About BELLUS Health (www.bellushealth.com)

BELLUS Health is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of chronic cough and other hypersensitization-related disorders. The Company's lead product candidate, BLU-5937, is being developed for the treatment of chronic cough. BLU-5937, a highly selective P2X3 antagonist, has the potential to be a best-in-class therapeutic for chronic cough patients who do not respond to current therapies. In addition to chronic cough, BLU-5937 may potentially have clinical benefit in other afferent hypersensitization-related disorders, such as visceral pain, hypertension, and migraine, among others. BELLUS Health is currently conducting pre-clinical studies in additional undisclosed indications.

Chronic cough is classified as a cough lasting more than eight weeks and is associated with significant adverse physical, social and psychosocial effects on health and quality-of-life. More than 26 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic cough. Of these patients, more than 2.6 million have unexplained or refractory chronic cough lasting for more than a year. There are currently no approved treatments for refractory chronic cough, creating a significant unmet medical need.
