Date:11/8/2011

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Saladax Biomedical, Inc., a privately held company developing and commercializing novel diagnostic assays to achieve the promise of personalized medicine for new and existing therapeutics, announced today that Li Zhang, M.D., has been appointed to the company's scientific advisory board (SAB).

Dr. Zhang is a professor of medical oncology and deputy director of the Lung Cancer Research Centre of Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU), chief of the department of medical oncology at the Sun-Yat Sen University Cancer Centre (SYSUCC) and associate director of the National Anti-Cancer Drug Clinical Research Centre at SYSUCC in Guangzhou, China.  Dr. Zhang's research is focused on developing molecular, prognostic and therapeutic approaches to improve the care for patients with colorectal, lung and head and neck cancers.  He is also actively involved in research focused on supportive treatment for cancer-induced anaemia (CIA) and treatment of bone metastases with bisphosphonate. 

"Dr. Zhang's extensive experience in oncology and his leadership within the Chinese medical community will be invaluable to Saladax as the company targets new indications and markets MyCare," said Edward L. Erickson, president and CEO of Saladax.  "In particular, Dr. Zhang's expertise will be critical as we continue development of MyCare for paclitaxel and docetaxel, two widely used chemotherapy drugs for breast, lung and ovarian cancers."

Dr. Zhang has been extensively involved in numerous Phase I/II studies of novel agents and international Phase III trials, either as a principle investigator and/or steering committee member.  He has also published more than 90 clinical papers in top-tier journals and is an editorial board member of the Chinese Journal of Clinical Oncology, Chinese Journal of Cancer, Asia-Pacific Journal of Clinical Oncology, Chinese Journal of Tuberculosis, Respiratory Diseases and the Chinese version of the Journal of Clinical Oncology. 

"I'm excited to be a part of Saladax's vision of providing more personalized care to patients through its MyCare platform," said Dr. Zhang.  "Saladax's technology offers patients a means of achieving optimal efficacy, while at the same time minimizing the toxicity associated with traditional chemotherapy."

Dr. Zhang earned his medical degree from the Medical School of SYSU and his board certification as a physician of medical oncology in 1986.  He continued with his post-graduate training at the CCSYSU.  He currently holds leadership positions in numerous professional societies and cooperative groups, including The Association of Rehabilitation and Palliative Care (CACA), The Cancer Chemotherapy Association and Lung Cancer Association of the Guangdong Province.  He is also a standing committee member of the Chinese Society of Clinical Oncology (CSCO).
