Delivery of gene-therapy for heart disease boosted 100-fold; now in 100-patient trial
Date:5/16/2012

for the treatment of patients with myocardial ischemia and stable angina pectoris. These patients have atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, and the Company's Generx product candidate is intended to stimulate the growth of new or additional collateral blood vessels to bypass blockages.

These studies were conducted at Emory University School of Medicine, led by Jakob Vinten-Johnasen, PhD., and co-sponsored by a Small Business Innovative Research grant from the National Institutes of Health (Cardium Therapeutics) and the Carlyle Fraser Heart Center (Emory). At the conference Gabor M. Rubanyi, MD, PhD, Cardium's Chief Scientific Officer, will present the late-breaking poster entitled "Transient Ischemia is Necessary for Efficient Adenovector Gene Transfer in the Heart", on May 17, 2012 from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. in Exhibit Hall A. The poster presentation can be viewed at http://www.cardiumthx.com/pdf/Generx-ASGCT-Poster-Presentation-May-2012.pdf.

In addition, Dr. Rubanyi will also make an oral presentation titled: "New Perspectives for Angiogenic Gene Therapy to Treat Myocardial Ischemia in Patients with Coronary Disease" to attendees at the ASGCT Meeting today, May 16. The presentation will provide a historical overview of the Generx clinical development program and how these new and important preclinical findings have been incorporated into the protocol for the 100-patient Generx ASPIRE Phase 3 registration study which was recently initiated in the Russian Federation for patients with myocardial ischemia and stable angina pectoris. The presentation is now available for viewing at http://www.cardiumthx.com/pdf/Generx-ASGCT-May-2012-Rubanyi.pdf.
