EntreMed Reports Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results

ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EntreMed, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, today reported financial results for the three and six-month periods ending June 30, 2010.  



The Company reported a net loss for the second quarter of 2010 of ($4.9 million), or ($0.62) per share.  This compares with a net loss of ($3.1 million), or ($0.46) per share, for the same period last year.  For the first six months of 2010 the reported net loss was ($7.1 million), or ($0.95) per share as compared to ($6.6 million), or ($0.98) per share for 2009.  

As of June 30, 2010, EntreMed had cash and short-term investments of approximately $8 million.

Ms. Kathy Wehmeir-Davis, EntreMed Principal Accounting Officer, commented on the second quarter results, "During the second quarter, the Company recorded a $3.0 million non-cash charge in connection with a stock milestone payment triggered by the successful initiation of our Phase 2 clinical study with ENMD-2076. Excluding the non-cash charge, second quarter expenses were in line with our expectations and below the comparable period in 2009. We anticipate third and fourth quarter operating expenses to increase slightly as we complete enrollment for the multi-center Phase 2 ovarian cancer study. In addition, we expect that the majority of our 2010 revenue will be from royalties on the sales of Thalomid®, which will be recorded as received."

Michael M. Tarnow, EntreMed Executive Chairman, further commented, "The second quarter of 2010 was pivotal for the Company.  During the second quarter, we achieved a critical milestone with the initiation of the multi-center Phase 2 study for ENMD-2076 in ovarian cancer patients.  The Phase 2 study is being conducted at six prestigious cancer centers within the U.S. and Canada and all sites are currently enrolling patients.  In addition, we regained compliance with the minimum bid price rule and maintained our listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.  Early in the second quarter we completed our third financing for 2010 for $3.0 million in gross proceeds.  We remain encouraged and enthusiastic about the progress of the ENMD-2076 clinical program and are working hard to meet our development objectives for this exciting compound."

About ENMD-2076ENMD-2076 is an orally-active, Aurora A/angiogenic kinase inhibitor with a unique kinase selectivity profile and multiple mechanisms of action. Preclinical studies with ENMD-2076 demonstrated significant antitumor activity, including tumor regression, in multiple solid and hematological malignancies. 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. While ENMD-2076 is currently in a Phase 2 trial in ovarian cancer, preclinical and clinical activities are ongoing in assessing the compound's applicability in other forms of cancer.

About EntreMedEntreMed, Inc. is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company committed to developing ENMD-2076, a selective angiogenic kinase inhibitor, for the treatment of cancer.  ENMD-2076 is currently in a multi-center Phase 2 study in ovarian cancer and in several Phase 1 studies in solid tumors, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.  Additional information about EntreMed is available on the Company's web site at and in various filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
