About EpiCept Corporation

EpiCept is focused on the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical
products for the treatment of pain and cancer. The Company's pain portfolio
includes AmiKet™, a prescription topical analgesic cream in late-stage
clinical development designed to provide effective long-term relief of pain
associated with peripheral neuropathies. The Company's product Ceplene^®, when
used concomitantly with low-dose IL-2 is intended as remission maintenance

and certain Pacific Rim countries and a portion of its remaining Ceplene^®
inventory to Meda AB in June 2012. Ceplene^® is licensed to MegaPharm Ltd. to
market and sell in Israel and EpiCept has retained its rights to Ceplene^® in
all other countries, including countries in North and South America. The
Company has other oncology drug candidates in clinical development that were
discovered using in-house technology and have been shown to act as vascular
disruption agents in a variety of solid tumors. For more information, visit
