Tengion Announces Addition of Two Renal Experts to Research & Development Advisors Panel
Date:3/23/2011

National Kidney Foundation Young Investigator Award and the American Society of Nephrology Gottschalk Research Scholar Award. He investigates kidney repair in order to translate this knowledge into therapies for patients with kidney disease.

The Neo-Kidney Augment is Tengion's lead preclinical program and is intended to prevent or delay the need for dialysis or kidney transplant by increasing functional kidney mass in patients with advanced chronic kidney disease, a significant unmet medical need. Tengion has now published or presented consistently positive data on the effect of its approach on kidney function in four different animal models of chronic kidney disease, including in a canine model of kidney failure. By the end of 2011, Tengion intends to seek an initial regulatory interaction with FDA for the Neo-Kidney Augment program to clarify the path to clinical trials.

About Tengion

Tengion, a clinical-stage biotechnology company, has pioneered the Organ Regeneration Platform™ that enables the Company to create proprietary product candidates that are intended to harness the intrinsic regenerative pathways of the body to produce a range of native-like organs and tissues. Tengion's product candidates seek to eliminate the need to utilize other tissues of the body for a purpose to which they are poorly suited, procure donor organs or administer anti-rejection medications. An initial clinical trial is ongoing for the Company's lead product candidate, the Neo-Urinary Conduit™, an autologous implant that is intended to catalyze regeneration of native-like bladder tissue for bladder cancer patients requiring a urinary diversion following bladder removal.  The Company's lead preclinical program is the Neo-Kidney Augment™, which is designed to delay or prevent the need for dialysis or transplantation in patients at risk for kidney failure.  Tengion has also applied its technology in two Phase II clinical trial
