Exclusive: CEO Says Despite Dendreon's Setbacks, This Is Only the Beginning of Immunotherapy Revolution

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - In an exclusive interview, Dr. Manish Singh, President and CEO of ImmunoCellular Therapeutics (OTCBB: IMUC), shares his thoughts on recent headlines which have sent shockwaves through the entire biotechnology grouping on Wall Street.

Singh, a leading oncology field innovator, has positioned his firm as one of the leaders in the cancer vaccine space -- complete with products and technologies designed to harness the power of the patient's own immune system in order to not only fight but also improve the diagnosis of cancer.

With Dendreon share prices down significantly since reporting underwhelming second-quarter earnings and withdrawing 2011 revenue guidance last week, what impact do their recent setbacks have on the entire cancer immunotherapy space?

Does being a fast follower as opposed to a leader have its advantages? Can ImmunoCellular Therapeutics avoid some of the reimbursement issues Dendreon is facing -- and if so, how?

The full exclusive interview, including new details about the company's own leading drug candidate, ICT-107, is available now at:
