Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners Company Profile

19:59 EST 14th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Catalyst is a specialty pharmaceutical company of Coral Gables, Florida, that acquires or in-licenses, develops and commercializes prescription drugs for the treatment of drug addiction. Catalyst is developing vigabatrin (designated CPP-109 by Catalyst) for the treatment of addiction to cocaine, methamphetamine and other addictive substances. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has stated that finding a pharmacological treatment for cocaine addiction is their number one research priority.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recognized that cocaine addiction is a "serious, life-threatening condition for which there is no current drug treatment," and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has stated that finding a pharmacological treatment for cocaine addiction is their number one research priority. Because of the high social and financial cost of addiction, Catalyst's mission to develop a treatment for drug addiction could prove beneficial not only to addicts, but to investors and to society at large. Catalyst is particularly interested in vigabatrin as the result of two proof-of-concept studies in humans and a number of successful animal trials. Previous studies in established animal models of addiction, involving both rats and primates, have shown that vigabatrin interrupts the neural mechanisms essential for addiction. In preclinical studies, vigabatrin prevented the characteristic drug-seeking behavior of addicted animals.
