About MEI Pharma

MEI Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: MEIP) is a San Diego-based oncology company focused on the clinical development of novel therapies for cancer. The Company's lead drug candidate is Pracinostat, a potential best-in-class, oral HDAC inhibitor being developed for advanced hematologic diseases, such as myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Results from a pilot Phase II clinical trial of Pracinostat in combination with Vidaza (azacitidine) in patients with MDS presented at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in December 2012 showed an overall response rate of 89% (eight out of nine). In June 2013, the Company initiated a randomized, placebo-controlled Phase II trial of Pracinostat in combination with Vidaza in patients with previously untreated MDS. An open-label Phase II trial of Pracinostat in combination with Vidaza in elderly patients with AML unsuitable for induction therapy is expected to initiate in the fall of 2013. In addition, MEI Pharma is developing two drug candidates derived from its isoflavone-based technology platform, ME-143 and ME-344. Results from a first-in-human Phase I trial of ME-344 in patients with solid refractory tumors are anticipated in October 2013. For more information, go to www.meipharma.com.
