Curis Cautionary Statement: This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding the Company’s timing for clinical trials of CUDC-101 and CUDC-907; Genentech and Roche's planned regulatory submissions for vismodegib; the potential favorable safety and efficacy profile of vismodegib; and the potential benefits of the Company’s internally developed drug candidates. Forward-looking statements used in this press release may contain the words "believes", "expects", "anticipates", "plans", "seeks", "estimates", "assumes", "will", "may," "could" or similar expressions. These forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from those indicated by such forward-looking statements including, among other things: The FDA may reject Genentech's NDA submission for vismodegib if it fails to meet the FDA’s filing requirements. Roche may not make a timely regulatory submission to the EMA, and the EMA may not accept any such submission if it fails to meet the EMA's filing requirements. Genentech and Roche may not demonstrate to the satisfaction of the FDA or any comparable foreign regulatory agency the safety and efficacy profile of vismodegib in the treatment of advanced BCC. Genentech and Roche may fail to meet applicable regulatory standards for approval of vismodegib in other indications. Even if vismodegib receives marketing authorization, its benefit/risk profile may not be widely accepted by the medical community or third party payors. Debiopharm may experience adverse results, delays and/or failures in its licensed development program. Curis may experience adverse results, delays and/or failures in its internal drug development programs. Curis may experience difficulties with: required regulatory approvals; maintaining necessary intellectual property protections; maintaining key collaborations; and obtaining the substantial additional funding required to conduct its business. Curis may experience unplanned cash requirements, and may not receive additional anticipated payments under its collaborations, any of which would shorten the estimated period in which Curis will have cash to fund its operations. Curis may also face other important risks relating to its business, operations, financial condition and future prospects generally that are discussed in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 and other filings that it periodically makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In addition, any forward-looking statements represent the views only as of today and should not be relied upon as representing Curis' views as of any subsequent date.
