Cystinosis is an inborn metabolic error characterized by abnormal transport of cystine, an amino acid, out of the lysosomes. Symptom onset typically occurs within the first year after birth, when cystine crystals accumulate in various tissues and organs, including the kidneys, brain, liver, thyroid, pancreas, muscles and eyes. Failure to treat the disease can cause serious health consequences, including renal failure and resultant kidney transplant, growth failure, rickets, photophobia and blindness.

In collaboration with the University of California, San Diego ("UCSD"), supported by the Cystinosis Research Foundation ("CRF"), Raptor is developing a delayed-release version of cysteamine bitartrate ("DR Cysteamine") for the treatment of Cystinosis. Cysteamine bitartrate, a cystine-depleting agent, is the only Cystinosis treatment approved for sale by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") and the European Medicines Agency ("EMEA").
