Date:10/13/2009

BALTIMORE, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Champions Biotechnology, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CSBR), a drug development company with a preclinical platform able to predict clinical effectiveness, accelerate development and enhance the value of oncology drugs, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent on September 29, 2009 for the company's tubulin inhibitors, including its lead compound SG410. U.S. Patent No. 7,595,326 entitled "Synthesis of Novel Tubulin Polymerization Inhibitors: Benzoylphenylurea (BPU) Sulfur Analogs" protects the Company's composition of matter, pharmaceutical composition, and method of treatment for SG410. The patent is owned by Champions Biotechnology.

"This patent solidifies Champions' intellectual property position on SG410. We believe that SG410, in the new Neowater formulation we developed, has the potential to significantly impact the treatment of cancer," said Doug Burkett, Ph.D., President of Champions Biotechnology, Inc. "SG410 is Champions' first internal compound and is currently undergoing Biomerk Tumorgraft(TM) evaluation. The results of SG410 tests in our predictive platform are expected to be available soon.

About SG410

SG410 is an antimitotic inhibitor that was shown in Tumorgraft models to target microtubule associated protein tau (MAPT) deficient tumors with promising results as compared to a currently marketed and leading chemotherapeutic drug. These antimitotic inhibitors target MAPT (Microtubule-Associated Protein Tau) deficient tumors. In both in vitro and in vivo models, SG410 has demonstrated promising activity against prostate and pancreatic cancer.

About Champions Biotechnology, Inc.

Champions Biotechnology, Inc. is engaged in the development of advanced preclinical platforms and tumor specific data to enhance and accelerate the value of oncology drugs. The Company's Preclinical Platform is a novel approach based upon the implantation of primary human tumors in immune deficient mice followed by propagation of the resulting engraftments (Biomerk Tumorgrafts(TM)) in a manner that preserves the biological characteristics of the original human tumor. Early studies suggest that unlike traditional xenografts, these Tumorgrafts closely reflect human cancer biology and their response to drugs is predictive of clinical outcomes in cancer patients. Champions Biotechnology leverages its preclinical platform to evaluate drug candidates and to develop a portfolio of novel therapeutic candidates. As drugs progress through early stage development, the Company plans to sell, partner or license them to pharmaceutical and/or biotechnology companies, as appropriate. The Company also offers its predictive preclinical platform and tumor specific data to physicians for personalized patient care and to companies for evaluation of oncology drugs in models that integrate prognostic testing with biomarker discovery.
