About the Tengion Neo-Bladder Augment(TM)

Tengion's most advanced regenerative medicine program is the autologous Tengion Neo-Bladder Augment. There are currently 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 Neo-Bladder Augments for both Phase 2 clinical trials are being developed at Tengion's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility using cells taken from a small biopsy of each patient's bladder. Each Neo-Bladder Augment consists of a biodegradable scaffold seeded with cells cultured by Tengion scientists from the patient's own (i.e., autologous) healthy cells. A surgeon implants the Neo-Bladder Augment in the patient's body, where it is designed to harness the body's inherent regenerative capabilities resulting in a regenerated bladder with improved functionality.

About Tengion

Tengion Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company, is a leader in developing autologous neo-organs and tissues, such as bladders, that are derived from the patient's own (autologous) cells. Tengion's proprietary approach to regenerative medicine has the potential to enable people with organ and tissue failure to lead healthier lives without donor transplants or the side effects of current therapies. Headquartered in East Norriton, PA, Tengion also has research and pilot manufacturing facilities located in Winston-Salem, NC. For more information, visit Tengion online at: http://www.tengion.com.
