Annamycin Recap & Status • Annamycin is a “Next Generation” anthracycline designed to be non-cardiotoxic and avoid multidrug resistance • Although impressive activity was shown in prior acute leukemia trials, developer did not properly close out or establish an appropriate RP2D • Moleculin is repeating Phase 1/2 both in US and EU • US (MB-104) and EU (MB-105) trials have begun treating patients; already showing significant activity in dose escalation phase • Repeat of prior results should afford Annamycin an accelerated approval pathway as a 2nd line induction therapy for R/R AML • Recent animal research shows ability of Annamycin to accumulate preferentially in the lungs, liver and pancreas and substantial activity has been demonstrated in metastases to the lungs 27


 
WP1066 (Immune / Transcription Modulators) Based On Natural Built from chemical backbone of propolis (caffeic acid STAT3 is Activated by Multiple Upstream Compound benzyl ester) Effectors Unique Dual Action First-in-class drug to both directly inhibit tumor signaling (p-STAT3, HIF-1⍺, c-Myc) while also stimulating patient immune response (Tregs) Activity Against Hardest-to-Treat Pre-clinical testing shows high level of activity against Cancers pancreatic cancer, metastatic melanoma, glioblastoma and others; yet very low potential for toxicity Independently Subject of numerous peer reviewed journals validating Validated findings across multiple institutions around the world 28


 
STAT3 is a Master Regulator of Tumor Progression Triggering oncogenic transcription activity: • Survival Activated STAT3 • Proliferation Resulting in tumor (p-STAT3) binds to • Inflammation growth and DNA • Invasion metastasis • Metastasis • Angiogenesis • Immunosuppression 29


 
WP1066 Affects Tumors Directly & Indirectly WP1066 WP1066 modulates transcription factors resulting in direct tumor cytotoxicity while also Immune Transcription stimulating a natural Modulation Modulation immune response by reducing Regulatory T-cells (Tregs) Tumor 30


 
WP1066 & WP1220 Recap & Status • WP1066 is a small molecule that inhibits p-STAT3 by accelerating proteasomal degradation (not by blocking phosphorylation) without respect to upstream signaling; WP1220 is an analog of WP1066 formulated for topical delivery; WP1066 also inhibits HIF1-α, c-Myc and Tregs • WP1066 is currently in Phase 1 trial at MD Anderson for GBM and melanoma metastasized to the brain (WP1066 crosses BBB); in 3rd cohort of dose ranging; planned surgical expansion • Oral administration (due to lack of solubility) is demonstrating bioavailability in patients; recently began IND-enabling work on WP1732, a fully water soluble analog of WP1066 that does not cross BBB, and shows impressive accumulation in pancreas • WP1220 is nearing completion of a fully recruited proof of concept trial for the topical treatment of CTCL • Recent research suggests WP1066 has the ability to (a) counteract resistance to checkpoint blockade therapy (specifically, immune checkpoint target PD-L1) and (b) induce immune reprogramming in immune-competent mice treated with both radiation and WP1066 (mice developed an immunological memory that prevented regrowth of GBM tumor after tumor cells were reintroduced, resulting in long-term survivors; note: mice with a compromised immune system did not show this effect) 31


 
WP1122 (Metabolism/Glycosylation Inhibitor) Addicted to Sugar A brain tumor requires as much as 18 to 37 times as much Tumors are hyper-consumers glucose to survive as a healthy brain cell of glucose and can be starved to death without it Starving a Tumor to This eventually led to the theory that, if we feed tumor cells Death a glucose decoy (one that can’t convert into energy), we can kill the tumor This works well in a laboratory setting, but the problem is making these decoys drugable Breakthrough WP1122 is a prodrug of 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) that increases design half-life, enables transmission across the blood brain barrier and improves other drug-like properties Tumor cell Potential to Change WP1122 (at suboptimal doses) performs as well or better Standard than temozolomide in live human brain tumors; even better of Care performance by combining the two drugs was shown in trials Normal cell 32


 
WP1122 is Effective In Vivo against Gliomas July 2017 WP1122 used alone has the same or greater activity than temozolomide (Temodar®), a current standard of care in patients diagnosed with glioblastoma Control Temodar WP1122 10 • Human brain tumors 8 injected into mice • WP1122 performed as 6 well or better than 4 temazolomide # of Animals of # • Not shown is that a 2 Orthotopic combination of both 0 Glioblastoma performed even better 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 Model in Mice Days 33


 
WP1122 Shows In Vivo Activity Against Pancreatic Cancer January 2018 34


 
WP1122 Recap & Status • WP1122 is a prodrug of 2-DG that increases circulation time and ability to cross BBB and provides other drug-like properties • Utilizing Warburg principle, WP1122 converts to 2-DG in highly glycolytic tumor cells causing autophagy due to energy starvation • Evaluating oral versus IV administration and about to begin IND-enabling work • Recent published literature suggests that 2-DG may also enable deglycosylation of PD-L1 (see abstract in following slide) • WP1234 is an analog of WP1122 with improved organ distribution to the pancreas 35

Partnerships & Collaborations The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Moleculin actively sponsors ongoing research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. MD Anderson is the largest cancer research center in the world and one of the country’s largest recipients of NIH medical research grants. Dr. Waldemar Priebe, a Professor of Medicinal Chemistry in the Department of Experimental Therapeutics, Division of Cancer Medicine at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discovered the molecules that form the basis for our lead drug candidates. MD Anderson has granted Moleculin royalty-bearing, worldwide, exclusive licenses for the patent and technology rights to all of Moleculin’s drug technologies and continues to collaborate with the Company to translate research discoveries into clinical therapies. Emory University Moleculin entered into an agreement with Emory University to enable expanded cancer research on Moleculin’s WP1066 molecule for the possible treatment of medulloblastoma, a pediatric malignant primary brain tumor. Physician-scientists at Emory University and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have requested support to continue research aimed at the development of a novel treatment of medulloblastoma using WP1066 and Moleculin has agreed to supply them with a pure form of WP1066 for preclinical testing for the potential treatment of medulloblastoma. Emory studies so far have indicated that medulloblastoma may be particularly vulnerable to the ability of WP1066 to block the activated form of STAT3, a key signaling protein believed to contribute to the growth and survival of many tumors, including medulloblastoma. Mayo Clinic Research Endeavor Moleculin entered into an agreement with a physician at the Mayo Clinic to enable additional research on Moleculin’s WP1066 molecule for the possible treatment of a rare form of pediatric brain tumor. Mayo Clinic physician-scientists have requested and Moleculin has agreed to supply them with WP1066 for preclinical testing for the potential treatment of pediatric Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPG), a rare and very aggressive form of brain tumor. Mayo Clinic studies have suggested that DIPG may be particularly sensitive to the inhibition of the activated form of a cell-signaling protein called STAT3, a primary target of WP1066, and their preliminary studies have demonstrated significant anti-tumor activity of WP1066 in DIPG in vitro and in vivo tumor models. The University of Iowa Moleculin entered into an agreement with The University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals for the development of a formulation for WP1732, a new molecule for cancer treatment. Based on preclinical testing, WP1732 is believed to be a breakthrough discovery and represents a major expansion of its STAT3 inhibition capability by providing a highly soluble alternative that is ideally suited for IV administration. This agreement marks the beginning of creating a preclinical package to submit to the FDA in order to request Investigational New Drug status. 43
