About Satsuma Pharmaceuticals

Satsuma Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing STS101 as an important and differentiated therapeutic option for the acute treatment of migraine.  STS101 is a novel and proprietary investigational drug-device combination product specifically designed to enable intranasal administration of the anti-migraine drug, dihydroergotamine (DHE), with a pharmacokinetic profile optimized to provide consistent and robust clinical efficacy.  In developing STS101, Satsuma has applied proprietary nasal drug delivery, dry-powder formulation, and engineered drug particle technologies to create a compact, simple-to-use, self-administered, and non-injectable DHE product.  The Company believes STS101 will be an attractive migraine treatment option for many patients and may enable a larger number of migraine sufferers to realize the long-recognized therapeutic benefits of DHE therapy.  STS101 has undergone extensive pre-clinical optimization and recently completed a Phase 1 clinical trial.  Satsuma plans to initiate a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 clinical trial in the third quarter of 2019 to evaluate the efficacy and safety of STS101 as an acute treatment for migraine.

Satsuma is headquartered in South San Francisco, California with operations in both California and Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.  For further information, please visit www.satsumarx.com.
