Cardium Announces Presentaton At The 2013 Cell & Gene Therapy Forum

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardium Therapeutics (NYSE MKT: CXM) today announced a presentation at the 2013 Phacilitate Annual Cell & Gene Therapy Forum in Washington, DC.  The Company's presentation, "Optimizing Phase III Trial Design for Generx® (Ad5FGF-4)" by Cardium's Chief Scientific Officer, Gabor M. Rubanyi, M.D., Ph.D. outlined the current scientific knowledge about the mechanistic basis of adaptive coronary collateral growth, the biological processes to be targeted by therapeutic angiogenesis, and discussed the lessons learned during the past decade of the Company's Generx clinical development program.  The presentation is available for viewing at http://www.cardiumthx.com/generx.html.

"The presentation yesterday reviewed new techniques that have been implemented to optimize our international Phase 3 ASPIRE clinical study for the Company's Generx® (Ad5FGF-4) DNA-based angiogenic growth factor drug candidate, including: (1) diagnostic identification of patients likely to be more responsive to angiogenic therapy; (2) new balloon catheter-based delivery methods designed to boost adenovector gene delivery and enhance angiogenic growth factor efficiency; and (3) selection of relevant clinical endpoints which may be useful in future clinical studies and help advance the field of therapeutic angiogenesis," stated Christopher J. Reinhard, Cardium's Chairman and CEO. 

Generx is an interventional cardiology-focused product candidate that is being developed to offer a one-time, non-surgical option for the treatment of a medical condition termed cardiac microvascular insufficiency (CMI) in patients with myocardial ischemia and symptomatic chronic stable angina pectoris due to coronary artery disease.  Patients with CMI have had an insufficient angiogenic response to their current disease state and may benefit from a biological therapy that enhances cardiac perfusion through the facilitation of collateral vessel formation.  Currently, patient inclusion in the ASPIRE study requires evidence of stress induced reversible myocardial ischemia as measured by SPECT imaging.  The goal of the Company's Generx product candidate is to improve blood flow to the heart muscle by promoting and enhancing cardiac perfusion through the enlargement of pre-existing collateral arterioles (arteriogenesis) and the formation of new capillary vessels (angiogenesis).  Various catheter-based imaging diagnostics including fractional flow reserve and washout collaterometry could enhance the clinical adoption of this non-surgical therapeutic angiogenesis approach following initial registration.
