About Strongbridge Biopharma
Strongbridge Biopharma's strategic focus is to build a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development, in-licensing, acquisition and eventual commercialization of complementary product candidates across multiple franchises that target rare diseases. Strongbridge Biopharma's lead product candidate, COR-003 (levoketoconazole), is a cortisol inhibitor that is currently being studied in the global Phase 3 trial for the treatment of endogenous Cushing's syndrome. Strongbridge Biopharma recently expanded its rare endocrine disease franchise with the completion of transactions for two Phase 2 product candidates: COR-004, a novel second-generation antisense compound, which is in clinical development for the treatment of acromegaly and designed to block the synthesis of growth hormone receptor (GHr), thereby reducing levels of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in the blood; and COR-005, a next-generation somatostatin analog (SSA) with a unique receptor affinity profile, being investigated for the treatment of acromegaly, with potential additional applications in Cushing's disease and neuroendocrine tumors. COR-003 and COR-005 have received orphan designation from both the European Medicines Agency and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the Company is pursuing orphan designation for COR-004. Strongbridge Biopharma's intent is to independently commercialize its rare endocrine assets in key global markets.
