"We are pleased to partner with Idis so that physicians outside the United States can prescribe Korlym," said Steven Lo, Corcept's Vice President of Commercial Operations. "We are dedicated to meeting the needs of patients worldwide. Our partnership with Idis will help us make sure that every Cushing's syndrome patient who could benefit from Korlym will have access to the medicine."

About Cushings Syndrome
Endogenous Cushing's syndrome is caused by prolonged exposure of the body's tissues to high levels of the hormone cortisol and is generated by tumors that produce cortisol or ACTH. Cushing's syndrome is an orphan indication that most commonly affects adults aged 20 to 50. Symptoms vary, but most people have one or more of the following manifestations: high blood sugar, diabetes, high blood pressure, upper body obesity, rounded face, increased fat around the neck, thinning arms and legs, severe fatigue and weak muscles. Irritability, anxiety, cognitive disturbances and depression are also common. Cushing's syndrome can affect every organ system in the body and can be fatal if not treated effectively.
