SEATTLE, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. ("CTI" or the "Company") (Nasdaq and MTA: CTIC) today reported recent accomplishments and financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

"We have made solid progress in controlling costs with a 52% decrease in net operating expense and a 68% decrease in net loss for the quarter compared to the same period last year while strengthening the balance sheet with the recent financing," said James A. Bianco, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Recent Highlights

Additionally, the PDCO also recommended deferral of the initiation of the clinical studies until after the drug receives EMA approval.
