Where did bempedoic acid come from and what is the patent life?

Bempedoic acid (ETC-1002) was discovered and patented by the original Esperion team.  We re-acquired full worldwide rights to bempedoic acid from Pfizer in May 2008 when Pfizer announced they were exiting cardiovascular research and development. Bempedoic acid composition of matter (COM) patent coverage, including patent term extension (PTE), extends through 2030 in the U.S and through 2028 in Europe and Japan.  Additionally, post-approval market exclusively may also be available in certain territories. Patent coverage for the fixed dose combination of bempedoic acid and ezetimibe (BA+EZ) is in prosecution worldwide.

What is the business focus of Esperion?

Esperion is passionately committed to developing and commercializing complementary, oral therapies for patients and physicians globally that could potentially significantly reduce elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in patients with hypercholesterolemia inadequately treated with current lipid-modifying therapies. Bempedoic acid, Esperion-discovered and developed, brings a targeted mechanism of action to the space that could potentially address unmet medical needs in a way that is “patient-friendly, physician-friendly, and payer-friendly”.
