    About Jennerex
    Jennerex is a clinical-stage biotherapeutics company focused on the
development and commercialization of first-in-class, breakthrough targeted
oncolytic products for cancer. The company's lead product JX-594, currently in
an international Phase 2 trial for primary liver cancer, demonstrated
promising Phase 1 efficacy and safety results in patients with a diverse array
of common large market cancers. Jennerex's products target, attack and
eradicate cancers through a novel and potent oncolytic mechanism that is
dependent on highly-specific replication of the company's poxviruses in cancer
cells. These products simultaneously stimulate the body's immune response to
the cancer. Of note, this mechanism of action and the results in patients to
date put the company's product class in a leadership position. Jennerex's
position is in marked contrast to gene therapy and standard cancer vaccine
approaches. For more information about Jennerex and the company's robust
pipeline and three clinical-stage products, please visit
