Cytokinetics presents data on CK-1827452

South San Francisco, CA, September 19, 2005 Cytokinetics, Incorporated (Nasdaq: CYTK) announced that the company presented a scientific poster on CK-1827452, a novel small molecule activator of cardiac myosin, today at the 2005 Annual Heart Failure Society of America Meeting in Boca Raton, Florida. The moderated oral poster presentation highlighted data relating to the mechanism of action of CK-1827452 as well as its characterization in a heart failure model in animals. CK-1827452 is the first clinical drug candidate to arise from the company's cardiac myosin activator program, research that leverages Cytokinetics' expertise in cytoskeletal pharmacology and muscle contractility. CK-1827452 is currently the subject of a first-time-in-human Phase I clinical trial designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of this novel drug candidate.

The poster titled, "Direct Activation of Cardiac Myosin by CK-1827452 Improves Cardiac Function in a Dog Heart Failure Model." [Poster Presentation #017] has been displayed today and will be presented at 5:45 pm ET by Fady Malik, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.C., Director, Cardiovascular Programs, Cytokinetics. The presentation details research directed to the discovery and optimization of small molecules that improve cardiac function in a manner consistent with the therapeutic hypothesis, specifically that improving cardiac contractility by directly activating cardiac myosin can potentially address the liabilities of current inotropic drugs. The data demonstrate that CK-1827452 selectively activates cardiac myosin. In cardiac myocytes, CK-1827452 increases contractility without changes in the cellular calcium transient, a finding consistent with its mechanism of action. In addition, CK-1827452 demonstrates an improvement in cardiac function and output, hemodynamics and efficiency in a dog model of heart failure in a manner that supports the therapeutic hypothesis.
