ONCOTHYREON TO HOLD TELECONFERENCE AT 5:00 PM EDT

SEATTLE, March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Oncothyreon Inc. (Nasdaq: ONTY) today announced that Merck Serono, a division of Merck KGaA of Darmstadt, Germany, and its U.S. affiliate, EMD Serono, Inc., have temporarily suspended the worldwide clinical development program for Stimuvax(R) (BLP25 liposomal vaccine). The suspension is the result of a suspected unexpected serious adverse reaction in a patient with multiple myeloma participating in an exploratory clinical trial. This decision was taken in alignment with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) clinical hold placed on the Investigational New Drug (IND) application for Stimuvax.

The suspension affects the Phase 3 clinical program for Stimuvax, including the START and INSPIRE trials in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and the STRIDE trial in breast cancer. Further recruitment of patients into all trials actively recruiting patients and ongoing treatment with Stimuvax in these trials are suspended.

"Patient safety is of paramount importance to Merck Serono and to Oncothyreon," said
