First Patient In Dendreon EU Open-Label Study Begins Sipuleucel-T Infusion Treatment

September 27, 2012--Dendreon Corporation (NASDAQ: DNDN) today announced the first patient enrollment and initiation of treatment for the sipuleucel-T European Union (EU) open-label study. The open-label study is being conducted in European men with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) to describe product release parameters and report on safety in a European population. The study may enroll up to 45 patients in four sites across the EU. Dendreon has submitted a marketing authorization application (MAA) for sipuleucel-T which is currently under review by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Sipuleucel-T is not approved for use outside the U.S. Sipuleucel-T is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the U.S. for the treatment of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer. It is marketed under the name PROVENGE ®.

"We are extremely pleased with the progress of this new study and that the first patient has begun his treatment," said Thomas Powles MD, MRCP, Barts Cancer Institute, St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London. "We are also excited about the potential study outcomes and look forward to a successful program with the support of our committed clinical team and dedicated patients."
