Date:1/28/2008

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Cylene Pharmaceuticals has appointed Dr. Kenna Anderes to its management team. Dr. Anderes, who brings 17 years of life sciences research experience with a focus on cancer biology research, will serve as Vice President of Cancer Biology. With Cylene's most advanced compound, quarfloxin (CX-3543), now in Phase II development, Dr. Anderes will be leading Cylene's biology and pre-clinical research teams to advance other targeted small molecule oncology compounds into the clinic during 2008.

"I am excited about the opportunity to advance more of Cylene's novel drug candidates into the clinic," said Dr. Anderes. "These compounds are orally available and have the potential to become effective and convenient therapeutics for cancers that currently lack effective, patient-friendly treatments."

Dr. Anderes joined Cylene from Pfizer, Inc., where she had led large project teams in oncology and cancer biology research over the past twelve years. Prior to her tenure at Pfizer, Dr. Anderes held several group leader and senior scientist positions at major biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, such as Warner Lambert and Agouron.

"Dr. Anderes has the ideal background and experience to accelerate and expand our product pipeline," said Dr. William G. Rice, Cylene's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Her expertise in cancer biomarkers and imaging, as well as her leadership experience in pharmaceutical research, will enable her to make meaningful contributions to our management team."

Dr. Anderes earned a Ph.D. in pharmacology from the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, and she performed a postdoctoral research fellowship in pharmacology at the University of California San Diego.
