RXi Pharmaceuticals’ Common Stock To Commence Trading Under The Symbol “RXII”

RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTCBB: RXII.OB) announced today that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc., also known as FINRA, has approved RXi Pharmaceuticals’ common stock for trading under the stock symbol “RXII” on the OTC Bulletin Board. RXi Pharmaceuticals anticipates its stock will be eligible for trading commencing today, May 10, 2012.

The listing of RXi Pharmaceuticals’ stock marks the completion of its spin-off into an independent, publicly-traded company from former parent Galena Biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:GALE). The spin-off transaction was previously announced by Galena in September 2011, and, on April 26, 2012, Galena paid a dividend of one share of RXi Pharmaceuticals common stock for each outstanding share of Galena common stock.

“We are pleased to announce the public listing of our common stock and the completion of our spin-off into an independent company,” commented Geert Cauwenbergh, Dr. Med. Sc., newly appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of RXi Pharmaceuticals. “With our increased focus as an independent company, we intend to work hard to create value for our shareholders through the advancement of RXi’s robust platform.”

World Trade Financial Corporation is acting as the initial market maker for the trading of RXi Pharmaceuticals’ common stock. World Trade Financial Corporation can be contacted at (619) 325-2620 or at www.worldtradefinancial.com.

About RXi Pharmaceuticals

RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTCBB: RXII.OB) is a biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative therapies based on its proprietary, next-generation RNAi platform. Therapeutics that use RNA interference, or “RNAi,” have great promise because of their ability to “silence,” or down-regulate, the expression of a specific gene that may be overexpressed in a disease condition. Building on the pioneering work of scientific founder and Nobel Laureate Dr. Craig Mello, RXi’s first RNAi product candidate, RXI-109, which targets CTGF (connective tissue growth factor), is scheduled to commence human clinical trials for scar prevention in 2012.
