The first product: Lialda®
• The active ingredient Mesalamine [or 5-ASA or amino salicylic acid] is an off-patent chemical entity, used since the years ‘60 in the intestinal inflammatory diseases • The product is indicated for Patients with Ulcerative Colitis of mild to moderate severity • Market entry in March 2007. revenue 2009 $ 210 m. Analysts projections for 2010: $ 293 m (Europe will come on-stream); for 2011 • Competing products in 2009 were Asacol $ 684 m; Pentasa $236 m; Canasa $ 95 m all with increased sales but decreasing TRX.
What does the ANDA filing mean
• Zydus filed aNDA for 1200 mg Mesalamine tablets in May 2010; Shire has filed law suit for patent infringement• Whilst this is pending the FDA will not act on the ANDA • To date FDA required generics need to prove bioequivalence for 5-ASA and pro-drugs in IBD by conducting clinical trials • New ruling by FDA in July 2010 to determine bioequivalence • in vitro dissolution tests and • comparative PK/safety studies • Demonstrating identical dissolution/PK profile to our extended release MMX technology will be very challenging • Shire is completing clinical trials for Lialda in Diverticulitis. If FDA approves, they will be granted a New Use/New Clinical Studies exclusivity for Lialda for an additional three years Cosmo revenue scenarios for Lialda

Definition of Registration remission as determined by
the Regulator, has been getting increasingly stringent
• Definition of patients has become more precise
• Use of colonoscopy at entry• Use of histology at entry • Definitions of clinical endpoints has become more stringent • Move from UCDAI 2 to ≤1 or 0 • Measurement of clinical endpoints has become more precise • From patient observation, to sigmoidoscopy, to colonoscopy, to two colonoscopies Budesonide MMX®: going forward
Projected filing
• MAA in EU in H1 2011; NDA for USA H2 2011 • Market entry
• In USA there is no steroid approved for mild to moderate UC• 2009 Entocort sales at $ 237 m equal to Lialda® for a patient base 2/3 that of • Projected peak sales
• USA $150-250 million • targeted at the 60-80% of patients that do not get remission with 5 ASA's• After assessing safety data the entire 5 ASA market could be targeted • RoW EUR 100 million • Licensing revenue
• USA: licensed to Santarus; 12-14% royalties; plus 10% COGS for US• RoW: 25-33% total return• Japan: unpartnered Cosmo Revenue scenarios for Budesonide MMX®
Business case
• Between 60% (Lialda study) and 86% (Cosmo/Santarus study) of mild to moderate patients do not go into remission with 5 ASAs • In the US 850'000 persons have UC; 60% are mild to moderate • In the EU 850'000 persons have UC, 60% are mild to moderate • Assuming 2 flares per year, between 1.2 m and 1.4 m flares p.a. are ineffectively treated with 5 ASAs in USA and EU • This is a market potential of $1-1.4 b • 5 ASAs market in US is $ 1.4 b p.a.

X 72 hours, superiority vs. placebo • Highly effective against Clostridium Dificile Associated Disease (CDAD)• Probably effective in Hepatic Encephalopathy• Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Rifamycin SV MMX® • Could also be used for IBD supportive therapies• Could be the drug of choice for the treatment of Diverticulitis, a chronic disease that affects more than 60% of people over the age LMW Heparin MMX
Cosmo's new business proposition for LMW Heparin
2 Cosmo drugs are targeted at induction of remission of
mild to moderate UC
• Lialda
• Budesonide MMX if approved
Long term studies indicate that 50% of all patients will
be in remission at any given time
The market value for maintenance should be about 2/3
of the induction of remission market

