About Cerimon Pharmaceuticals

Cerimon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing therapeutic products for autoimmune diseases, inflammation and pain. Cerimon believes these new treatment options will enable physicians specialized in treating these conditions to further improve the lives of their patients.

Cerimon currently has two drugs in development. Simulect(R) (basiliximab)entered a Phase IIb study for moderate-to-severe steroid-refractory ulcerative colitis in the first quarter of 2007, and the Company has initiated a Phase I study of a topical patch formulation of diclofenac sodium. This study will rapidly be followed by late-stage efficacy and safety studies in patients with acute musculoskeletal pain.

Cerimon is well financed, having closed a $70 million Series A financing in late 2005 with the premier investors MPM, Nomura Phase4 Ventures, and OrbiMed Advisors.
