Synergy Pharmaceuticals Inc.
Synergy Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel gastrointestinal (GI) therapies. Since the company’s inception in 2008, we have pioneered discovery, research and development efforts around uroguanylin analogs for the treatment of functional GI disorders and inflammatory bowel disease. Our proprietary GI platform is based on uroguanylin, a naturally occurring human GI peptide, and includes two lead product candidates – plecanatide and dolcanatide. Plecanatide is our first uroguanylin analog currently being evaluated for use as a once-daily tablet for chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) and irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). Dolcanatide is our second uroguanylin analog currently being explored for ulcerative colitis.
We are based in New York City, with research and commercial offices in suburban Philadelphia. Synergy [SGYP] became a public company in July 2008 and has been listed on NASDAQ since December 2011.
