Except for historical information, all of the statements, expectations and assumptions contained in this news release are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Although Furiex attempts to be accurate in making these forward-looking statements, it is possible that future circumstances might differ from the assumptions on which such statements are based. In addition, other important factors which could cause actual results to differ materially include the following: the risks and expense of continuing the research and development activities of our existing candidates; inability of our existing collaborators to effectively market approved products for which we receive royalty and sales-based milestone payments; continuing losses and our potential need for additional financing; the risk of finding collaborators for our late-stage product candidates; progress of product candidates in clinical trials and regulatory approvals as it relates to receiving future milestone payments; changes in the safety and efficacy profile of our existing candidates as they progress through research and development; potential U.S. Food and Drug Administration changes to its regulatory guidance; new collaborative agreements that we might enter into in the future; the costs of defending or prosecuting any patent opposition or litigation necessary to protect our proprietary technologies; and the other risk factors set forth from time to time in the SEC filings for Furiex, copies of which can be found on our website.
