THIRD QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

    • Bio-Path continued to enroll patients into the Phase I clinical trial of its lead product candidate, Liposomal Grb-2, which is being evaluated as a systemic treatment for blood cancers including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). The trial is being conducted at the MD Anderson Cancer CenterThe clinical trial is currently in the second cohort, treating patients with a dose of 10 mg/m 2, of Liposomal Grb-2. The protocol for the clinical trial includes dose escalation of 5, 10, 20, 40 and 50 mg/m 2. In July of 2011, the Company completed the first cohort of the trial (dose of 5 mg/m 2). There were no treatment-related serious adverse events and the data suggested some possible anti-leukemia activity.
    • Company investors exercised warrants to purchase common stock at the end of September, raising approximately $142,000. After the close of the third quarter, there was another warrant exercise; including this exercising of warrants, the amount raised was approximately $0.6 million in total.

Net cash used in operating activities for the first nine months of 2011 was $(726,157) compared to $(995,584) for the first nine months of 2010.

Looking toward the remainder of the year, as previously announced in October, an abstract entitled, “Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Efficacy of BP-100.1.01 (L-Grb-2 Antisense Oligonucleotide) in Patients with Refractory or Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML), Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), and Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)” was accepted for a poster presentation at the 53 rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) to be held December 10 to 13, 2011 in San Diego, California. The ASH Annual Meeting is the premier event for physicians and healthcare researchers involved in hematology to meet to learn about the latest developments to treat blood diseases.

“During the third quarter, we continued to make steady progress with our clinical trial of Liposomal Grb-2. Patients are enrolling into the second cohort of the trial and the drug continues to be well tolerated,” said Peter Nielsen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bio-Path. “We look forward to the ASH Annual Meeting where the principle investigator of the clinical trial will present the results of the first cohort. We deem this as a very important step to increasing the awareness amongst oncologists dealing with blood cancers about the potential for treating these diseases with Liposomal Grb-2.”
