Preclinical Efficacy Data Demonstrate Ability of Tengion's Neo-Bladder Augment to Restore Bladder Function
Date:10/29/2007

Findings Presented at American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference &

Exhibition

SAN FRANCISCO and EAST NORRITON, Pa., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Tengion, Inc., a leader in regenerative medicine, announced today that findings from a preclinical study being presented today at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference and Exhibition demonstrate the ability of the Tengion Neo-Bladder Augment(TM) to restore bladder function in a well- established preclinical model of a bladder augmentation cystoplasty. These data were among the key findings that served as the basis for the company's 2006 Investigational New Drug (IND) submission with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its autologous Neo-Bladder.

"We believe these data demonstrate that the Tengion Neo-Bladder Augment is safe, effective and enables the body to truly regenerate new cells and tissues. In this well-established pre-clinical model, only the Neo-Bladder Augment group was able to achieve functional recovery and a regenerative response that emulated the native bladder," said Tim Bertram, D.V.M., Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Science and Technology of Tengion. "These Tengion data join previous academic research of the autologous Neo-Bladder construct in pediatric patients -- published in The Lancet in April 2006 -- to create a compelling foundation for the promise and potential of Tengion's pipeline of regenerative medicine products. Tengion currently has two Phase 2 clinical trials ongoing evaluating the Neo-Bladder Augment: one in pediatric patients with neurogenic bladder due to spina bifida, and the other in adult patients with neurogenic bladder due to spinal cord injuries."

The purpose of the preclinical study described at AAP was to examine the structural and functional aspects of bladder regeneration in a well- established preclinical model. To do so, Tengion's Neo-Bladder Augment composed of a biodegradable scaffol
