Date:12/9/2007

First Drug Regimen Shown to Prevent AML Relapse

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EpiCept Corporation (Nasdaq and OMX Nordic Exchange: EPCT) today released new clinical data that demonstrate a durable improvement in leukemia-free survival (LFS) over five years among Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) patients who receive post-consolidation immunotherapy with Ceplene(TM) (histamine dihydrochloride) in conjunction with low dose interleukin-2 (IL-2). These data were presented on December 9th at the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in Atlanta.

Ceplene is EpiCept's registration stage product candidate for the remission, maintenance and prevention of relapse of patients with AML in first remission, and is currently under late stage review by the European Medicines Evaluation Agency (EMEA).

"These important findings add to the growing body of evidence demonstrating that the combination of Ceplene and low-dose IL-2 is the first drug regimen capable of prolonging leukemia-free survival and preventing relapse among AML patients in first remission," remarked Jack Talley, President and CEO of EpiCept. "While the Phase III study of Ceplene was powered to show a leukemia-free survival benefit over 36 months, these additional data provide confirmation of a lasting leukemia-free benefit for at least five years. We are continuing to work closely with regulators in Europe on our Marketing Authorization Application for Ceplene and remain on track to receive a final decision by the European Commission during the first half of 2008."

Mats L. Brune, MD, Medical Director of the Bone Marrow Transplant Program at the University of Goteborg delivered the findings in a poster presentation entitled, "Post-consolidation Immunotherapy with Histamine Dihydro
