About Cytokinetics

Cytokinetics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the
discovery and development of novel small molecule therapeutics that modulate
muscle function for the potential treatment of serious diseases and medical
conditions. Cytokinetics' lead drug candidate from its cardiac muscle
contractility program, omecamtiv mecarbil, is in Phase II clinical development
for the potential treatment of heart failure. Amgen Inc. holds an exclusive
license worldwide (excluding Japan) to develop and commercialize omecamtiv
mecarbil and related compounds, subject to Cytokinetics' specified development
and commercialization participation rights. Cytokinetics is independently
developing tirasemtiv, a skeletal muscle activator, as a potential treatment for
diseases and conditions associated with aging, muscle wasting or neuromuscular
dysfunction. Tirasemtiv is currently the subject of a Phase II clinical trials
program and has been granted orphan drug designation and fast track status by
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and orphan medicinal product designation
by the European Medicines Agency for the potential treatment of amyotrophic
lateral sclerosis, a debilitating disease of neuromuscular impairment in which
treatment with tirasemtiv produced potentially clinically relevant
pharmacodynamic effects in Phase II trials. All of these drug candidates have
arisen from Cytokinetics' muscle biology focused research activities and are
directed towards the cytoskeleton. The cytoskeleton is a complex biological
infrastructure that plays a fundamental role within every human cell. Additional
