Addex Pharmaceuticals ( discovers and develops allosteric modulators for human health. Allosteric modulators are a different kind of orally available small molecule therapeutic agent, which we believe will offer a competitive advantage over classical drugs. Our lead allosteric modulator product, ADX10059, has achieved clinical proof of concept and is in Phase IIb testing in two indications. Phase IIb data for ADX10059 to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are expected in the fourth quarter of 2009. Phase IIb data for ADX10059 as a migraine prevention therapy in patients with frequent migraine are expected in the first quarter of 2010. ADX10059 is a first-in-class mGluR5 inhibitor, a therapeutic strategy that also is being pursued in multiple indications by large pharma competitors.

Our products and technology already have proven their value through our relationships with four of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies in the world. Specifically, under an agreement with Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, ADX71149, a positive allosteric modulator (PAM) of mGluR2 with potential for the treatment of schizophrenia and anxiety, is undergoing Phase I clinical testing. Under two separate agreements with Merck & Co., Inc., we are developing mGluR4 PAM and mGluR5 PAM as drugs to treat Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia, respectively. In addition, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche have made equity investments in Addex.
