PROSTVAC(TM) Data Presented at the ASCO Meeting Demonstrates the Potential for Significant Increases in Life Expectancy in Late-Stage Prostate Cancer
Date:6/1/2009

Medical School, the principal investigator of the study, said: "There are few available treatments for advanced prostate cancer. To see this extent of improvement in overall survival is very encouraging. These phase II data with PROSTVAC(TM) warrant confirmation with a phase III study and when confirmed this product has the potential to fulfil an unmet medical need for these patients."

Anders Hedegaard, President & CEO of Bavarian Nordic said: "We are delighted that the data presented at the ASCO Annual Meeting confirms the excellent headline data with our prostate cancer vaccine candidate, PROSTVAC(TM), ready to start Phase 3 in 2010."

About PROSTVAC(TM)

PROSTVAC(TM) is a therapeutic vaccine moving into late stage clinical development that has the potential to extend the lives of people with advanced prostate cancer. Administered subcutaneously, it induces a specific, targeted immune response that attacks prostate cancer cells. Conventional chemotherapy currently used to treat prostate cancer has limited survival rates and is often associated with numerous side effects. In contrast, PROSTVAC(TM) has the potential to extend survival with improved quality of life. PROSTVAC(TM) is being developed in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Bavarian Nordic's U.S.-based subsidiary, BN ImmunoTherapeutics.

In clinical trials to date PROSTVAC(TM) and related PSA containing poxviral vaccines have been investigated and optimised in more than 500 patients for 10 years.
