ABOUT LP352

LP352 is an oral, centrally acting, 5-HT2C superagonist in development for the potential treatment of seizures associated with DEEs such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, Dravet syndrome, SCN2A-related epilepsies, CDKL5 deficiency disorder, and other epileptic disorders. LP352 is designed to modulate GABA and, as a result, suppress the central hyperexcitability that is characteristic of seizures. LP352 has no detected activity at the 5-HT2B and 5-HT2A receptor subtypes. 5-HT2B and 5-HT2A receptor agonism have been associated with significant adverse side effects. LP352 has novel chemistry and attributes. It was designed to be more specific and selective for the 5-HT2C receptor subtype, giving it the potential to reduce seizures in patients with DEEs while overcoming the known or perceived safety limitations of available drugs in the 5-HT2 class. LP352 is currently being evaluated in a Ph 1b/2a clinical trial (the PACIFIC Study) in participants with DEEs, with data expected around year-end 2023, as well as in additional supportive studies.

ABOUT LONGBOARD PHARMACEUTICALS

Longboard Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel, transformative medicines for neurological diseases. Longboard is working to advance a portfolio of centrally acting product candidates designed to be highly selective for specific G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Longboard’s small molecule product candidates are based on more than 20 years of GPCR research. Longboard is evaluating LP352, an oral, centrally acting 5-hydroxytryptamine 2C (5-HT2C) receptor superagonist, with no detectable activity on 5-HT2B and 5-HT2A receptor subtypes, in development for the potential treatment of seizures associated with a broad range of Developmental and Epileptic Encephalopathies. Longboard is also evaluating LP659, an oral, centrally acting, sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptor subtypes 1 and 5 modulator, which is in development for the potential treatment of multiple neurological diseases.