Cosmo's expanding business proposition
So far focus has been on Ulcerative Colitis, a disease
that affects 1.7 m persons in the US and EU
Next step has been to identify other areas where the
MMX technology can be applied that are
• Larger
• Can be accessed faster
• Yet have low competition
CB -01-16
Naloxone MMX
CB-01-16: opioid antagonist MMX
Chemical entity: Naloxone
Mechanism of action
• Naloxone is a powerful, off patent, opioid antagonist that displaces opioids from the cell receptor.
• Activation of opioid receptors present in the intestinal wall induces constipation. Specially affects long term users • 1 h plasma half life when administered parenterally, so the extended release formulations are needed • When taken orally, has a very high first pass effect being practically totally metabolized in the liver, without impairing analgesic effects • MMX application
• MMX technology brings Naloxone to the colon only where it displaces the opioid from their receptors thus restoring gut peristaltic movements CB-01-16: opioid antagonist MMX
Market size
• In the US there are 12 m persons that are chronic opioid users and more than 4.5 m persons that suffer from chronic opioid induced • Target is the home market • Status
• Phase I with dose escalation to start in H1 2011 • Market need; competition
• Currently no tablet is approved for use• NKTR 119 uses Naloxol through pegilation technology. Licensed to CB-01-16: opioid antagonist MMX
With 4.3 m persons with chronic constipation in the US
alone this is a large market
• No treatments available for home use
Proof of concept can be achieved at low cost and fast
• Increasing dose Phase I will give quick indication whether peristaltic movement can be improved without pain increase • Poor experience of competitors
• a number of unsuccessful attempts at creating Naloxon based tablets have been made • New physician marketing base required
• Big marketing organization is required to market the drug Methylene Blue MMX
Worldwide variation in colorectal cancer mortality rate
(cases per 100.000)
> 33.5/100.000 Costs of colorectal cancers
Colorectal cancer screening program
• Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of death for tumors in western countries • It develops through a precursor (polyp) which can be identified and removed during colonoscopy • The core goal of colonoscopy is to detect all premalignant polyps, primarily adenomas, and remove • All western countries have largely adopted nationwide screening programs with FOBT or colonoscopy to reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer Colonoscopy in colorectal screening program
Observational studies show that colonoscopy-
based screening programs have resulted in:
- earlier detection of cancer
Hoff G, et al BMJ 2009, Gross CP JAMA 2006 - decreased incidence of colorectal cancer
Brenner H, Eur J Cancer 2009, Kahi CJ, Clin Gast Hep 2009 - decreased mortality from colorectal cancer
Baxter NN, Ann Intern Med 2009 But Colonoscopy is an imperfect diagnostic tool
Population based studies suggest that 2% to 6% of
prevalent cancers are missed by colonoscopy
Adenoma missing rate is around 15-20%
Colonoscopy miss rate may be higher for lesions in
the proximal colon
Colonoscopy miss rate may be higher for flat lesions
and for those smaller than 10 mm

• In expert hands and with ancillary techniques (chromoendoscopy, NBI, etc) should be around 50% in patients older than 50 y • Appropriate detection impacts: therapeutic management, risk stratification for cancer and follow-up programs • Improper detection significantly increases costs management for the single patients and the health system What is our goal

Differentiate: Adenoma vs hyperplastic
Differentiate: Advanced vs early
The concept of chromoendoscopy for colonoscopy
• In chromoendoscopy, intravital dyes like methylene blue are topically applied onto the mucosal surface • The aim is to enhance superficial patterns and contrast of pathologic versus normal mucosa • This relatively old technique can be used in an untargeted fashion ("panchromoendoscopy") to increase detection of lesions • Alternatively can be used in a targeted mode to define the borders of the lesions and their pattern (adenoma vs hyperplastic or adenoma vs carcinoma) Methylene Blue dye (0,5%)
It's selectively absorbed by the normal colonic columnar cells
No uptake by the dysplastic or neoplastic cells
Increases the visibility of the structure because of the color
Homogeneous diffusion Non-colored area or Why Methylene Blue?
• Easily available for pharma use • Long tradition as dye for foods • Large number of studies on toxicity • Long tradition in digestive endoscopy (> 20 y) • Probably the most largest used dye in endoscopy Narrow Band Imaging Old Technique ('70s)

