Unidentified Analyst

(inaudible) one of the biotech analysts here at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. It's my pleasure to introduce Avanir Pharmaceuticals who's got Keith Katkin, CEO to give us the latest presentation.

Keith Katkin

Thanks Rachel and good morning everyone. Thank you for joining us for the Avanir corporate presentation. I'm joined here today with Dr. Ian Clements, our Head of Investor Relations and Greg Flesher, our Chief Business Officer. I'd like to start with our forward looking statement as I will be making statements that are forward looking in nature. We encourage everyone to look at our publicly available documents either on the Avanir website or on the SEC's website.

Avanir is a specialty biopharmaceutical company focused on CNS therapies and our lead product, NUEDEXTA launched a little over a year ago and has met with very nice market acceptance and growth over the past year as the first and only FDA approved product for the treatment of pseudobulbar affect or PBA. Pseudobulbar affect is a very large market with a high unmet medical need and now that we have a marketed product we start to look to develop NUEDEXTA for other potential indications and if you look at NUEDEXTA from a mechanistic perspective, it is an NMDA receptor antagonist and a sigma-1 agonist and because of that mechanism there is a potential for numerous follow on indications, some of which are listed here on this slide and currently are soon to be under developed by Avanir.
