Hemispherx Biopharma Publishes Full National Press Club Presentation On Corporate Website

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemispherx Biopharma (NYSE MKT:HEB) announced today that the full text of the Hemispherx presentation given at the National Press Club (NPC) Conference in Washington, DC, on January 30, 2014 is being posted on the corporate website ( ). The NPC presentation followed the announcement of new clinical data at the American Society of Microbiology (ASM) Biodefense Conference in Washington, DC, on January 29, 2014. Brief summaries of the clinical results were thereafter published on February 10, 2014 in Drug Discovery News ( ) entitled Hemispherx Biopharma reports progress toward a universal influenza vaccine to prevent pandemic threats and on January 30, 2014 in Science Business Tech News ( ) entitled Early Trial Finds Vaccine Booster Covers Pandemic Flu Types

This clinical effort is the culmination of several years of research including primate testing on the development of a broad spectrum, pandemic influenza vaccine, initiated at the Japanese National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Tokyo, Japan. The present clinical work is in collaboration with the University of Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic, Birmingham, Alabama. The present research is being conducted with FluMist®, a commercially available intranasal seasonal influenza vaccine, and the Company anticipates the extension of this clinical research with other promising seasonal influenza vaccines to determine the extent, if any, of cross-reactivity conveyed by co-administration of the selective TLR-3 activator, rintatolimod, which is an experimental immunotherapeutic.

About Hemispherx Biopharma
