Date:5/15/2012

ROCKVILLE, Md., May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EntreMed, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

The Company reported a net loss for the first quarter of approximately ($2.5 million), or ($0.23) per share, compared with a net loss of ($2.6 million), or ($0.25) per share, for the same period last year.  The Company did not report any revenues for the first quarter 2012.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $11.3 million. 

Sara B. Capitelli, Vice President, Finance and Principal Accounting Officer, commented, "Our financial resources were dedicated primarily to the clinical development of our primary drug candidate, ENMD-2076.  R&D expenses for the first quarter decreased from the previous year as fewer patients were enrolled in and remained on clinical trials during 2012, compared to the 2011 period when we were continuing to enroll patients in the ENMD-2076 Phase 2 ovarian cancer study.  We will continue to deploy our capital strategically to advance ENMD-2076, while at the same time continue to carefully monitor and control expenses.  We expect that R&D expenses for ENMD-2076 will remain consistent or increase from the first quarter as we execute on our drug development strategy in 2012."

Dr. Ken Ren, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We start this next quarter with renewed determination, energy and a stronger balance sheet.  We expect to focus and execute on our development plans and leverage our resources in both the U.S. and China for drug development and financing." 

About EntreMedEntreMed, Inc. is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company committed to using global resources to develop its lead compound, ENMD-2076, a selective angiogenic kinase inhibitor, for the treatment of cancer.  ENMD-2076 is currently completing a multi-center Phase 2 study in ovarian cancer and completed several Phase 1 studies in solid tumors, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.  Additional information about EntreMed is available on the Company's web site at www.entremed.com and in various filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC).

About ENMD-2076ENMD-2076 is an orally-active, Aurora A/angiogenic kinase inhibitor with a unique kinase selectivity profile and multiple mechanisms of action. ENMD-2076 has been shown to inhibit a distinct profile of angiogenic tyrosine kinase targets in addition to the Aurora A kinase. Aurora kinases are key regulators of mitosis (cell division), and are often over-expressed in human cancers. ENMD-2076 also targets the VEGFR, Flt-3 and FGFR3 kinases which have been shown to play important roles in the pathology of several cancers. ENMD-2076 has shown promising activity in Phase 1 clinical trials in solid tumor cancers, leukemia, and multiple myeloma.  ENMD-2076 is currently completing a Phase 2 trial for ovarian cancer.
