Cell Therapeutics and IDIS Partner to Accelerate Patient Access to Pixantrone through Program

SEATTLE, May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) (Nasdaq and MTA: CTIC) today announced that pixantrone is now available on a named-patient basis in Europe. Pixantrone will be supplied by IDIS to healthcare professionals for the treatment of individual patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) that has either relapsed after standard therapies or is refractory to them. We know of no therapy that has previously been shown to be effective treatment for such patients.

"CTI has worked hard to make pixantrone available in Europe at the prescriber's request as it provides an option for these difficult to treat aggressive NHL patients," noted Craig Philips, President of CTI. "We continue to work toward potential approval of pixantrone at the end of 2009 in the United States and expect to complete the submission of the New Drug Application to the Food & Drug Administration this quarter."

"Our experience with pixantrone has been positive with patients achieving a complete response where such a result was not achievable with other treatments," said Prof. Pier Luigi Zinzani, M.D., Institute of Hematology and Oncology, University of Bologna. "I am pleased that it is now available on a named-patient basis as it has the potential to address a significant unmet need in this heavily pretreated patient population."

A named-patient program is a compassionate use drug supply program under which physicians can legally supply investigational drugs to qualifying patients. Under a named-patient program, investigational drugs can be administered to patients who are suffering from serious illnesses prior to the drug being approved by the European Medicines Evaluation Agency. "Named-patient" distribution refers to the distribution or
