About Medivation

Medivation, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the rapid development of novel small molecule drugs to treat serious diseases for which there are limited treatment options. Medivation aims to transform the treatment of these diseases and offer hope to critically ill patients and their caregivers. In September 2008, Medivation announced a global agreement with Pfizer, Inc to develop and commercialize dimebon (latrepirdine) for the treatment of Alzheimer's and Huntington diseases. With Pfizer, Medivation is conducting a clinical development program that includes CONCERT, a Phase 3 trial assessing dimebon in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease, and HORIZON, a Phase 3 trial of dimebon in Huntington disease. In October 2009, Medivation entered into a global agreement with Astellas Pharma Inc. to develop and commercialize MDV3100 for both early- and late-stage prostate cancer. The first Phase 3 clinical trial in the MDV3100 development program, known as the AFFIRM trial, is under way in patients with advanced metastatic prostate cancer who have previously been treated with docetaxel-based chemotherapy. Additional trials in earlier-stage prostate cancer will begin in 2010. For more information, please visit us at www.medivation.com.
