Date:1/6/2009

Completed Phase 2 Bladder Augment Trial and Plans for Registration Trial to be Discussed

Breakthrough in Kidney Regeneration Program: Preclinical Progress to be Highlighted

EAST NORRITON, Pa., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Tengion Inc., a clinical-stage organ regeneration company with products in urologic, vascular, and renal regeneration, today announced that Steven Nichtberger, M.D., president and chief executive officer, is scheduled to present at the 27th Annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 2:30 p.m. PST. The conference will be held January 12 - 15 at The Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

For the first time, Dr. Nichtberger will discuss Tengion's completion of its Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with neurogenic bladder due to spina bifida and the company's plans for a Phase 3 trial of its Tengion Neo-Bladder Augment(R) in patients with neurogenic bladder, planned for initiation in the first half of 2009. Dr. Nichtberger will also present breakthrough preclinical data from Tengion's renal program.

"Regenerative medicine is on the verge of unimagined breakthroughs. Similar to the emergence of novel chemical, protein, and antibody therapeutics in the past few decades, the impact of regenerative medicine on human health is emerging with great promise in the new millennium," said Dr. Nichtberger. "Tengion is at the forefront of this space with a practical and proven organ regeneration technology platform with nearly a decade of human clinical experience. Recent preclinical advances in our renal program, which is focused on eliminating the need for dialysis in patients with emerging kidney failure, reinforce the promise and value of our technology platform. The past year has been filled with important milestones that position us well for 2009."

"Kidney regeneration from patients' own cells would become the standard of care for chronic renal failure therapy. Tengion's work on the neo-kidney is an important early step towards this goal," said Brian Pereira, MD, former President of the National Kidney Foundation, editor of the leading textbook, "Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis, & Transplantation," and Board member of Tengion, Inc.
