SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

While an understanding regarding certain matters was reached, additional interaction over the next several weeks and months is needed to finalize ANX-188 development plans. During that time the Company will continue to make progress on the manufacture of clinical trial material so that a phase 3 study can be initiated in 2012. Brian M. Culley, Chief Executive Officer of ADVENTRX, said, "As part of our commitment to a strong relationship with FDA, we have met with the Agency four times in recent months to discuss development plans for our product candidates. In particular, with a complex condition such as sickle cell crisis, it is crucial to have clarity around all aspects of our development plans for ANX-188. We appreciate FDA's continued involvement and look forward to further dialogue with the Agency, which will allow us to reach agreement on a path to approval for ANX-188 for the benefit of sickle cell patients."
