Cardium Announces New Orthobiologics Product Initiative Extending Gene Activated Matrix Technology to Deliver Bone Growth Factors
Date:7/30/2009

SAN DIEGO, July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardium Therapeutics (NYSE Amex: CXM) today announced plans to develop a DNA-based orthobiologics product portfolio based on research and development by Cardium's Tissue Repair Company that will initially focus on non-union bone fractures for medically-compromised patients, and spinal fusion for patients with degenerative disc disease. Orthobiologics is a rapidly growing segment of the orthopedics market and represents biologically-active products designed to enhance musculo-skeletal repair and regeneration.

Following on results observed with Tissue Repair's Excellarate(TM) product candidate, which is targeted to the repair of soft tissues (particularly diabetic ulcers), the Company's orthobiologics initiative will build on and extend the underlying technology that has been developed by the Tissue Repair Company to hard tissue applications such as bone, including: (1) proprietary Gene Activated Matrix(TM) or GAM(TM) delivery and ligand targeting; (2) use of GAM to locally produce proteins capable of stimulating bone and other tissue growth; and (3) a substantial body of pre-clinical research and development supporting the use of GAM to deliver bone growth factors. Cardium believes that future DNA-based products offer the potential to provide patients and healthcare systems with more cost-effective alternatives to current and planned protein-based therapeutics.

Cardium's initial orthobiologics focus will be on the development of Osteorate
