SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InNexus Biotechnology Inc.

"Preclinical data on DXL625 indicates the strong promise of this candidate as a prospective treatment for NHL and Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia (CLL), and we anticipate starting clinical trials in the near term," said Dr. Thomas Kindt, Chief Scientific Officer of InNexus.
