European Commission Designates MST-188 As An Orphan Medicinal Product
Date:3/25/2013

SAN DIEGO, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mast Therapeutics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MSTX) today announced that the European Commission (EC) has designated MST-188 as an orphan medicinal product for the treatment of sickle cell disease.  This decision follows a positive opinion adopted by the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) recommending such designation.

Mr. Culley continued: "Our recently announced plans to investigate MST-188 in acute limb ischemia, a complication of peripheral arterial disease, also may bolster our partnering efforts.  Indeed, we already have been approached by at least one pharmaceutical company that wished to discuss our near- and long-term plans in arterial disease, which we announced just three weeks ago."
