"We have made great progress in advancing the development of RP103 and ensuring financial stability for the potential U.S. commercial launch of RP103," said Christopher M. Starr, Ph.D., Raptor's Chief Executive Officer. "In November in a poster session at Kidney Week, we presented positive long-term data from extended use of RP103 in patients with nephropathic cystinosis. In addition, in December we secured a $50 million loan facility which enables us to execute our pre-launch initiatives and to build our commercial infrastructure in anticipation of a potential FDA approval of RP103 for the treatment of cystinosis."
