ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals Announces Closing of Financing
Date:10/9/2009

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ANX) announced today that it has completed the previously announced sale of shares of its Series D convertible preferred stock pursuant to a registered direct offering to institutional investors, representing gross proceeds to ADVENTRX of approximately $11.3 million. ADVENTRX plans to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund its operations during the FDA review period of an ANX-530 NDA and to continue development of ANX-514, and for general corporate purposes.

The preferred stock is convertible into shares of ADVENTRX's common stock at the option of the investors at a conversion price of $0.18805 per share and will accrue a 4.25660% cumulative dividend until October 9, 2020. If the convertible preferred stock is converted at any time prior to October 9, 2020, ADVENTRX will pay the holder an amount equal to the total dividend that would accrue on the convertible preferred stock from the conversion date through October 9, 2020, or $468.23 per $1,000 stated value of preferred stock converted, less any dividend payments made with respect to the converted preferred stock. Approximately $5.3 million of the gross proceeds will be placed in an escrow account, which amounts will be released to make the dividend and other payments described above. The investors also will receive warrants to purchase an aggregate of 19,800,000 shares of ADVENTRX's common stock. The warrants will have an exercise price of $0.1468 per share and are exercisable at any time after the closing of the transaction and before the fifth anniversary of the initial exercise date.

The convertible preferred stock and warrants were sold by ADVENTRX pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). A prospectus relating to the offering was filed with the SEC on October 6, 2009. Rodman & Renshaw, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Rodman & Renshaw Capital Group, Inc. (NasdaqGM: RODM), acted as the exclusive placement agent for the transaction.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction. The securities may only be offered by means of a prospectus. Copies of the prospectus can be obtained directly from Rodman & Renshaw, LLC at 1251 Avenue of the Americas, 20th Floor, New York, NY 10020, or from the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the risk that ADVENTRX fails to submit an ANX-530 NDA, whether by December 31, 2009 or at all; the risk the FDA will determine that ANX-530 and Navelbine® are not bioequivalent or for the FDA to require additional preclinical work and/or clinical activities to support the submission or approval of an ANX-530 NDA; difficulties or delays in manufacturing, obtaining regulatory approval for and marketing ANX-530, including validating commercial manufacturers and suppliers; the risk that ADVENTRX's common stock will be delisted by the NYSE Amex, including as a result of failing to maintain sufficient stockholders' equity or a sufficient stock price; the risk that the provisions of Delaware General Corporation Law will prohibit ADVENTRX from making the cumulative dividend and other payments due its Series D convertible preferred stock (or to the holders thereof), which may be a breach of its certificate of incorporation or other contractual obligations and expose ADVENTRX to corresponding liability; the risk that ADVENTRX will be unable to raise sufficient additional capital to commercialize ANX-530 or to continue the development of ANX-514; the risk that the performance of third parties on whom ADVENTRX relies to conduct its studies or evaluate the data may be substandard, or they may fail to perform as expected; and other risks and uncertainties more fully described in ADVENTRX's press releases and in the prospectus relating to this offering that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 6, 2009.
