    - Additional Presentations Underscore Potency, Binding Capabilities for
Antibody Pipeline And Novel Technologies -
    

    
    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InNexus
Biotechnology Inc. (Toronto Stock Exchange: IXS.V, http://www.ixsbio.com), a
drug development company commercializing the next generation of monoclonal
antibodies based on its technology, Dynamic Cross Linking (DXL(TM)), announced
today that the company will be presenting new data on its lead preclinical
candidate DXL625 (CD20) for the prospective treatment of Non Hodgkin's
Lymphoma (NHL) at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer
Research (AACR), April 18-22, in Denver.
    

    
    "Preclinical data on DXL625 indicates the strong promise of this
candidate as a prospective treatment for NHL and Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia
(CLL), and we anticipate starting clinical trials in the near term," said Dr.
Thomas Kindt, Chief Scientific Officer of InNexus.  "The AACR will also
feature a scientific presentation on our novel, proprietary approach for
creating 'programmed' self-binding properties into antibodies.  The increased
potency of the antibody resulting from this technique suggests a new way to
enhance antibody performance."
    

    
    Jeff Morhet, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of InNexus, said,
"InNexus has executed a focused and accelerated development plan for DXL625,
while efficiently discovering promising new therapeutic candidates and

'pure-play' antibody development company--an unusual investment and commercial
opportunity."
    

    
    InNexus' AACR presentations are titled, "A Novel High Avidity Anti-CD20
With Markedly Increased Cytotoxicity Shows No Systemic Toxicity In The
Cynomolgus Monkey At A Dose 100-Fold Above The Anticipated Therapeutic Dose",
(AACR# 1231) and "Oxidative Modification Of An Anti-CD20 Antibody Imparts
Autophilic Binding Kinetics", (AACR# 1230).  Posters and company
