DR. Michael Har-Noy to Present Abstract at ASCO Annual 2012 Meeting in Chicago

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - Immunovative, Inc. ("IMUN") (OTCBB: IMUN) today announced that an abstract reporting the results of IMUN's licensor, Immunovative Therapies, Ltd.'s, FDA-approved phase I/II clinical trial of 42 refractory metastatic solid tumor patients with a variety of indications. Although no objective tumor response was observed, there was evidence of enhanced survival and immune-mediated tumor debulking without graft-versus-host disease. Responsive Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors overestimated tumor burden, as responding tumors swelled and appeared larger on CT. Multi-parameter analysis identified serum IL-12 as a predictor of enhanced survival. 50% were IL-12+ and survived a median of 211 days vs. 131 days for IL-12- patients (p < .009). The Abstract (Number e13013) titled: "Response of HER2+ Breast Cancer Patients to Allogenic Cell Immunotherapy" is now available on on-line at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Meeting ("ASCO 2012") website at: http://abstract.asco.org/AbstView_114_92017.html

Dr. Michael Har-Noy will further comment on these results at ASCO 2012 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. To meet with Dr. Har-Noy at ASCO 2101, please contact Antonio Treminio, CEO of IMUN at 212-315-9705 or atreminio@immunovativeinc.com.
