Kos Pharmaceuticals

About Kos

Kos Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Kos" or the "Company") – named after the Greek island where Hippocrates founded the science of medicine – is a fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company engaged in the development of proprietary prescription pharmaceutical products, principally for treatment of cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic diseases. The Company’s principal product development strategy is to reformulate existing pharmaceutical products with large market potential to improve safety, effectiveness and patient compliance.

The Company is concentrating on the cardiovascular and respiratory markets because of their extraordinary size and growth, because physician prescribing patterns in these markets are importantly influenced by an identifiable group of physicians that can be addressed by our relatively small specialty sales force, and because of management's extensive experience with these markets.

KOS currently markets two proprietary innovative drugs for the treatment of cholesterol disorders and one for asthma.

Niaspan -- NIASPAN® is the only prescription extended-release form of niacin

Advicor --cholesterol medication

Azmacort -- Inhalation Aerosol is indicated in the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy


Pipeline for Kos

Currently, three other NDA projects are in development.

KS 01-019 -- The first product, scheduled for launch in 2007, is a dual component therapy for dyslipidemia that is expected to be more effective in lowering LDL-C than Advicor.

KS 01-018 -- Periperhal Arterial Disease (PAD)

Azmacort -- Inhalation Aerosol is indicated in the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy
