US = 1 Million patients
WW = 4 to 6 Million patients
2030 = Estimated 2X due to the aging
population
Approx. 25 to 50% of PD patients
experience OFF episodes = impaired
movement or speaking
1 to 6 OFF episodes daily in moderate and
severe patients
Episodes are more frequent over time
Episodes are sporadic and limit ability to
move and engage in daily life
Chronic treatments become less effective
over time
Dopamine stimulation, replacement or
breakdown of inhibitors of dopamine =
primary pharmacotherapy patients
5
Types of OFF Episodes

OFF episodes are the result of insufficient dopamine in the brain
1.
Morning Akinesia

2.
3.
Wearing off

Sub-therapeutic levels of levodopa prior to next scheduled dose

Can be treated by re-arranging dose schedule within limits
Unpredictable OFF

4.
Despite constant levels of levodopa, consumption of dopamine in the
brain varies and depletes dopamine in the brain
Latency to ON (dose failure)


Lack of dopaminergic drugs overnight results in depleted dopamine
reserves in the brain; the most difficult OFF to treat
Poor absorption of levodopa results in low brain levels of dopamine
Apomorphine rapidly and effectively treats these OFF states

Apomorphine

Apomorphine is currently the only
approved drug for the acute
management of OFF episodes

Apomorphine is the only member of the
dopamine agonist class that has rapid
onset of activity

Apomorphine is currently only available
as an injection

APL-130277 Overview and Expected Attributes




APL-130277 is a fast-acting, sublingual, thin filmstrip
formulation of apomorphine
Designed to manage OFF episodes in Parkinson’s patients
To date, studied in approximately 110 patients/subjects in five
clinical studies
Most recent result is the CTH-105 Phase 2 study
Safety/Tolerability/Efficacy
Health Economics



Minimal irritation
Tolerable – few and mild adverse events
Appropriate ∆ in UPDRS III & symptomatic
relief
Potential impact on levodopa use and
duration of ON

CTH-105 Study Design

Study parameters
 n=16
 16 patients have completed the dosing regimen
 Due to over enrollment of the study, an additional 3 patients are still in dosing
(Total n=19)
 Multicenter open-label study in patients with Parkinson’s disease
 Subjects required to have a minimum of 2 hours OFF daily

Study protocol
 Patients pre-treated with Tigan® (trimethobenzamide) for 3 days prior to
titration and during dosing
 Levodopa withheld the morning of dosing to induce OFF
 Escalating doses starting at 10mg up to 30mg, in 5mg increments at a
minimum of three hours between doses, based on response (i.e. change in
UPDRS part III, clinician observation, patient observation)
 UPDRS part III was measured at 15, 30, 45, 60 and 90 minutes
 Effective dose confirmed at a subsequent visit

Top-line Results – Change in UPDRS III and ON
Mean Change in UPDRS Part III from Baseline Over Study Period
For Patients Converting from OFF to ON

The mean baseline UPDRS III
in an OFF state was 41.4

The maximum mean change
from baseline UPDRS III was
18.4

The mean dose used to
convert patients to ON was
18.4mg

The reported mean time to
ON was 22 minutes

Achieved an approximate
45% improvement in motor
function
A clinically meaningful improvement in motor control
occurred in as early as 10 minutes after administration
of APL-130277 and lasted longer than 90 minutes

Phase 2 Safety Profile

16 patients completed with 60 total doses administered

Treatment with APL-130277 was safe and well tolerated

There were no serious adverse events

Nausea was reported by 3 subjects at doses of 10mg, 15mg and 20mg;
there were no reports of nausea at higher doses

One of these patients also experienced a mild episode of emesis

There were no reports of local irritation or orthostatic hypotension in any
subject treated

Phase 3 Studies Expected to Begin in 2015

Phase 3 pivotal studies of longer duration and with larger patient
numbers to confirm:

Efficacy

Safety

Details of studies to be confirmed with the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (“FDA”) during an End of Phase II meeting

These studies will form the registration package necessary for a
U.S. 505(b)(2) NDA with the FDA expected to be submitted in 2016

Commercial Opportunity

Market research with physicians, payors, and patients indicate OFF episodes are a
significant unmet need

Recent Michael J. Fox Foundation Survey found that 90% of Parkinson’s patients
suffer OFF episodes and that 65% suffer at least 2 hours OFF daily

Academic poster presentation by Rizos et. al. found that 48% of mild Parkinson’s
patients, 70% of moderate patients, and 62% of severe patients suffer Early
Morning OFF

Cynapsus currently estimates APL-130277 may be appropriate treatment for
approximately 1 million Parkinson’s patients worldwide:

United States = 400,000

European Union (Largest 5 Countries) = 400,000

Rest of World = 200,000

Patients manage one to six OFF episodes per day

Anticipated product launch in U.S. in 2017; Europe and Japan in 2018
