Clinical Data Reported on Vidaza in Hematologic Malignancies and,Advanced Solid Tumors

3rd Annual Meeting

CHICAGO, Ill., June 2, 2007 - Pharmion Corporation (NASDAQ: PHRM) today reported data from a pilot study that demonstrated the bioavailability of the Company's oral dosage formulation of Azacitidine. These data were presented at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago. (June 1-5, 2007). Pharmion's epigenetic anti-cancer products, which include Vidaza(r) (azacitidine for injection), MCGD0103 and oral Azacitidine, are being investigated in the treatment of hematologic malignancies and solid tumors and are the subject of poster and oral presentations at the Meeting.

An oral dosage formulation of Azacitidine would provide a more desirable and convenient route of administration for patients and clinical staff and eliminate injection-site reactions. In addition, it would enable the evaluation of a low-dose regimen that could maximize demethylation and gene re-expression, as well as the evaluation of long-term or maintenance therapy.

The study was designed to assess the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of escalating single doses of orally administered Azacitidine in patients with Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS), acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or other solid tumors. A total of four patients were enrolled and received study drug. One patient received a 60 mg dose and three patients received a single 80 mg dose. In each case, Azacitidine was well-tolerated and quantifiable in plasma. Following an 80mg dose the bioavailability of the oral formulation of Azacitidine was 18 percent relative to subcutaneous (SC) administered Vidaza. Having established that acceptable plasma concentrations of azacitidine can be achieved with single oral dosing, this pilot study has concluded. A multi-dose escalating study of oral azacitidine is now underway.

"Oral azacitidine represents an extremely exciting opportunity," said Dr. Guillermo Garcia-Manero, Associate Professor of Medicine and Chief,
