Tengion Announces IND Filing for Neo-Kidney Augment Expected During First Half of 2013
Date:4/17/2012

Phase 1 clinical trial in bladder cancer patients requiring a urinary diversion following bladder removal (cystectomy). The trial is designed to assess the safety and preliminary efficacy of the Neo-Urinary Conduit in up to 10 patients, as well as to translate the surgical procedure successfully used in preclinical animal models into clinical trials with human patients.  Four patients have been enrolled to date in the trial at the University of Chicago Medical Center and at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. The Company expects to complete implantation of the remaining patients in the trial by the end of 2012.
