Generex and RXi Pharmaceuticals Announce Positive Research Data Using RNAi Technology in the Development of Therapeutic Vaccines for Cancer
Date:1/6/2011

WORCESTER, Mass., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTC Bulletin Board: GNBT), together with its wholly-owned immunotherapeutic vaccines subsidiary, Antigen Express, Inc. (www.antigenexpress.com), and RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (www.rxipharma.com) (NasdaqCM: RXII), a recognized leader in RNAi-based therapeutics, today announced that they have obtained positive early research data from their collaboration to explore the use of RXi's RNAi technology to develop proprietary vaccine formulations for active immunotherapy.

Initial results from the collaboration demonstrated success in using RXi's proprietary self-delivering rxRNA™ (sd-rxRNA™) compounds to silence genes up to 80% in hemopoietic cells.  The ability to knock down expression of certain genes in isolated hemopoietic-derived cancer cells (ex vivo) has the potential to convert them into specific immune-stimulants and opens the possibility for development of a new class of anticancer therapeutic vaccines.  RXi's sd-rxRNA compounds may be particularly suitable for this use, since they are able to cross cell membranes without the assistance of any delivery agent.

"We are very pleased to have identified a technology that enables efficient RNAi silencing in hemopoietic cells," said Dr. Eric von Hofe, President of Antigen Express.  "These types of cells are notoriously difficult to deliver RNAi and other oligonucleotide molecules to.  In contrast to other gene silencing technologies, RXi's compounds act more like small molecules, which may greatly facilitate clinical de
