Human Genome Sciences Reports Initial Results of Randomized Phase 2 Trial of HGS-ETR1 in Combination With Bortezomib in Advanced Multiple Myeloma
Date:9/2/2008

in 2009.

-- In July 2008, HGS initiated dosing in the safety lead-in to a randomized Phase 2 trial of HGS-ETR1 in combination with Nexavar (sorafenib) in patients with advanced hepatocellular cancer, which accounts for 80-90% of all liver cancers.

These three trials, taken together, will support a decision on whether to advance HGS-ETR1 to Phase 3 development. It also is possible that a sufficiently positive result from any one of the trials could lead to a Phase 3 decision for that specific indication.

About Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow. In the United States each year, there are approximately 11,000 deaths from multiple myeloma, with approximately 16,000 new cases diagnosed. It accounts for about 10% of all hematologic cancers.

About HGS-ETR1

HGS-ETR1 (mapatumumab) is an agonistic human monoclonal antibody that directly induces cancer-cell death by specifically binding to and activating the protein known as TRAIL receptor 1. Using genomic techniques, HGS originally identified the TRAIL receptor 1 protein. The HGS-ETR1 antibody was generated by HGS through collaboration with Cambridge Antibody Technology. HGS is developing HGS-ETR1 as a potential treatment for a broad range of cancers.

About Human Genome Sciences

The mission of HGS is to apply great science and great medicine to bring innovative drugs to patients with unmet medical needs.

The HGS clinical development pipeline includes novel drugs to treat hepatitis C, lupus, inhalation anthrax, cancer and other immune-mediated diseases. The Company's primary focus is rapid progress toward the commercialization of its two key lead drugs, Albuferon(R) (albinterferon alfa- 2b) for hepatitis C and LymphoStat-B(R) (belimumab) for lupus. Phase 3 clinical trials of both drugs are ongoing.

ABthrax(TM) (raxibacumab) is in late-stage development for the treatment of inhalation anthrax, and the Company is o
