TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NYSE Amex: RPC), a US-based company specializing in the research, development, and international commercialization of In Vitro Diagnostic cancer tests, announced today it has been selected to present at the 8th Annual BIO Asia International Partnering Conference January 24-25, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan. Hosted by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), this exclusive event brings together U.S. and European healthcare and pharmaceutical companies with Asian biotech and pharmaceutical companies interested in research and development collaborations and licensing and distribution agreements.

Recognized as the premier biotech business development event in Asia, the BIO Asia International Partnering Conference brings together a diverse international audience composed of senior-level executives and business development decision makers from more than 325 companies located in over 25 countries, including both emerging Companies like Radient Pharmaceuticals, and industry leaders like Abbott Labs, Amgen, Baxter, Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca and Sanofi Aventis. In addition to intimate networking sessions, attendees have unparalleled exposure to both emerging and established companies seeking strategic partnerships, licensing and business collaboration opportunities, and complete access to educational and plenary sessions, corporate presentations, and private, pre-arranged one-on-one meetings.

According to Radient Pharmaceuticals Chairman and CEO Douglas MacLellan, "We are extremely pleased to be selected as a presenter in this exclusive partnering forum and look forward to introducing RPC and our FDA-cleared Onko-Sure® In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) cancer test to select companies that represent strategic alliance, partnership and investment opportunities for our business. Events of this caliber are part of our on-going commercialization efforts for Onko-Sure® and offer an excellent venue to network with key members of the healthcare community -- both on the business and research and science side, who can help us advance and grow RPC for the long-term value of our shareholders."

RPC's Onko‐Sure® IVD cancer test is a simple, non‐invasive and regulatory-approved in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test used for the detection and monitoring of the treatment and/or recurrence of various types of cancer. The test enables physicians and healthcare professionals to effectively detect and/or monitor certain types of cancers by measuring the accumulation of Fibrin and Fibrinogen Degradation Products (FDP) in the blood. FDP levels rise dramatically with the progression of cancer. Onko-Sure® is cleared by the US FDA for detection during colorectal cancer treatment and/or for recurrence monitoring in colorectal cancer patients and by Health Canada for the detection, treatment and/or recurrence monitoring of lung cancer.
