About Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Adamas is a pharmaceutical company that is developing new medicines to improve the daily lives of those affected by chronic neurologic disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy. Adamas has pioneered a platform based on an understanding of time dependent biologic effects of disease activity and drug response to achieve symptomatic relief without additional tolerability issues. We have developed a portfolio of chrono-synchronous therapies to potentially address chronic neurologic disorders. Our lead program, ADS-5102 in development for the treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) in patients with Parkinson's disease, is currently being evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for potential approval in 2017. ADS-5102 has additional opportunities to potentially provide symptomatic treatment of other chronic neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis walking impairment and several other indications. Our newest clinical development program, ADS-4101, is entering the clinic for the improved control of epileptic seizures. Additionally, through our license agreement with Forest Laboratories Holding Ltd. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Allergan plc), the company is eligible to receive royalties on sales of NAMENDA XR® and NAMZARIC® beginning in June of 2018 and May of 2020, respectively.
