ALLERGAN AND ACADIA PHARMACEUTICALS ESTABLISH A


RESEARCH COLLABORATION


Drug Discovery Efforts to Focus on Novel Receptor Targets


Irvine, California, and San Diego, California, September 24, 1997 - Allergan, Inc. (NYSE: AGN) and ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (formerly Receptor Technologies) announced today that they will work jointly and exclusively on discovery efforts on five potential drug targets, including the prostanoid and alpha adrenergic receptors.


Allergan will have exclusive development and commercialization rights to all therapeutic uses, with the exception that ACADIA will retain development rights to at least one therapeutic indication for each target. Additionally, the companies will identify novel receptors in tissues associated with areas of therapeutic interest to Allergan. Allergan will make a $6 million equity investment in ACADIA resulting in a 12.5 percent ownership position, on a fully diluted basis. ACADIA will receive research funding for three years, as well as milestone payments up to $12.5 million for the first product developed for each receptor target. Upon commercialization, Allergan will pay ACADIA royalties on product sales.

"We are very pleased with the productive relationship we have developed with ACADIA and the significant progress we have made together," commented Lester J. Kaplan, Ph.D., Allergan Corporate Vice President of Science and Technology. "Over the past three years, Allergan and ACADIA have worked together to develop and implement a functional high-throughput screening technology with six types of alpha adrenergic receptors and have also worked with ACADIA to develop and utilize their basic enabling technology for our prostaglandin assets. As a result, we have successfully identified and characterized potent receptor-selective compounds with reduced side effects that may be useful in therapeutic areas such as glaucoma, anesthesia, analgesia, muscle spasticity and neuroprotection. The expansion of our collaboration will allow us to continue to build upon the success we have enjoyed to date."



"For the past several years, ACADIA and Allergan have collaborated using ACADIA's proprietary Receptor Selection and Amplification Technology (R-SAT ? ) for functional assay of recombinant targets. R-SAT ? enables the sensitive, quantitative, and rapid analysis of receptor activity, which makes the technology a powerful tool to measure the effects of potential drug candidates and other bioactive compounds," stated Mark R. Brann, Ph.D., founder, President, and Chief Scientific Officer of ACADIA. "This agreement validates our technology and highlights the spectacular success of our collaboration. R-SAT ? is now a proven drug discovery technology. R-SAT ? gives us the tools for sorting through the massive numbers of genes and compounds that have been identified through genomics and combinatorial chemistry. With Allergan, we will now aggressively put these tools to practice in several drug discovery programs."
