Medivation Presents Positive New Data on Dimebon's Long-Term Efficacy and Novel Mechanism of Action at the International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease
Date:7/30/2008

presentation at ICAD 2008, Medivation presented new data on Dimebon's novel mitochondrial mechanism of action. Mitochondria generate energy for cells and play important roles in mediating cell function and survival. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked in the published literature to both Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases. Preclinical data presented showed that Dimebon improves mitochondrial function in the setting of cellular stress with very high potency. For example, Dimebon treatment improved mitochondrial function and increased the number of surviving cells after treatment with a cell toxin known as ionomycin in a dose-dependent fashion. The effect of Dimebon to improve mitochondrial dysfunction has been confirmed in the independent laboratory of Maria Ankarcrona, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.

"All of the approved Alzheimer's disease drugs operate by one of two mechanisms -- cholinesterase inhibition or NMDA-receptor antagonism," noted Bengt Winblad, M.D., Ph.D., Head of the Karolinska Institutet's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. "The body of preclinical and clinical data generated thus far convinces me that Dimebon is exerting its effects through a different mechanism. The data presented today support the hypothesis that Dimebon improves mitochondrial dysfunction. This is a novel mechanism that may, in part, explain the clinical benefits seen in Alzheimer's patients treated with Dimebon."

About the Pivotal Study

Dimebon's first pivotal Alzheimer's trial was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 183 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. In this study, patients treated with Dimebon experienced statistically significant improvements compared to placebo in all the key aspects of the disease: memory and thinking, activities of daily living, behavior and overall function -- after both six months and a full year of treatment. Dimebon's benefit over placebo continued
