CombiMatrix Corporation's Comprehensive Cancer Array Presentation Available On Website: Positive Data Was Presented At Conference in Boston

MUKILTEO, WA | Posted on May 13th, 2009

"We are pleased with the initial progress we have made with the development of this test," stated Dr. Amit Kumar, President and CEO of CombiMatrix Corporation. "We feel that this test when launched will have great market potential and tremendous implications regarding the approach to cancer, because of its non-invasive nature."

CombiMatrix's goal is to complete the research and development phase for the first version of the array by the end of the third quarter of 2009. While the initial focus is on colon, lung, breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers, CombiMatrix has not yet publicly disclosed the specific cancers which will be on the first version of the test. By the end of 2009, the final protocols, assay development and quality control metrics are expected to be complete. During the first half of 2010, CombiMatrix hopes to complete clinical trials in anticipation of a commercial launch during the third quarter of 2010. In parallel with the development of this array, CombiMatrix will be engaged in partnership discussions with third parties. Subsequent to launch, CombiMatrix expects to expand the scope and power of the array by incorporating additional oncology markets, and the Company will also conduct additional internal and external clinical trials.

It is important to note that this test is not a risk factor test for cancer, which identifies those at elevated risk of contracting a cancer. Instead, this test is being developed to perform as a screening test that is designed to identify those patients that potentially have a growing tumor at the time that the test is administered. Upon indication of a positive result, it is expected that the patient's physician will follow-up with additional tests to obtain a definitive diagnosis.

CombiMatrix encourages those who are interested in this test to review the presentation and to contact the Company if there are questions.
