Argos Therapeutics to Present Potential of its Arcelis™ Immunotherapy as an Innovative, Effective Treatment for HIV at the APHA 138th Annual Meeting & Exposition
Date:11/9/2010

DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Argos Therapeutics today announced that Jeff Abbey, the company's president and chief executive officer, will present on the potential of Argos' Arcelis™ immunotherapy as an innovative and effective treatment for HIV at the APHA 138th Annual Meeting & Exposition in Denver, Colo., at 1:45 p.m. MST on Wednesday, Nov. 10. The conference will take place at the Colorado Convention Center.

Data from a Phase 2a trial of Argos' Arcelis HIV program, AGS-004, demonstrated a significant reduction in viral load and a delay in viral rebound kinetics during a 12-week antiretroviral treatment interruption (ARTI) when compared to pre-ART viral loads. AGS-004 is currently being tested in a double-blind, placebo controlled, randomized Phase 2b study co-funded by the NIH to further demonstrate that it is a feasible treatment option of HIV-1 infected patients.

About the Arcelis™ Technology

Arcelis is Argos' proprietary technology for personalizing RNA-loaded dendritic cell immunotherapies for cancer, HIV and other infectious diseases. This platform is based on optimizing a patient's own (autologous) dendritic cells to trigger a tumor- or pathogen-specific immune response. To address the challenge of the unique genetic profile of each patient's disease and the genetic mutations of that disease, Argos loads the autologous dendritic cells with a sample of messenger RNA ("mRNA") isolated from the patient's disease. Through this process, dendritic cells can potentially prime immune responses to the entire antigenic repertoire, resulting in an immunotherapeutic that is customized to the patient's specific disease.

About Argos Therapeutics, Inc.Argos is an immunotherapy company developing new treatments for cancer, infectious and autoimmune diseases and transplantation rejection. The Company has generated multiple platform technologies and a diverse pipeline of products based on its expertise in the biology of dendritic cells — the master switch that turns the immune system on or off. www.argostherapeutics.comContacts:David Schull or Andreas MarathovouniotisRusso Partners LLC(212) 845-4271 or (212) 845-4235david.schull@russopartnersllc.com or andreas.marathis@russopartnersllc.comJeff AbbeyArgos Therapeutics(919) 287-6308jabbey@argostherapeutics.com
