Data Reported at the Congress of the European Hematology Association

SAN DIEGO, June 11, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Favrille, Inc. , a biopharmaceutical company developing patient-specific, active immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer, announced interim data from a Phase 2 clinical trial of FavId(R) in patients with indolent B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The data were reported at the Congress of the European Hematology Association in Vienna on Saturday.

"We are encouraged by the preliminary results from this trial, which included patients with differing forms of indolent B-cell NHL," said Emanuele Zucca, M.D., co-investigator and Head of the Lymphoma Unit at the Oncology Institute of Southern Switzerland. "We are also encouraged by the feasibility of administering a patient-specific active immunotherapy, manufactured in the U.S., in patients in Europe."

A copy of Dr. Zucca's presentation is now available on Favrille's website at http://www.favrille.com.

This ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial is open to patients with various indolent forms of B-cell NHL who are either treatment-naïve, relapsed or refractory following prior chemotherapy, or relapsed following a prior response to Rituxan. The trial is expected to enroll 15 patients, but enrollment may be expanded if activity is seen in any specific patient subset.
