“We executed our business plan exceptionally well in 2012 and secured FDA approval of our first proprietary product, Gattex®,” said Francois Nader, M.D., president and chief executive officer of NPS Pharmaceuticals. “The launch of Gattex is underway as the first and only long-term treatment for adult short bowel syndrome, an ultra-orphan and highly debilitating disorder. Gattex has tremendous potential to transform patients’ lives and grow our business substantially. In the year ahead, we look forward to providing updates on our launch progress, reporting results from our STEPS 2 study, and beginning a pediatric development program for Gattex. We are also preparing for other important milestones including the submission of our Biologics License Application for our second proprietary product, Natpara®, as the first replacement therapy for hypoparathyroidism.”
