precision. Brain scans are administered at eight-week intervals post-treatment. Cotara has been generally well tolerated with an acceptable safety profile in clinical studies completed to date.

The main objectives of the open label Phase I dosing and dosimetry study at U.S. brain cancer centers are to confirm the maximum tolerated dose, to determine radiation dosimetry and to assess overall patient survival, progression free survival and the proportion of patients alive at six months following Cotara administration. Dosimetry data presented at the 2008 ASCO Annual Meeting showed that Cotara delivered 100-fold more radiation to the tumor as compared to other organs. Expanded data from this study has been accepted for an oral presentation at the Society of Nuclear Medicine Annual Meeting on June 16, 2009 in Toronto, Canada.

About Cotara(R)

Cotara is an experimental treatment for brain cancer that links a radioactive isotope to a targeted monoclonal antibody designed to bind to the DNA histone complex that is exposed by dead and dying cells found at the center of solid tumors. Cotara's targeting mechanism enables it to bind to the dying tumor cells, delivering its radioactive payload to the adjacent living tumor cells and essentially destroying the tumor from the inside out, with minimal radiation exposure to healthy tissue. Cotara is delivered using convection-enhanced delivery (CED), an NIH-developed method that targets the specific tumor site in the brain. In a
