Date:11/6/2007

ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EntreMed, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases, today reported results for the three and nine-month periods ending September 30, 2007.

Revenues for the third quarter 2007 were approximately $3,520,000 versus $3,023,000 for the comparable period a year ago. The Company reported a net loss for the third quarter of approximately ($3.0 million), or ($0.04) per share. This compares with a net loss of approximately ($3.5 million), or ($0.05) per share for the same period last year.

Revenues for the nine months ending September 30, 2007 were approximately $3,520,000 versus $3,023,000 for 2006. Reported net loss for the first nine months of 2007 was ($18.6 million), or ($0.23) per share as compared to ($44.3 million) or ($0.63) per share for 2006. The 2006 nine-month net loss includes a non-cash charge of $29.5 million resulting from the acquisition of Miikana Therapeutics in January 2006. Excluding the non-cash charge, the Company's net loss for the first nine months of 2006 was ($14.8 million). As of September 30, 2007, EntreMed had cash and short-term investments of approximately $50.6 million.

Dane R. Saglio, EntreMed Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Royalty revenues recorded in the third quarter 2007 represent an increase over the same period last year as we continue to benefit from the increase in sales of Celgene's Thalomid(R). As a result of additional programs heading towards clinical development in 2008, we expect research and development expenses to trend up in the fourth quarter and into 2008. With the completion of the recent secured financing, we are reporting over $50 million in cash and short-term investments, an amount that will fund planned operations into 2009."

James S. Burns, EntreMed President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our progress for the first nine months of 2007 is consistent with both our guidance and my expectations. We continue to make progress with both our clinical and preclinical programs and are on track to achieve the remainder of our 2007 milestones. We are also continuing to build our oncology drug development expertise through selective additions to the management team. Last month we announced the addition of Dr. Kenneth W. Bair as Senior Vice President, Research and Development. Building a focused pipeline of multi-mechanism drug candidates with an experienced team to manage their development remain primary goals for the Company."

As previously announced, Mr. Burns will give a corporate overview today during the Rodman & Renshaw 9th Annual Healthcare Conference. Mr. Burns' presentation is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. (ET) this morning and will be web cast. To access the live presentation, visit the Company's web site at http://www.entremed.com. An archive of the presentation will be available on the web site for approximately 90 days.
