TORONTO, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Bradmer Pharmaceuticals Inc., a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development and commercialization of cancer therapies, announced today that Dr. Alan M. Ezrin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, will present a corporate update at Rodman & Renshaw 10th Annual Healthcare Conference, which is being held in New York City from November 10th - 12th at the New York Palace Hotel. Dr. Ezrin will provide an update on the Company's ongoing GLASS-ART(TM) Trial, a Phase III study evaluating Neuradiab(TM) as an adjunct therapy to the current standard of care for newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). The presentation will take place on Wednesday, November 12th at 10:45am ET in the Kennedy I Room and Dr. Ezrin will be available for questions following his presentation.

About the GLASS-ART Trial (http://www.glassarttrial.com)

The Phase III GLASS-ART Trial derives its name from its description: GBM Locoregional Agent Survival Study - Antitenascin Radiolabeled antibody Therapy Trial. The study is designed to determine the survival benefit derived from, and safety of, adding Neuradiab to the current standard of care therapy, consisting of surgery, radiation and adjuvant chemotherapy (temozolomide), for patients diagnosed with primary glioblastoma multiforme. The randomized trial was initiated in July 2008 and will enroll up to 760 patients at leading treatment centers across the United States. Additional information on the trial can be found at http://www.glassarttrial.com or at http://www.clinicaltrials.gov and then by searching the term "Bradmer" or the study identifier NCT00615186.

About Neuradiab(TM)

Neuradiab is a monoclonal antibody, conjugated to radioactive iodine, used to treat glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common and most advanced form of brain cancer. Neuradiab delivers tumor-killing radiation specifically to residual brain tumor cells after surgery, with minimal impact on normal brain tissue. During the course of development at Duke University, over US$60 million in research grants and related support has produced a series of Phase I and Phase II clinical trials on Neuradiab and other closely related technologies. Approximately 200 brain cancer patients, including over 160 with GBM, have been treated with the Neuradiab therapy regimen, and survival benefits have significantly exceeded historical controls in each completed trial. Neuradiab has been formerly referred to in literature as 131-I anti-tenascin monoclonal antibody 81c6.

Each year up to 30,000 new cases of GBM are diagnosed in the world's seven largest healthcare markets. GBM tumors typically have infiltrating edges that are very difficult to completely remove with surgery. The Neuradiab therapy is delivered directly into the surgical resection cavity in a separate procedure after the initial surgery. Neuradiab delivers a concentrated level of radiation specifically to the remaining cancer cells by targeting tenascin. Tenascin is a protein over-expressed in 99% of GBM cells but absent from normal brain cells.
