About Micromet, Inc. (http://www.micromet-inc.com)

Micromet, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focusing on the development of novel, proprietary antibody-based products for cancer, inflammation and autoimmune diseases. Three product candidates are currently in clinical trials. MT103, also known as MEDI-538, is the first product candidate based on Micromet's novel BiTE(R) antibody product development platform and is being evaluated in a phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of patients with non- Hodgkin's lymphoma. The BiTE antibody product development platform is based on a unique, antibody-based class of drugs that leverages the cytotoxic potential of T cells in the treatment of cancer. T cells are the most powerful 'killer cells' of the human immune system. Micromet has established a collaboration with MedImmune, Inc. for MT103/MEDI-538. The second clinical stage product candidate is adecatumumab, also known as MT201, a recombinant human monoclonal antibody which targets EpCAM expressing tumors. Adecatumumab is being developed for the treatment of patients with breast cancer. A phase 2a clinical trial in this indication has been completed and a phase 1b trial evaluating the safety and tolerability of MT201 in combination with docetaxel is currently ongoing in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Our third clinical stage product candidate is D93, also known as TRC093, a first-in- class humanized monoclonal antibody that inhibits angiogenesis and tumor cell growth by binding cleaved collagen. This product candidate is in phase 1 clinical trials and is being developed by TRACON Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of patients with cancer and age-related macular degeneration pursuant to license agreement under which Micromet has granted TRACON the worldwide rights to develop and commercialize D93/TRC093. In addition, Micromet has established a collaboration with Nycomed for the development and commercialization of MT203, Micromet's human antibody neutralizing the activity of granulocyte/macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF), which has potential applications in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, as well as autoimmune diseases.
