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). The Company initiated a randomized, placebo-controlled Phase II trial of Pracinostat in combination with Vidaza (azacitidine) in patients with previously untreated MDS in June 2013. An open-label Phase II trial of Pracinostat in combination with Vidaza in elderly patients with AML who are unsuitable for intensive chemotherapy is open for enrollment. MEI Pharma is also developing ME-344, a mitochondrial inhibitor derived from its isoflavone-based technology platform. Results from a first-in-human, single-agent clinical study of ME-344 in patients with refractory solid tumors were presented in October 2013. In September 2013, the Company further expanded its pipeline of drug candidates with the acquisition of PWT143, a highly selective PI3-kinase delta inhibitor.
