Martinsried/Munich, April 19, 2010. The biotech company MediGene AG (Frankfurt,
Prime Standard, TecDAX) today announces that the Company's new Chief Financial
Officer Arnd Christ, whose appointment was announced in March, will succeed Dr.
Thomas Klaue on April 19, 2010, and Dr. Klaue has therefore resigned with
immediate effect. The appointment of Mr Christ was scheduled for May 11, 2010,
and the change has become possible earlier because he has been able to terminate
his previous employment as Chief Financial Officer at NovImmune AG in mid-April.

Prof. Dr. Ernst-Ludwig Winnacker, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of MediGene
AG, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Arnd Christ to MediGene as a
respected financial professional with many years of experience in the
biotechnology industry. His appointment successfully concludes the re-alignment
of MediGene's Executive Board with the company's strategic refocusing which
began in 2009. We remain confident in our ongoing drug development programs
which are progressing according to schedule, and we would like to invite our
shareholders to get a first-hand update of the company's progress at the
upcoming annual shareholders meeting."
