The Company’s pipeline includes product candidates to address unmet medical needs in hyperkinetic movement disorders, such as chorea (abnormal involuntary movements) associated with Huntington’s disease, an orphan disease, and tardive dyskinesia and Tourette syndrome, subsets of either of which may be deemed to be orphan diseases, as well as other orphan indications. Auspex is headquartered in La Jolla, California.
