About ADS-5102
ADS-5102 is a high dose amantadine, taken once daily at bedtime, in development for the treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) in people with Parkinson's disease. A New Drug Application (NDA) supporting ADS-5102 for the treatment of LID in people with Parkinson's disease is under review by the FDA, with a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date of August 24, 2017. If approved, ADS-5102 will be the first and only FDA-approved medicine indicated for the treatment of LID in people with Parkinson's disease. Adamas is also investigating ADS-5102 for the treatment of walking impairment in people with multiple sclerosis and is considering developing it for other indications earlier in the Parkinson's disease treatment journey.


About Parkinson's Disease and Levodopa-induced Dyskinesia
Parkinson's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder affecting close to 1 million people in the United States. It is characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons, causing lower levels of endogenous dopamine and manifesting as symptoms of bradykinesia (slowness of movement), rigidity, impaired walking, tremor and postural instability.

Levodopa, which replaces lost dopamine, is the most effective therapy for all stages of Parkinson's disease and is considered the "gold standard" therapy. Over time, patients require increasingly higher or more frequent doses of levodopa in order to avoid the recurrent periods of OFF time when the underlying symptoms of Parkinson’s disease return. As Parkinson’s disease progresses, nearly all patients on levodopa therapy will also experience LID, which is characterized by involuntary movements that are non-rhythmic, purposeless and unpredictable. These patients often experience multiple fluctuating periods of OFF time and LID during any given day, which can impede their movement and daily function. In the United States, approximately 150,000 to 200,000 Parkinson’s patients suffer from LID.
About Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Adamas develops new medicines to improve the daily lives of those affected by chronic neurologic disorders, including Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. Adamas has pioneered a platform to develop medicines, called chrono-synchronous therapies, for chronic neurologic disorders based on an understanding of the time-dependent biologic processes responsible for disease activity and drug response to potentially achieve symptomatic relief without tolerability issues. The company's most advanced product candidate, ADS-5102, is in development for levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) in patients with Parkinson's disease and walking impairment. An NDA supporting ADS-5102 for the treatment of LID in patients with Parkinson's disease is under review by the FDA, with a PDUFA date of August 24, 2017. Adamas is exploring other indications for ADS-5102 for further development. Adamas is also investigating ADS-4101 for the treatment of partial onset seizures in patients with epilepsy. Additionally, Adamas’ licensed assets, NAMENDA XR® and NAMZARIC®, are currently marketed by Allergan, and Adamas is eligible to receive royalties on sales of these medicines beginning in June 2018 and May 2020, respectively.
