FDA Approves PROVENGE(R) for the Treatment of Men with Advanced Prostate Cancer
Date:4/29/2010

SEATTLE, April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dendreon Corporation (Nasdaq: DNDN) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved PROVENGE® (sipuleucel-T), an autologous cellular immunotherapy for the treatment of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic metastatic, castrate-resistant (hormone-refractory) prostate cancer (CRPC).  PROVENGE is designed to induce an immune response against prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP), an antigen expressed in most prostate cancers, and is the first in a new therapeutic class known as autologous cellular immunotherapies.

The FDA approval of PROVENGE is a testament to the courage of the patients and researchers who participated in our studies and is the culmination of nearly 15 years of research and development by our dedicated employees," said Mitchell H. Gold, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Dendreon.  "The approval of PROVENGE is a significant step towards realizing our mission of transforming the lives of patients with cancer, and it also marks Dendreon's transformation into a commercial enterprise, ready to support the successful launch of the first personalized treatment for cancer."

Dendreon intends to make PROVENGE available through approximately 50 centers, all of which were approved PROVENGE clinical trial sites, and expects to increase capacity over the next year. The increased capacity will be a result of the anticipated licensure of its expanded New Jersey, Atlanta, Georgia and Orange County, Calif. facilities in mid-2011.
