About MEI Pharma

MEI Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: MEIP) is a San Diego-based oncology company focused
on the clinical development of novel therapies for cancer. The Company's lead
drug candidate is Pracinostat, a potential best-in-class, oral HDAC inhibitor
currently being developed for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid
leukemia (AML). Results from a pilot Phase II clinical trial of Pracinostat in
combination with Vidaza^® (azacitidine) in patients with advanced MDS showed
an overall response rate of 90% (nine of 10). Data from three ongoing Phase II
clinical trials of Pracinostat are expected by the end of 2014. MEI Pharma is
also developing ME-344, a mitochondrial inhibitor that has shown preliminary
evidence of single-agent activity in a first-in-human clinical study in
patients with refractory solid tumors, including eight of 21 evaluable
patients (38%) who achieved stable disease or better. In September 2013, the
Company further expanded its pipeline of drug candidates with the acquisition
of PWT143, a highly selective PI3-kinase delta inhibitor. For more
