    About Acasti Pharma Inc.

    Acasti Pharma is developing a product portfolio of proprietary novel
long-chain omega-3 phospholipids. Phospholipids are the major component
of cell membranes and are essential for all vital cell processes. They
are one of the principal constituents of High Density Lipoprotein (good
cholesterol) and, as such, play an important role in modulating
cholesterol efflux. Acasti Pharma's proprietary novel phospholipids carry
and functionalize the polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA,
which have been shown to have substantial health benefits and which are
stabilized by potent antioxidants. Acasti Pharma is focusing initially on
treatments for chronic cardiovascular and cardiometabolic conditions
within the over-the-counter, medical food and prescription drug markets.
