CymaBay Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing breakthrough therapies to treat metabolic and rare diseases with high unmet need. Arhalofenate, the company's lead product candidate, has shown two therapeutic actions in a single drug in Phase 2a gout studies. In gout patients, arhalofenate is intended to prevent painful attacks in joints while at the same time promoting excretion of serum uric acid (sUA) by the kidney, thereby addressing both the signs and symptoms of gout and the hyperuricemia that is the root cause of the disease. The company has two other product candidates -- MBX-8025 and MBX-2982. MBX-8025 is a potent, selective, orally active PPAR-δ agonist. A Phase 2 study of MBX-8025 in patients with mixed dyslipidemia has established that it has an anti-atherogenic lipid profile that may be useful in the treatment of a wide variety of indications currently under evaluation. MBX-2982 is a GPR-119 agonist that has been shown to lower glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes.
