Update on Preclinical Finding and Development Timeline for PCI-45292
Date:3/2/2011

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmacyclics, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCYC) today announced that further advancement of PCI-45292, a Btk inhibitor with exceptionally potent anti-arthritis activity in mice and rats, has been suspended following results from the current set of preclinical toxicology studies.  The company hopes to have a new clinical development candidate identified within approximately 6 months.

PCI-45292 has been under preclinical development for approximately 1 year as a potential new agent for the treatment of immune mediated diseases. A recent evaluation of tissues from animals dosed with PCI-45292 has revealed an undesirable target-organ effect.  The effect, which was noted at all dose levels in a rat animal model, but absent in another animal model, precludes establishing a starting dose for human clinical trials.

The undesired effect observed with PCI-45292 has not been observed with our Btk Inhibitor PCI-32765 even at higher dose levels in preclinical safety studies and is not considered to be related to the inhibition of Btk.  Our broad clinical development for PCI-32765 in B-cell malignancies in particular in chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma continues as outlined in our last quarterly update.

We have readily identified the portion of the PCI-45292 molecule directly responsible for these target organ changes. We have now turned our attention to evaluating a related series of molecules with the focus on eliminating the target-organ effect.  Our commitment to advancing a safe and effective Btk inhibitor into the clinic for immune mediated diseases remains strong.

"While we are disappointed with the delay of the program we are pleased with the quality of the research that was able to identify this effect early in development, allowing us to make adjust
