Lisa Conte, President and CEO of Jaguar Animal Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAGX) (“Jaguar”), an animal health company focused on developing and commercializing first-in-class gastrointestinal products for companion and production animals, foals, and high-value horses, and the interim CEO of Napo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Napo”), a human health company developing and commercializing novel gastrointestinal prescription products from plants used traditionally in rainforest areas, will participate in the invitation-only Monaco Growth Forums Ltd. (“MGF”) roadshow and conference, the Monaco Growth Forums Spring Edition, April 24th at the Mondrian Hotel in London, England, and from April 25th-26th at The Metropole Hotel in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Jaguar is engaged in the development of a pipeline of prescription drug product candidates and non-prescription products to address unmet needs in animal health. Jaguar’s pipeline currently includes prescription drug product candidates for nine indications across multiple species, including the treatment of acute diarrhea in dogs and cats, and non-prescription products targeting seven species including adult horses, dairy calves, piglets, and other farm/production animals.
Napo’s proprietary, patented gastrointestinal compound, crofelemer, is a first-in-class anti-secretory agent. Napo launched Mytesi™ (crofelemer 125mg delayed-release tablets), a human drug approved by the FDA for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adults with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy, in October 2016.
Crofelemer is also the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Canalevia™, Jaguar’s lead prescription drug product candidate for companion animals, which is being evaluated for treatment of acute diarrhea and chemo-therapy induced diarrhea (“CID”) in dogs and is the subject of a recently forged collaboration between Jaguar and Elanco US Inc., a subsidiary of Eli Lilly and Company. Jaguar expects to conduct the commercial launch of Canalevia™ for the CID indication in the next year.
“I look forward to presenting at this event to familiarize investors with Jaguar and Napo and our shared mission to change the standard of care for gastrointestinal disease around the world. Mytesi™ has great depth of pipeline with multiple anticipated follow-up indications, most of which are supported by Phase 2 clinical testing. And the Jaguar portfolio also brings great breadth of pipeline, as we have executed on clinical development for diarrhea diseases in dogs, dairy calves, pigs, and foals, with more to come,” commented Conte.
As announced March 31, 2017, Jaguar and Napo have entered a definitive merger agreement.

Mytesi™ (crofelemer 125mg delayed-release tablets) is an antidiarrheal indicated for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adult patients with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy (ART). Mytesi™ is not indicated for the treatment of infectious diarrhea. Rule out infectious etiologies of diarrhea before starting Mytesi™. If infectious etiologies are not considered, there is a risk that patients with infectious etiologies will not receive the appropriate therapy and their disease may worsen. In clinical studies, the most common adverse reactions occurring at a rate greater than placebo were upper respiratory tract infection (5.7%), bronchitis (3.9%), cough (3.5%), flatulence (3.1%), and increased bilirubin (3.1%).
