SEATTLE, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trubion Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: TRBN) today announced that Scott C. Stromatt, M.D., has been appointed Trubion's senior vice president and chief medical officer (CMO). Dr. Stromatt replaces Daniel J. Burge, M.D., who will be resigning his position with the company for personal reasons in late August 2008.

Dr. Stromatt has extensive experience related to the development and commercialization of novel therapies. Most recently, he was executive vice president of clinical and regulatory affairs at Cell Therapeutics Inc. in Seattle. While at Cell Therapeutics, Dr. Stromatt managed global clinical research programs for several product candidates in a variety of oncology indications. Before holding this role at Cell Therapeutics, Dr. Stromatt was vice president of clinical research and chief medical officer at Northwest Biotherapeutics Inc. in Bothell, Wash.

"Dr. Stromatt's experience, particularly in the area of rheumatology and oncology drug development, is a great fit for Trubion as we continue to expand our product pipeline and develop new product candidates," said Peter Thompson, M.D., FACP, president, chief executive officer and chairman of Trubion. "We're thrilled with Scott's decision to join the Trubion team, and we look forward to the positive impact he will have while leading our clinical development activities."

"At the same time," Dr. Thompson continued, "I would like to thank Dr. Burge for his many contributions to Trubion. During Dan's tenure as CMO, the company advanced several alliance-based and proprietary product candidates into clinical evaluation. Dan's leadership helped us build Trubion into a growing biopharmaceutical company, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors."
