Date:3/2/2009

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hana Biosciences (Nasdaq: HNAB) today announced that an Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) has completed a planned, pre-specified safety review of interim data from the ongoing pivotal rALLy clinical trial of Marqibo(R) (vincristine sulfate liposomes injection) for the treatment of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in second relapse. The results of the IDMC review continue to support the acceptable safety profile observed with Marqibo in earlier studies and no new safety concerns were identified. The IDMC has recommended that the trial continue to completion per protocol.

We target The 2009 American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting for a complete data presentation and look forward to submitting a New Drug Application for accelerated approval of Marqibo in 2010."
