Date:11/11/2008

New Data Suggest Potential Benefits of Targeted Tissue Cooling During

Prostate Surgery

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardium Therapeutics (Amex: CXM) and its operating unit InnerCool Therapies, Inc., today announced that it has developed a pelvic cooling catheter system called UroCool(TM), which is designed to induce localized cooling during surgery for prostate cancer (radical prostatectomy). The new technology is being applied in collaboration with renowned prostate surgeon, Thomas E. Ahlering, M.D., Professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Urology at the University of California, Irvine and is the subject of an exclusive licensing agreement with the University of California. A regulatory application for FDA 510(k) clearance of InnerCool's UroCool(TM) catheter is expected to be submitted in the first quarter of 2009.

Dr. Ahlering and his colleague Dr. David S. Finley are conducting clinical studies designed to demonstrate safety and confirm the potential benefits of localized cooling during robotic-assisted prostatectomy, which is now the most common surgical technique for prostate cancer. The UroCool(TM) catheter is designed to be placed within the rectal cavity adjacent to the prostate during surgery. UroCool is used in conjunction with InnerCool's Celsius Control Console which circulates cold saline in a closed loop within the catheter to allow for localized cooling. Drs. Ahlering and Finley believe that therapeutic cooling during prostate surgery (which includes both traditional open surgical approaches and the newe
