Rich Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Letter of Intent with Faculty of Medicine at Khon Kaen University to Conduct Acute Myelocytic Leukemia Clinical Trials
Date:3/24/2015

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rich Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: RCHA) ("Rich Pharmaceuticals" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing innovative therapies in oncology, with initial concentration in treating Acute Myelocytic Leukemia (AML) and Hodgkin's Lymphoma, announced that it has entered into a Letter of Intent with The Faculty of Medicine at Khon Kaen University, Thailand to conduct clinical trials using Rich's lead molecule, RP-323 in treating AML patients.

The Faculty of Medicine at Khon Kaen University has established itself as a center for world-class research. Presently, the Faculty has four Research Centers of Excellence and 23 Research Groups doing clinical research across numerous disease states with emphasis in conducting oncology clinical trials. For more information on the Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University see: http://www.md.kku.ac.th/en/. The commencement of the clinical studies is conditioned upon establishing a budget and timeline for the studies, and the execution of a definitive Clinical Study Agreement with the Faculty of Medicine at Khon Kaen University. The clinical studies are estimated to include 36 patients and 3 separate sites.

"As we move closer to beginning our AML clinical program, we are continuing to work diligently in securing additional principal investigators in the United States and finalizing our IND submission to the FDA," said Ben Chang, CEO of Rich Pharmaceuticals.

Rich Pharmaceuticals' RP-323 is a phorbol ester, which induces differentiation and/or apoptosis in multiple cell lines and primary cells, activates protein kinase C (PKC), and modulates the activity of multiple downstream cell signaling pathways, including mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways. TPA induces PKC to produce NF kappa, which produces NF kappa B that has the ability to regulate cellular responses by entering into the nucleus of cell. NF kappa B binds to DNA and changes the nature of the cell and (1) induces differentiation; (2) induces proliferation; (3) cytokine induction; (4) and/or apoptosis.

Acute myelocytic leukemia (AML), also known as acute myelogenous leukemia, is the most common acute leukemia type that affects adults. AML is an aggressive form of cancer of the blood and the bone marrow, characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal white blood cells. In the U.S., about 18,000 new cases of AML are diagnosed annually.
