About KYNAPID

KYNAPID (vernakalant hydrochloride) Injection, or vernakalant (iv), is an investigational new drug for the rapid conversion of acute atrial fibrillation to sinus rhythm. Its mechanism of action involves the selective blockade of multiple ion channels in the heart that are known to be active during episodes of atrial fibrillation.

In October 2003, Cardiome granted Astellas Pharma US, Inc. an exclusive license to develop and commercialize KYNAPID in North America, with Astellas responsible for 75% of development costs. Astellas and Cardiome conducted four successful Phase 3 clinical trials which demonstrated the potential for KYNAPID as a conversion agent. In December 2004 and September 2005, we announced positive top-line results for the first and second pivotal Phase 3 atrial fibrillation trials, or ACT 1 and ACT 3, respectively. In addition, positive top-line results from ACT 2, evaluating KYNAPID for the treatment of atrial fibrillation following cardiac surgery, were announced in June 2007. Astellas also conducted an open-label safety study, or ACT 4, in order to gather additional safety data.

The NDA for KYNAPID was submitted in December 2006. In December 2007, the FDA Cardiovascular and Renal Drugs Advisory Committee recommended to the FDA that KYNAPID be approved for rapid conversion of acute atrial fibrillation to sinus rhythm. In August 2008, Astellas received an Approvable letter from the FDA.
