Targacept, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of NNR Therapeutics to treat patients suffering from serious nervous system and gastrointestinal or genitourinary diseases and disorders. The Company's NNR Therapeutics target a class of receptors known as neuronal nicotinic receptors, which it refers to as NNRs, which are found on nerve cells throughout the nervous system and serve as key regulators of nervous system activity. The Company's clinical-stage NNR product candidates include TC-6499, a small molecule that modulates the activity of the a3�4 and other NNRs as an agonist; TC-6683, a small molecule that modulates the activity of the a4�2 NNR; TC-5619 and TC-6987,small molecules that are selective for the a7 NNR; TC-1734 (also referred as AZD3480), a wholly owned small molecule that modulates the activity of the a4�2 NNR, and TC-5214, which acts as an antagonist on the a3�4 NNR.
