Jennerex Clinical Trial Data with JX-594 Selected for Plenary Session Presentation at Major International Conference
Date:6/2/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Jennerex, Inc. (San Francisco, CA and Ottawa, Canada), announced today that David H. Kirn, M.D., President & CEO delivered a plenary session presentation on Friday, May 30, 2008 entitled "Clinical Proof-of-Concept with JX-594, a Novel Targeted Multi-Mechanistic Oncolytic Poxvirus, in Patients with Refractory Liver Tumors" at the American Society of Gene Therapy (ASGT) Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. This abstract was selected for presentation in the plenary session from over 1,000 abstracts submitted to the conference. The ASGT Meeting is the premier annual international conference covering advancements in viral and genetic therapies for cancer.

In addition, Dr. John C. Bell, Chief Scientific Officer, delivered a presentation at the same conference, on Thursday, May 29, 2008, entitled "Oncolytic Virus Therapies of Cancer." In a third presentation by Jennerex R and D leaders, Dr. Kirn delivered a presentation on Jennerex product development entitled "Design and Development of Targeted and Armed Oncolytic Poxviruses, a Novel Therapeutic Class."

This follows on Jennerex's recent announcement that Phase I clinical trial results from its first-in-class lead product JX-594 were published in the premier journal Lancet Oncology. The majority of these end-stage patients with solid tumors had objective tumor destruction and responses following treatment with the cancer biotherapeutic. Half of the JX-594-treated patients survived for more than eight months, well beyond their life expectancies of three to four months, and four patients with tumor responses survived for 11 to over 18 months. Results were especially promising for liver and lung cancer patients. Importantly, treatment with JX-594 was shown to be well-tolerated. A Phase II clinical trial is now underway for JX-594 in liver cancer. The world-wide liver cancer market is estimated at over one billion dollars per year.
