About Stemline Therapeutics, Inc.

Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel oncology compounds that target cancer stem cells (CSCs) and tumor bulk. Stemline is currently developing two clinically active compounds, both of which have demonstrated durable complete responses (CRs) and an overall survival (OS) benefit in Phase I/II studies. SL-401 has completed a multicenter Phase I/II trial in patients with advanced acute myeloid leukemia (AML) where it has demonstrated single agent activity, including two durable CRs and an OS benefit, in heavily pretreated patients. In addition, SL-401 was well-tolerated and was not toxic to the bone marrow. SL-401 is being advanced into later stage trials in advanced AML. SL-401 is also currently being tested in additional indications including chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). The Company's second clinical program, SL-701, has demonstrated single agent activity including durable tumor responses, which includes CRs, multiple partial responses and an OS benefit, in Phase I/II trials of adult patients with refractory or recurrent high grade glioma and pediatric patients with malignant glioma. SL-701 is now poised for later stage trials in pediatric and adult patients with advanced brain cancer. Stemline is also developing a broad portfolio of preclinical small molecules and antibodies for a variety of solid and hematological cancer types. Many of these compounds have derived from the Company's proprietary discovery platform, StemScreen®. For more information, please visit the Company's website at www.stemline.com.
