About Stemline Therapeutics, Inc.

Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel oncology therapeutics that target both cancer stem cells (CSCs) as well as the tumor bulk. Among Stemline's drug candidates are SL-401 and SL-701, both of which have demonstrated single agent clinical activity in Phase I/II studies of advanced cancer patients. In a multicenter Phase I/II trial in patients with advanced acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), SL-401 demonstrated single agent activity, including durable complete responses (CRs), and an overall survival (OS) improvement relative to historical data in the most heavily pretreated AML patients. In addition, SL-401 was well-tolerated and was not toxic to the bone marrow. SL-401 is being advanced into later stage trials in advanced AML. The Company's second clinical stage therapeutic, SL-701, has demonstrated single agent activity including durable CRs and partial responses (PRs), as well as an OS benefit compared with historical data in Phase I/II trials of adult patients with refractory or recurrent glioblastoma and pediatric patients with malignant glioma. SL-701 is now poised for later stage trials in pediatric and adult patients with advanced brain cancer. Stemline is also developing a broad portfolio of preclinical small molecules and antibodies for a variety of solid and hematological cancer types. Many of these compounds have derived from the Company's proprietary discovery platform, StemScreen®. For more information, please visit the Company's website at www.stemline.com.
