Dimebon

61st American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting, April 25 - May 2, Seattle

About MDV3100

MDV3100 is a novel small-molecule androgen receptor antagonist drug candidate in development for the treatment of castration-resistant (also known as hormone-refractory) prostate cancer (CRPC). MDV3100 has completed enrollment in a Phase 1-2 study and is expected to enter Phase 3 development this year in patients with CRPC who have failed docetaxel-based chemotherapy.

MDV3100 has a novel mechanism of action unlike that of the leading anti-androgen therapy used to treat CRPC. This mechanism potentially explains why MDV3100 has demonstrated beneficial effects in patients whose tumors are no longer responding to the currently available treatments for prostate cancer, including bicalutamide.

About Dimebon

Dimebon is an investigational compound currently in Phase 3 development for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in clinical development for Huntington's disease (HD).

In preclinical models of AD and HD explored thus far, Dimebon has been shown to inhibit brain cell death, potentially by stabilizing and improving mitochondrial function in a way that prevents neuron death and dysfunction. The Dimebon mechanism is thought to be distinct from currently available AD medications.
