BETHESDA, Md., May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Biotherapeutics (OTC Bulletin Board: NWBO) announced today that its Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Marnix Bosch, will give a presentation on "Autologous Dendritic Cells for Glioblastoma" on Saturday, on May 21, at 1:45 pm at the 14th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Cell and Gene Therapy in Seattle, WA.  Dr. Bosch's talk will take place in rooms 615-617 at the Washington State Convention Center.


Dr. Bosch will provide an update on NWBT's DCVax® -L therapeutic cancer vaccine for Glioblastoma multiforme ("GBM"), the most lethal form of brain cancer.  DCVax® -L is in a Phase II, randomized, double blinded, placebo controlled clinical trial at multiple institutions.  The trial is designed and powered at a level comparable to a pivotal study.  Dr. Bosch's presentation will discuss the striking long-term follow-up data from prior trials, the design of this ongoing Phase II trial, and plans for further clinical development of DCVax®-L for brain cancer. The update will include discussion of the lack of toxicity, ease of administration, and other characteristics of the product and its clinical implementation that will make it suitable for widespread adoption in the medical community.
