Mark R. Bray, Ph.D., EntreMed Vice President, Research, will give an oral presentation on the Company's selective kinase inhibitor, ENMD-2076, during the special session, "New Drugs on the Horizon 2." EntreMed will share the podium with representatives from leading pharmaceutical companies during this special session which provides early disclosure of new small molecules that are nearing or have recently advanced into clinical trials. Dr. Bray's presentation is scheduled for Sunday, April 13, 2008, at 3:15 p.m.

ENMD-2076 is selective kinase inhibitor with potent activity against Aurora A and tyrosine kinases linked to promoting cancer and inflammatory diseases. ENMD-2076 acts through multiple pathways resulting in antiproliferative activity and the inhibition of angiogenesis. ENMD-2076 has demonstrated substantial, dose-dependent efficacy as a single agent in multiple xenograft models, including tumor regression in breast, colon, and leukemia models. Importantly, ENMD-2076 is an oral agent that has shown an acceptable toxicity profile in preclinical studies without cardiovascular effects.

In addition, EntreMed scientists are scheduled for the following poster presentations:

-- "ENMD-1198 Antitumor Activity and Inhibition of HIF-1alpha, STAT3 and

NFkappaB Signaling Pathways are Dependent on Microtubule Isotype

Expression and Targeting," Monday, April 14, 2008 from 1:00 PM -

5:00 PM

-- "Combination Therapy of MKC-1 and Paclitaxel Synergistically Inhibits

Tumor Growth in the MDA-MB-231 Orthotopic Breast Cancer Tumor Model,"

Tuesday, April 15, 2008, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM.

Dr. Bray's presentation, as well as the poster presentations, will be available on the Company's web site at http://www.entremed.com.
