CORAL GABLES, Fla., Sept. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Catalyst) (Nasdaq:CPRX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative therapies for people with rare debilitating diseases, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the company orphan drug designation for Firdapse® (amifampridine phosphate) for the treatment of myasthenia gravis.

Myasthenia Gravis caused by antibodies to the muscle-specific kinase (MuSK-MG) is a rare disease that is estimated to inflict 5-8% of all myasthenia gravis patients (equating to an estimate of approximately 4,500 patients in the United States). MuSK antibodies identify a clinically distinguishable, more severe form of MG. The disease is characterized by a predominance in females, prominent bulbar involvement, more severe clinical condition and resistance to treatment. Although many patients with MuSK-MG are presently treated with anticholinesterase inhibitors or immunosuppressants, such patients do not generally respond adequately to these treatments.
