Date:10/16/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medivation, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDVN) today announced that it will receive a Corporate Achievement Award from the Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA), which honors those companies that exemplify leadership in the fight against Huntington's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. David Hung, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Medivation, will accept the award during the 12th Annual Guthrie Awards Dinner on Thursday, October 16, at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

"We are honored to be recognized by the HDSA for our efforts to develop a treatment for Huntington's disease. We are committed to bringing Dimebon to market so patients can gain access to a drug that could truly improve how they, and their families, live with this terrible debilitating disease," said Dr. Hung. "We are encouraged by our Phase 2 trial findings, which, we believe, showed Dimebon to be the first investigational drug to demonstrate a significant benefit in any measure of cognitive function in patients with mild-to-moderate Huntington's disease in a well-controlled study."

Medivation is developing Dimebon, an orally available small molecule, to treat patients with mild-to-moderate Huntington's disease. The Company recently announced that it plans to continue further development of the drug with its new development partner Pfizer based on positive results seen in a Phase 2 trial. In addition, Medivation is evaluating Dimebon in a pivotal and confirmatory Phase 3 trial in patients with Alzheimer's disease.
