BETHESDA, Md., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Biotherapeutics (NASDAQ: NWBO) (NW Bio), a biotechnology company developing DCVax® personalized immune therapies for solid tumor cancers, announced today that it will use its exhibit at this year's American Society Of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting in Chicago to highlight its leadership role in immune therapy. 


The ASCO annual meeting is the pre-eminent conference focused on clinical treatment of cancer, with attendance of more than 25,000 oncologists and other medical professionals from across the US and all over the world.  The 49th annual meeting of ASCO will be held at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago from May 31 to June 4, 2013.
