EpiCept Reports Regulatory Progress on Ceplene(TM)
Date:9/17/2007

se-free survival of AML patients by more than 50%. Importantly, this significant therapeutic benefit was achieved with a remarkably well-tolerated, self-administered immunotherapy."

EpiCept's MAA submission for Ceplene is being assessed under the EU centralized procedure, and if approved, will provide a marketing authorization valid in all EU member states, along with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The European Commission has previously granted orphan drug status to Ceplene for use in the treatment of AML. If the application for Ceplene continues to follow usual EU regulatory timelines, the next milestone on Ceplene's path to approval is expected to be the CHMP Day 180 list of outstanding issues, which EpiCept expects will be received in the fourth quarter of 2007. EpiCept expects this to be followed by a recommendation regarding approvability from the CHMP and a final decision by the European Commission during the first half of 2008.

Laboratory research has demonstrated that Ceplene reduces formation of oxygen radicals from phagocytes, inhibiting NADPH oxidase and protecting IL-2-activated NK-cells and T-cells.

About Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

AML is the most common form of acute leukemia in adults. There are approximately 47,000 AML patients in the EU, with 14,000 new cases occurring each year.

Although approximately 75% of patients achieve a complete remission, the leukemia frequently recurs (a "relapse"), usually within 1-2 years. Despite follow-up treatment that may include very toxic chemotherapy or bone marrow transplantation, only 10% to 20% of patients survive l
