Oslo, April 7 2014 - PCI Biotech announced that the company will be presenting

Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), the 11th Annual BIO Asia
International Conference will take place April 8-9 in Tokyo, Japan.

About the BIO Asia International Conference

About PCI Biotech
PCI Biotech is a Norwegian biopharmaceutical company developing a novel light
directed treatment system based on its patented photochemical internalisation
(PCI) technology. Originating from world leading research at the Norwegian
Radium Hospital, the PCI method involves first injecting the photosensitiser
Amphinex® and thereafter the therapeutic drug to be specifically delivered to
the diseased cells. When the diseased cells are illuminated the cells'
endosomes are ruptured to allow successful intracellular delivery of the
drug.

PCI can enhance the delivery of all molecules taken into the cell by
endocytosis. This includes most types of macromolecules, drugs carried by
antibodies or nanoparticles, as well as some small molecule drugs.

The PCI technology is also a versatile and innovative vaccination platform,
which may specifically increase the cytotoxic T-cell response of vaccines.
This is particularly important in therapeutic vaccination, when the immune
system needs to recognise and destroy diseased cells (e.g. virus infected
cells and cancer).

PCI Biotech follows a strategy to create value by improving the effect both of
existing cancer drugs and by realizing the large potential in new
therapeutics, including therapeutic vaccines.
