About RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation

RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTC: RXII) is a biotechnology company focused
on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative therapies based on
its proprietary, self delivering RNAi platform. Therapeutics that use RNA
interference, or “RNAi,” have great promise because of their ability to
down-regulate, the expression of a specific gene that may be over-expressed in
a disease condition. Building on the pioneering work of scientific founder and
Nobel Laureate Dr. Craig Mello, a member of the RXi Scientific Advisory Board,
RXi’s first RNAi product candidate, RXI-109, which targets CTGF, entered into
human clinical development in June 2012. For more information, please visit