Dye diffusion is not homogeneous
Learning curve/standardization
Italian survey on chromoendoscopy
Why the use of dye is still scarcely adopted in
• Dye purchase and storage difficulties • Dye preparation-dilution • Dirty technique • It takes pre-colonoscopy time and efforts (costs) • It takes time if a "pan-chromo-colonoscopy" is required MMX released methylene blue
• Revolutionary concept • Easy and smart way to by-pass a number of issues precluding large-scale adoption of chromoendoscopy • MMX tablets containing methylene blue • MMX technology targets release of the dye at colonic level • Pre-colonoscopy dyeing of the mucosa • No interference with standard bowel prep The future of colonoscopy
CB-17-01: Methylene Blue MMX business rationale
With 15 m colonoscopies in the US alone and > 30 m
WW this is a very large market
• The market potential is as high as all colonoscopies
Great leeway in pricing
• Using the Methylene Blue tablet decreases time of colonoscopy by up to 50% vs classical chromoendoscopy • Inexpensive and fast to develop
• Proof of concept attained, major hurdle of PK study successfully completed • Clinical trials are fast, market entry targeted for end 2013 • New application with no competition in sight
Anti Androgen

• New Chemical Entity (NCE) with antiandrogen properties, under development for topical treatment • Anti-androgen without systemic effects• Acts only at the level of the skin androgen receptor, blocking the binding or displacing androgen hormones to the sebaceous gland and to the hair follicle; additionally it has moderate anti inflammatory activity • Medical need
• A treatment for acne, sebborhea, alopecia and hirsutism that is effective by topical application • A topical treatment that provides a reliable alternative to retinoids (poorly tolerated and presence of side-effects) and antibiotics/anti- • Is not a skin irritant• Due to its peripheral effects, it does not induce hormonal imbalance Endocrine control of androgen-dependent organs,

Overview from a clinical, ambulatory experience (I)
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of CB-03-01 1% and 5%, compared to Cyproterone acetate and 17α-estradiol applied by hydroelectrophoresis to scalp of subjects affected by AGA Single-centre, open-label, not randomized, four parallel groups evaluation Subjects:
40 males affected by AGA (Hamilton grade I-IV)30 females of no child-bearing potential affected by AGA (Ludwig grade I)All subjects in good general conditions, not receiving AGA treatments in previous 6 months, and signing informed consent form Products:
CB-03-01 1% (males & females)CB-03-01 5% (males & females)Cyproterone acetate 1% (only females)17α-estradiol 1% (only males) Treatment:
Test items dispersed in a specific gel for hydroelectrophoresis, and applied to the scalp by hydroelectrophoretic technique. Applications occurred once or twice a week, for five sessions of about 20 minutes each Assessments:
Clinical evaluation

Hair shaft diameter, Pull test, Wash test, Follicular density, Sebometric evaluation, Proportion of subjects improved Confocal Microscopy Sebaceous gland size, Fibrosis evaluation, and Peribulbar inflammation
Evaluation performed at baseline, and 1 and 4 weeks after completion of treatment CB-03-01 in Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)
Pull test
Wash test
T1= one week after treatment completion; T2= four weeks after treatment completion
CB-03-01 at both concentrations 1% and 5% consistently increased hair diameter, follicular density and overall improvement more than Cyproterone acetate 1% and 17α-estradiol 1% CB-03-01 was also more active than comparators in improving pull test, wash test and sebometric evaluation No evident difference of activity detected between the two concentrations of CB-03-01 No local or systemic effects were reported following the administration of the tested items CB-03-01 in Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)
The technique highlighted: • an increase in the shaft diameter, mainly evident in CB-03-01 groups, as reported in clinical data table
• an impressive reduction of sebacious gland size, observed in about 85% of treated subjects.
• a decrease in dermal fibrosis, indicator of inflammatory process, after treatment mainly with CB-03-01
• a reduction of vessel diameter of peribulbar microvasculature
• a reduction of inflammatory cells after treatment with CB-03-01.
