted by Cytokinetics.

In the last quarter, we initiated dosing in our phase IIa evidence of the effect clinical trial of CK-357 and patients with ALS. You may recall that this trial is a double blind randomized placebo controlled treat carrying crossover, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic trail of CK-357 in at least 36 and of the 72 male and female patients with ALS.
