New Pixantrone Data Presented at Meetings at American Society of Hematology Conference
Date:12/6/2010

SEATTLE, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. ("the Company") (Nasdaq and MTA: CTIC) today announced new pixantrone end of study ("EOS") follow up results from the Company's pivotal phase III PIX301 trial, which results form the basis for the Company's recent Marketing Authorization Application (the "MAA") currently under review by the European Medicines Agency ("EMA").

The end-of-study results showed continued improvement in the trial's primary and secondary endpoints with increased statistical confidence around the endpoint results. At EOS, CR/CRu (Complete Response ("CR")/Complete Response unconfirmed) rate increased to 24% in the pixantrone arm compared to 7% among comparator recipients (p=0.009) while ORR (Overall Response Rate) increased to 40% versus 14% for comparator recipients (p=0.001). The median duration of CR/CRu was 9.6 months for the pixantrone group compared to 4.0 months for the comparator group. Pixantrone patients experienced a 40% reduction in the risk of death or progression over the two year study observation and follow up period compared to standard chemotherapy (p=0.005, HR=0.60) and a 21% reduction in the overall risk for dying (p= 0.25, HR =0.79).  The most common grade 3, 4 adverse event observed on the pixantrone arm was neutropenia in 41.2% of patients versus 19.4% on the comparator arm. However, the incidence of serious infections was comparable between arms. Deaths due to an adverse event were identical between both arms; there were more LVEF reductions in pixantrone arm, however only two were grade 3 and all were asymptomatic. The results were presented by Principal Investigator, Ruth Pettengell, M.D. of St. George's Hospital, University of London, the lead investigator for the phase III PIX301 EXTEND trial. "The end of study results strengthen the confidence and stability across the primary and secondary measures of efficacy," noted Dr. Pettengell.  "The magnitude of complete and durable
