Date:8/9/2011

EAST NORRITON, Pa., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tengion, Inc. (Nasdaq: TNGN) today provided a business update and reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

"This is an important time for Tengion as we continue to make progress on our lead clinical and preclinical programs, as well as on our corporate and partnership strategy," said David Scheer, chairman of the Tengion board of directors. "Our search for a new chief executive officer is underway and our dialogue with the FDA is ongoing as we continue to advance our Neo-Urinary Conduit clinical trial. We expect to provide more updates in the near term as we execute on our overall strategy."

Neo-Urinary Conduit Bladder Cancer Trial – Clinical UpdateTengion is currently conducting an initial clinical trial of its lead product candidate, the Neo-Urinary Conduit™, for use in bladder cancer patients requiring a urinary diversion following bladder removal (cystectomy).  The Neo-Urinary Conduit is a combination of a patient's own cells and bioabsorbable scaffold that is intended to catalyze regeneration of a native bladder tissue conduit, passively transporting urine from the ureters through a stoma, or hole in the abdomen, into a standard ostomy bag.  Patients requiring some form of urinary diversion with today's standard of care, the use of a segment of bowel tissue to construct a conduit for urine to exit from the body into an ostomy bag, are at risk of complications associated with the use of bowel tissue as well as those associated with the surgery to harvest the bowel tissue.

The trial is designed to assess the safety and preliminary efficacy of the Neo-Urinary Conduit, as well as to allow the clinical investigators to optimize the surgical procedure and post-surgical care by incorporating the outcomes observed in each patient into the surgical approach f
