2 Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information Certain information contained in this presentation, including any information as to our strategy, projects, plans or future financial or operating performance and other statements that express management's expectations or estimates of future performance, constitute "forward-looking statements”. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. The words “believe”, "expect", "will", “anticipate”, “contemplate”, “target”, “plan”, “continue”, “budget”, “may”, “intend”, “estimate” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by management, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Immune Cell Therapy, Inc. cautions the reader that such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual financial results, performance or achievements of the company to be materially different from the company's estimated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by those forward-looking statements and the forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Such risks include but are not limited to: the ability to obtain financing immediately in current markets, the impact of general economic conditions, general conditions in the pharmaceutical and/or nutraceuticals industry, changes in the regulatory environment in the jurisdictions in which the Immune Cell Therapy, Inc. does business, fluctuations in costs, and changes to the competitive environment due to consolidation, achievement of forecasted burn rate, and that actual results may vary once the final and quality-controlled verification of data and analyses has been completed. Immune Cell Therapy, Inc. disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
3 About Immune Cell Therapy, Inc. (ICT) ICT possesses the exclusive Intellectual Patent Property for the utilization of Allogeneic Cell Lines (ACL) in the modification and method of use in the treatment of human cancers.Pre-clinical data provides strong evidence that the relative effects of ACL processes are highly immunogenic and efficaciousPersonalized Cellular Vaccines for Lung CancerVaccines for Breast CancerFine. But will be

6 Normal Cells from Unrelated Healthy Individual How It WorksDNA from the patient’s Cancer Cells is Transferred into Normal Cells from Unrelated Healthy Individual.Normal cells from an unrelated healthy individual that take up DNA express cancer antigens.Normal CellsNormal Cells from Unrelated Healthy IndividualCancer Cells
7 How It WorksDendritic cells incorporate DNA from the foreign cells expressing cancer antigens. They activate killer T cells in the patient.Foreign cells expressing cancer antigens are taken up by patient’s dendritic cells.
8 Leaving normal patient cells intact How It WorksActivated T cells seek out cancer cells in the patient and destroy them.Leaving normal patient cells intact
10 Pre-Clinical ResultsExtended survival seen with ICT Vaccine compared to Dendritic Cell Vaccine (DC/SCC) in mice with aggressive Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC).DC/SCCICTVaccineAnticancer Research 26; 2006; pp
11 Pre-Clinical ResultsMice with melanoma treated solely by immunization with the ICT Vaccine developed strong, long-term resistance to the growth of the tumor. In some instances, the mice survived indefinitely.ICTVaccineThe Journal of Immunology, Vol. 160, No. 6; March 15, 1998; pp
12 Pre-Clinical ResultsMice with breast cancer treated by immunization with ICT Vaccine survived more than 55 days without evident disease. They rejected the breast cancer cells.ICTVaccine
13 Early Phase 1 ProgressFirst lung cancer patient who received conventional therapy* followed by immunization with ICT’s DNA-based vaccine has remained disease free with no toxicity for more than two years.PathologyStage IIBPoorly diff. 6.5 cm adenocarcinoma with metastasesICT VaccinePatient is disease free and no toxicity. Make implication to tie in with disease free. Prehaps a subliminal on health. Cancer cell being distroyed*Taxotere/Cisplatin; **Case report in preparation.
14 Why Immune Cell Therapy? ICT addresses key issues in Cancer ImmunotherapyProblemICT SolutionVaccines usually antigen specifice.g. ProvengeIs patient-specific-Immune response isdirected toward the unique characteristicsof each patient’s cancer (all antigens)Dendritic cell based vaccinescostly/difficult to prepareCan be readily prepared and administeredat low cost to patientsLeukapheresis requiredCan be prepared from minute amountsof tumor tissue enabling treatment atearly stage of the diseaseRequires large amounts of tissueOther Cancer Vaccines requirenovel delivery methods to administerNo foreign delivery technology requiredImmune system naturally incorporatesforeign cells/processes antigens
15 Benefits Only small quantity of tumor tissue required Vaccine is conveniently and readily prepared at relatively low cost. Leukapheresis is not requiredVaccine specifies a broad array of tumor antigens and is personalized to patients tumorNon-ToxicMore Efficacious and Immunogenic than other Vaccine Approaches (Preclinical Head to Head Models)Recipient cell line can be modified in advance to augment its inherent immunogenic properties (e.g., cytokine-secretion)Number of vaccine cells can be expanded as required for multiple immunizationsAdded text.

16 MilestonesExtensive patent portfolio protects technology (4 issued patents (US/Europe Coverage) and 2 PendingIn Excess of $2 Million in Grant and Venture Funding to dateCompany-sponsored phase 1 clinical trial is ongoing.Collaboration established with University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute to conduct the trial.IRB (Institutional Review Board) approval obtained for phase I Lung Cancer StudyFDA-approved human cells/facilities to prepare vaccine are on-handIND (Investigational New Drug) issued for Lung Cancer VaccinePhase I/II toxicity/efficacy study.Permission granted to treat up to 37 lung cancer patients.Only Lung Cancer Vaccine in clinical trials that targets multiple epitopes unique to the patient’s tumor (Lucanix in Phase 3 development in lung cancer targets only TGF-Beta.Extensive Preclinical In Vitro and In Vivo research validates technology and efficacyPut in timeline framework.2006 to Present
