Atossa Genetics Overview Atossa Genetics, Inc. 1616 Eastlake Ave, Seattle, WA 98102 4

 

 

Atossa Genetics: • Clinical - stage • Novel drugs & delivery methods • Breast Cancer & other breast conditions • Headquartered in Seattle, WA 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 5

 

 

Endoxifen 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 6

 

 

Endoxifen • Most active metabolite of tamoxifen • Tamoxifen has been widely studied • Tamoxifen was first approved in 1977 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 7 Tamoxifen Metabolites, including Endoxifen

 

 

Current Paradigm for Tamoxifen Use in US 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 8 1 million breast cancer patients take oral tamoxifen for at least five years 10 million patients with a high risk of breast cancer are indicated for chemoprevention with oral tamoxifen Source: Freedman AN, Graubard BI, Rao SR, McCaskill - Stevens W, Ballard - Barbash R, Gail MH.

Unmet Medical Needs Are >$1B Markets 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 9 500,000 breast cancer patients don’t benefit from tamoxifen because of metabolism problems 9.9 million high risk patients won’t take oral tamoxifen because of actual or the risk of systemic side effects Source: Freedman AN, Graubard BI, Rao SR, McCaskill - Stevens W, Ballard - Barbash R, Gail MH.

Emerging Unmet Medical Need • Breast Density – Independent risk for breast cancer – Patients required to be notified in 30 states – No approved treatment • Tamoxifen reduces breast density 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 10

 

 

Mandatory Patient Notification of BD 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 11 PINK : Enacted Law — RED: Introduced Bill — BLUE: Working on Bill — WHITE: No Action — BLACK : Insurance Coverage Law From: AreYouDense.org

 

 

Why Endoxifen? • Address unmet medical needs for: – Providing a topical alternative to oral tamoxifen for reducing breast density – Enh ancing the chemoprevention properties of tamoxifen in those patients who are refractory • Extensive characterization of tamoxifen, the parent drug 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 12

Pharmacokinetic Objective 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 30 Formulation placed on skin surface Endoxifen absorbed into breast tissue to bind to ER and retard growth Breast blood vessels connect to systemic circulation taking “excess” endoxifen into systemic circulation Goal was to prove absorption with measurable blood levels that are low enough to limit systemic exposure

 

 

Endoxifen was detected in blood 107 Spring St. Seattle WA 98104 31 11 7 2 0 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 10 mg 6 mg 2 mg Placebo Blood Level > 2.0 ng/mL N umber of Samples

 

 

Preliminary Study Conclusions • All primary and secondary endpoints successfully met – Safety: There were no clinically significant safety signals and no clinically significant adverse events in participants receiving topical Endoxifen . – Tolerability: Topical Endoxifen was well tolerated at each dose level and for the dosing duration utilized in the study . – Pharmacokinetics: Topical Endoxifen crossed the skin barrier when applied daily to the breast, as demonstrated by low but measurable Endoxifen blood levels detected in a dose - dependent fashion. • Therefore, the topical Endoxifen is suitable for continued development 107 Spring St. Seattle, WA 98104 32
