About Novelos Therapeutics, Inc.

Novelos Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQX: NVLT) trades in the United States on OTCQX under the symbol "NVLT". Novelos Therapeutics is a pharmaceutical company developing novel drugs for the treatment and diagnosis of cancer.  Novelos' three cancer-targeted compounds are selectively taken up and retained in cancer cells (including cancer stem cells) versus normal cells.  Thus, Novelos' therapeutic compounds appear to directly kill cancer cells while minimizing harm to normal cells.  This offers the potential for a paradigm shift in cancer therapy by providing efficacy versus all three major drivers of mortality in cancer: primary tumors, metastases and stem cell-based relapse.  LIGHT is a small-molecule cancer-targeted PET imaging agent.  Novelos believes that LIGHT has first-in-class potential and Phase 1-2 clinical trials are ongoing.  HOT is a small-molecule, broad-spectrum, cancer-targeted molecular radiotherapeutic that delivers radiation directly and selectively to cancer cells and cancer stem cells.  Novelos believes that HOT also has first-in-class potential.  HOT Phase 1b dose-escalation trial is ongoing and Novelos expects HOT to enter Phase 2 trials in the first quarter of 2013 as monotherapy for solid tumors with significant unmet medical need, subject to additional funding.  COLD, a cancer-targeted non-radioactive chemotherapy, works primarily through Akt inhibition.  Novelos plans to file an IND for COLD in the first quarter of 2013, subject to additional funding.  Together, Novelos believes that its compounds are able to "find, treat and follow" cancer anywhere in the body in a novel, effective and highly selective way.  For additional information please visit
