Rigel To Focus On ITP, DLE And Dry Eye
Date:9/5/2013

ucturing and other charges associated with this measure, which are expected to be recorded predominantly in the third quarter of 2013.  As of June 30, 2013, the company had $251 million in cash and equivalents, which Rigel believes is enough to maintain its current development priorities into 2016.

Rigel remains committed to its mission to identify and develop novel small molecule therapeutics and will maintain active programs including:  R118, an oral AMPK activator being developed as a potential treatment for intermittent claudication (peripheral artery disease).

Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

Chronic ITP affects approximately 100,000 people, with the majority of these cases being in women. ITP is a blood disorder in which the immune system attacks and destroys the body's own blood platelets, which have an important role in the clotting and healing process.  ITP patients can suffer bruising, bleeding and fatigue as a result of their low blood platelet counts.  Currently marketed therapies aim to raise blood platelet counts, but do not address the etiology of the disorder.  The results of Rigel's Phase 2 study, published in Blood (volume 113, number 14), showed that fostamatinib may be effective in treating this rare autoimmune disorder.

Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (DLE)

DLE is a chronic autoimmune disease of the skin, which affects approximately 300,000 Americans - with an estimated 16,000 additional new cases diagnosed in the US each year.  Disc-shaped sores with inflammation, swelling, scaling, scarring, pigment discoloration, and even hair loss characterize the disease. The lesions most commonly appear in sun-exposed areas, predominantly on the face, chest and scalp. Rigel's R333 is a potent, topical JAK and SYK inhibitor that is designed to interrupt pivotal inflammatory cascade signals with the potential to prevent or diminish both acute and chronic symptoms.
