About INTUVAX

INTUVAX is a cancer immune primer, developed for the treatment of solid
tumors. Its active ingredient is activated white blood cells, so called
dendritic cells, derived from healthy blood donors. Intratumoral injection of
these cells is expected to lead to an inflammatory response which in turn
leads to tumor-specific activation of the patient's cytotoxic T lymphocytes.

About Immunicum AB (publ)

Immunicum AB (publ) is working to develop and advance cancer immune primers
for the treatment of tumor diseases. A clinical phase II trial for the
Company's most advanced product - INTUVAX® against kidney cancer - has been
initiated. The project portfolio contains additional clinical phase I/II
studies in liver cancer and in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST).
