CEO comments

The PLIANT study is fully recruited and all 126 patients have been included in
part II. We expect to deliver top line results by the end of the first quarter

We have during the year worked on a new project with expected great commercial
potential based on the proprietary PLED-platform. Project PP-100 aims at
reducing or preventing severe liver damage as a result of acetaminophen
overdosing, one of the most common poisonings. Because the compound in the
PP-100 project is based on the same platform as PledOx, existing safety
documentation can be used and the company believes that the project can go
directly from preclinical stage to a Phase II study in patients.

About Pledpharma
PledPharma is a Swedish pharmaceutical company developing novel therapies for
life-threatening diseases. Our initial goal is to develop a drug, PledOx®,
which reduces the serious side effects associated with chemotherapy. Project
PP-099 is based on limiting the damage that occurs to the myocardium in
patients suffering from acute myocardial infarction. In project PP-100, the
most recent addition, the ability of PledPharma compound (PP100-01A) to reduce
or prevent acute liver failure as a result of acetaminophen poisoning will be
evaluated. We have the potential to provide patients with valuable and unique
treatments for severe, life-threatening diseases where there is also an
opportunity for faster registration process in the United States through
breakthrough therapy designation. The current market for prevention of
chemotherapy-induced side-effect is about US$ 10 billion. PledPharma (STO:
PLED) is listed on NASDAQ OMX First North. Erik Penser Aktiebolag is Certified
Adviser. For more information, see
