Jacobus Pharmaceutical Company Inc., Box 5290, Princeton 08543. 609-921-7447. David Jacobus, president.

Jacobus Pharmaceutical Inc., a Schalks Crossing Road-based biotech company, and its drug, Ruzurgi, are the subject of a lawsuit by Florida-based drugmaker Catalyst Pharmaceuticals against the FDA. Catalyst is suing the regulatory authority in an attempt to overturn its approval of Ruzurgi, which is a lower cost rival to Catalyst’s Firdapse.

Both drugs are for treating Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome, a rare condition in which the body’s immune system attacks muscles. The FDA approved Ruzurgi for children, while Firdapse is approved for adults. Jacobus, a small, family-run company, is pricing its treatment at $175,200 a year, whereas Catalyst charges $375,000 a year, a price that drew public criticism from senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
