-- SGI-1776, our lead pre-clinical PIM kinase inhibitor, was found to
cause tumor regression in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) xenograft
models (Abstract No. 4974). In an oral presentation entitled, "A
potent small molecule PIM kinase inhibitor with activity in cell
lines from hematological and solid malignancies," Dr. Steven Warner,
SuperGen's Manager, Discovery Biology, detailed how scientists used
the Company's CLIMB(TM) technology to build a model that allowed for
the creation of small molecule PIM kinase inhibitors. SGI-1776 was
identified as a potent and selective inhibitor of the PIM kinases,
inducing apoptosis and cell cycle arrest, thereby causing a
reduction in phospho-BAD levels and enhancement of mTOR inhibit
