MMRGlobal Prevails in Biotech Assets Case With Lymphoma Research Foundation

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2010) -  MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) (MMR) announced today that it has successfully opposed a Summary Judgment Motion brought by the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) as part of its efforts to protect a portion of the Company's intellectual property, which it previously disclosed on May 3, 2010.

The Company acquired the biotech assets from its reverse merger with Favrille, Inc., a San Diego biotech company, in January 2009. Over the past year, MMR identified a collection of these biotech assets, which include biotech samples that were in the possession of the Lymphoma Research Foundation. They do not include other pre-merger biotech assets, including the Company's anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies, results of clinical trials data, patents and other intellectual property.

According to declarations filed on behalf of MMR, the Company understands that the biotech samples could have a value as high as $1.376 million. However, based on other information currently maintained by the Company, the samples could have a far greater value, depending on the extent and depth of the clinical data collected at trial initiation, the extent and depth of the clinical data collected during patient follow-up, whether follow-up tissue samples are available, and whether accompanying whole blood or serum is available from patients from trial enrollment or during trial progression.

Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, said, "We are pleased by this early ruling. 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 which the Company has, the value could be significant."

The Company understands its intellectual properties may also be of value in a possible reinterpretation of the pre-merger Favrille vaccine trials and that the IP may also unlock ways to create other "custom-made" cancer vaccines and be valuable in discovering additional opportunities in cancer research. The Company hopes to enter into licensing agreements with biopharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, research organizations and others regarding the use of its assets.
