Intercell AG to Acquire Iomai Corporation to Expand Late Stage Product Pipeline and Strengthen Leadership in Vaccine Innovation
Date:5/12/2008

o the market, Intercell is fully committed to becoming the leading pure play vaccine company globally. We look forward to welcoming Iomai's employees to Intercell and are excited by the potential of the combined group to create significant value for all stakeholders."

Stanley C. Erck, President and CEO of Iomai, said: "We have built a dynamic and scientifically driven organisation. This strategic combination with Intercell will create a stronger, more diversified vaccine company and will accelerate the development of Iomai's vaccine programs and fully leverage our innovative TCI technology. We believe this transaction is in the best interest of all parties, including shareholders, employees and ultimately patients."

Intercell will also gain full rights to two additional clinical and three preclinical programs under development, the most advanced being an immunostimulant vaccine patch in Phase II for pandemic influenza. This patch is designed to enhance the immune response compared to injected pandemic influenza vaccines. If successful, it would have the effect of expanding limited vaccine supplies by allowing public health officials to use fewer or lower doses of the vaccine. The vaccine patch has recently generated positive interim immunogenicity data in a 500-subject Phase I/II study with a one-dose application. The program is funded by a grant from the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

Iomai's pioneering work in transcutaneous immunization (TCI) technology has led to the development of a simple and promising needle-free vaccine patch. This highly innovative vaccine delivery system provides a potential future alternative to current injected vaccines. TCI technology has the potential to enhance the efficacy of existing vaccines, replace current vaccines that have a cumbersome mode of administration and enable the development of new vaccines that are not viable to be delivered via an injection.
