MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: RXII), a biotechnology company developing RNAi-based immunotherapies to treat cancer, today announced that it received a notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market that the closing bid price of the Company's common stock has been at $1.00 per share or greater for ten consecutive days. Accordingly, the Company has regained compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) and this matter is now closed.
As previously reported, the Company received notification from NASDAQ stating that it was not in compliance with the NASDAQ Stock Market's minimum bid price requirements because the bid price of the Company's common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days.

About RXi Pharmaceuticals
RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: RXII) is a biotechnology company developing RNAi-based immunotherapies to treat cancer. Building on the pioneering discovery of RNAi, scientists at RXi have harnessed the naturally occurring RNAi process which can be used to "silence" or down-regulate the expression of a specific gene that may be overexpressed in a disease condition. RXi developed a robust RNAi therapeutic platform, including self-delivering RNA (sd-rxRNA®) compounds, that have the ability to highly selectively block the expression of any target in the genome, thus providing applicability to many therapeutic areas. Our development programs include cell-based immunotherapies to treat cancer with a near-term focus on using adoptive cell therapy (ACT). RXi's extensive patent portfolio provides for multiple product and business development opportunities across a broad spectrum of therapeutic areas, and we actively pursue research collaborations, partnering and out-licensing opportunities with academia and pharmaceutical companies.
