Advanced Magnetics Announces Retirement of Founder Jerome Goldstein

CAMBRIDGE, MA | Posted on April 2nd, 2007

Mr. Goldstein founded Advanced Magnetics in November 1981 and completed
its initial public offering in June 1986. Mr. Goldstein commented that "For
25 years, we have developed our iron oxide nanoparticle technology for the
benefit of patients. Two early products, Feridex I.V.(R) and GastroMARK(R),
were brought to market and two additional products, Combidex(R) and
ferumoxytol, both of which I believe could have major beneficial impact,
are in the wings. We have succeeded in putting together an excellent team
capable of accomplishing the company's objectives going forward. I am 68
years old and the time and situation are appropriate for me to pass the
baton on to Brian Pereira. I wish all the employees of Advanced Magnetics
continued success."

Advanced Magnetics' President and Chief Executive Officer, Brian J. G.
Pereira, MD stated, "Jerry's vision and entrepreneurship led to the
founding of Advanced Magnetics and the development of outstanding
diagnostic and therapeutic products with the potential to significantly
improve patients' lives. He has guided the company ably for 25 years and
has been a vital contributor to its success to date, while positioning the
company well for future success. We thank Jerry for his invaluable
contributions over the years and wish him well in his plans for the
future."

About Advanced Magnetics
Advanced Magnetics, Inc. is a developer of superparamagnetic iron oxide
nanoparticles used in pharmaceutical products. As a leader in our field, we
are dedicated to the development and commercialization of our proprietary
nanoparticle technology for use in therapeutic iron compounds to treat
anemia, as well as novel imaging agents to aid in the diagnosis of
cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Ferumoxytol, the company's key product candidate, is being developed
for use as an intravenous iron replacement therapeutic for the treatment of
iron deficiency anemia in chronic kidney disease. The company plans to file
a New Drug Application for marketing approval of ferumoxytol with the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration during the fourth calendar quarter of 2007.

Combidex(R), the company's second product under development, is an
investigational functional molecular imaging agent consisting of iron oxide
nanoparticles for use in conjunction with magnetic resonance imaging, or
MRI, to aid in the differentiation of cancerous from normal lymph nodes. In
March 2005, the company received an approvable letter from the FDA with
respect to Combidex, subject to certain conditions.
