MMRGlobal Human Tissue Samples May Prove to Be of Significant Value to the Company's Future in Biotech

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ( today revealed that according to an expert retained by the Company, the relevant human tissue samples that are part of its biotech assets may have a value of at least $1.376 million. However, when combined with clinical data from the Company's vaccine research into the causes and potential treatment of B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, including data from patient follow-ups and the existence of whole blood or serums, if any, the value could be inestimable. MMRGlobal has retained scientific experts and advisors on behalf of its efforts to protect a portion of the Company's intellectual property and related technology claims pertaining to the Lymphoma Research Foundation. The Company acquired these assets through its reverse merger with Favrille, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, in January 2009. Favrille was previously based in San Diego. 

On April 14, 2010, MMRGlobal announced the existence of intellectual property in the form of approximately 150 patient samples collected during the Company's pre-merger Favrille vaccine trials. Through May of 2008, pre-merger Favrille had spent more than $140 million on the creation and development of intellectual property, which includes clinical trials data, patient samples, patents and other assets. The Company is working towards entering into licensing agreements with biopharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, research organizations and others regarding the use of the assets.

 "This is a first definitive valuation of our pre-merger intellectual property and demonstrates that the Company's efforts to find value in its patents and biotech assets continue to be in the best interest of the fight against cancer and for its shareholders," said Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The samples came to light when the Company was advised that data from Favrille's pre-merger vaccine trials for a project that theoretically could be used to predict the outcomes of patients vaccinated with idiotype vaccines. The Company was told that the project would seek to determine if it may be possible to predict which lymphoma patients vaccinated with a customized product made from their own tumor cells could conceivably mount a productive immune response against their own tumor. The Company has also been advised that results of such a project, if favorable, would have the potential to lead to a re-interpretation of the previous Favrille cancer vaccine trials. 

The Company has engaged consultants and advisors to advise the Company on opportunities that could maximize the value of the Company's pre-merger assets on a worldwide basis, the outcomes of which may not be known for some time. These assets include, but are not limited to, data from the Company's pre-merger clinical vaccine trials, the Specifid vaccine, and the anti-CD20 antibodies. 

Although MMRGlobal will continue to maximize the value of its biotech assets, the Company remains focused on its primary business, which is specifically the development and distribution of the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (, MMRPro, an end-to-end electronic document management solution for physicians which features an integrated patient portal (, and other related solutions in Health IT based on the Company's patented technologies.
