About Dimebon

Dimebon, the Company's lead product candidate, is an orally-available small molecule that has been shown to inhibit brain cell death in preclinical models relevant to Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease, making it a potential treatment for these and other neurodegenerative diseases. Based on the clinical and preclinical data generated to date, Medivation believes that Dimebon operates by a novel mechanism of action and may exert a neuroprotective effect in multiple areas of the central nervous system. Dimebon appears to block a new target that involves mitochondrial pores, which are believed to play a role in the cell death that is associated with neurodegenerative diseases and the aging process. Medivation is currently evaluating Dimebon in clinical trials in both Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases.

Six-month results from the Phase 2 efficacy study demonstrated that patients treated with Dimebon were significantly improved compared to patients taking placebo on all five efficacy endpoints studied, which assessed cognitive function, memory, ability to perform tasks of daily living, global function and behavior. Dimebon was well tolerated in the study.
