Medivation Announces Participation in Acumen BioFin Rodman & Renshaw 9th Annual Healthcare Conference
Date:10/31/2007

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medivation, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDVN) today announced that David Hung, M.D., president and chief executive officer, will present at the Acumen BioFin Rodman & Renshaw 9th Annual Healthcare Conference on Tuesday, November 6, at 11:15 a.m. Eastern Time at the New York Palace Hotel.

Dr. Hung will provide an overview of Medivation and its clinical development programs for Dimebon(TM) for Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases and MDV3100 for prostate cancer.

The Company reported results from its Phase 2 efficacy study of Dimebon in Alzheimer's disease in June 2007, showing that Dimebon improved the clinical course of patients by demonstrating meaningful improvement over placebo in each of the five disease aspects most important to patients, caregivers and physicians -- memory, thinking, activities of daily living, behavior and overall function. Significant gains in these disease aspects were evident as early as the twelfth week of treatment. After six months of treatment, patients were significantly better off than they were at the start of therapy on all key aspects of the disease. Dimebon's overall benefit compared to placebo continued to increase over time and was greater at 12 months that at six months.

A live audio webcast of the presentation will be available on the "Events and Presentations" page of the "Investor Relations" section of the Company's website at http://www.medivation.com. A replay also will be available for 30 days following the live presentation.
