Epimmune Overview

Epimmune Inc. is a leader in using gene maps of cancer-associated proteins and infectious agents to design vaccines that induce cellular immunity. Epimmune's technology platform is based on its pioneering work in deciphering the genetic code which regulates T-cell activation and in identifying antigen fragments known as epitopes which can activate highly targeted T-cell responses to tumors, viruses, bacteria and parasites. This new field of pharmacology opens two significant areas of pharmaceutical development: protective vaccines that activate T-cell protection against infections, such as HIV and hepatitis C, and therapeutic vaccines designed to stimulate antigen-specific T-cell responses to infections, such as HIV, hepatitis C and hepatitis B, and tumors such as breast, colon, lung and prostate.

This press release includes forward-looking statements that reflect management's current views of future events. Actual results may differ materially from the above forward-looking statements due to a number of important factors, including but not limited to the risks associated with the Company's ability to develop vaccines using epitopes, the ability of epitope-based vaccines to control infectious diseases and cancer, the safety and efficacy of epitope-based vaccines in humans, the Company's ability to enter into and maintain new collaborations and to license our technology, the efforts of the Company's collaborators and licensees to develop and commercialize products using the Company's technologies, achievement of research and development objectives by the Company and any collaborator, the timing and cost of conducting human clinical trials, the regulatory approval process, and the possibility that testing may reveal undesirable and unintended side effects or other characteristics that may prevent or limit the commercial use of proposed products. These factors are more fully discussed in the Company's 2000 Form 10-K, the most recent 10-Qs and other periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
