ADVENTRX to Present CoFactor Phase 2 Breast Cancer Data at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)
Date:3/12/2008

SAN DIEGO, March 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Amex: ANX) announced today that preliminary data from the Company's Phase 2 clinical study of ANX-510, CoFactor(R), for the treatment of advanced breast cancer has been accepted for presentation at the 2008 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, which takes place May 30 - June 3, 2008 in Chicago, IL.

The poster presentation entitled "5,10 methylenetetrahydrofolic acid with 5-fluorouracil as treatment for advanced breast cancer in patients who failed prior treatment with anthracyclines and taxanes: A phase 2 study," is scheduled to be presented on June 2, 2008.

About ANX-510, or CoFactor

CoFactor is a folate-based biomodulator designed to replace leucovorin as the preferred method to enhance the activity and reduce associated toxicity of the widely used cancer chemotherapeutic agent 5-FU (5-fluorouracil). Compared to leucovorin, CoFactor creates more stable binding between the active form of 5-FU and the target enzyme, thymidylate synthase. CoFactor bypasses the metabolic pathway required by leucovorin to deliver the active form of folate, potentially allowing 5-FU to work more effectively.
