RedHill Biopharma Receives Notice of Allowance for a New U.S. Patent Covering its Combination Therapy for Hard-to-Treat Cancers

TEL-AVIV, Israel / RALEIGH, NC, September 18, 2017 RedHill Biopharma Ltd. (NASDAQ: RDHL) (Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange: RDHL) ("RedHill" or the "Company"), a specialty biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on late clinical-stage development and commercialization of proprietary, orally-administered, small molecule drugs for gastrointestinal and inflammatory diseases and cancer, today announced that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a new patent covering the use of two of RedHill's Phase II-stage proprietary investigational compounds, YELIVA(R) and MESUPRON in combination with a known antibiotic.

Upon issuance, on top of existing intellectual property protection covering the individual compounds, the new patent will provide RedHill with intellectual property protection covering its combination for the potential treatment of cancer, prevention of cancer recurrence or progression and inhibition of growth and proliferation of cancer cells.

Danielle Abramson, Ph.D., RedHill's VP of Intellectual Property and Research, stated: "We are very pleased with the allowance of this key patent, covering the combination of our proprietary, first-in-class, orally-administered Phase II-stage drug candidates, YELIVA(R) and MESUPRON, both of which are new chemical entities, with a known antibiotic. As part of our oncology program, RedHill is currently evaluating the new combination therapy across several oncology indications with limited treatment options where strong unmet medical need exists."
