SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 01, 2013) -

EntreMed, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, announced today that it has received commitments from investors, including institutional investors Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers China Fund II, L.P. and IDG-Accel China Growth Fund III L.P. to purchase approximately $10.7 million of securities in a registered direct offering. Burrill Securities LLC acted as exclusive placement agent in this transaction.

"We are very pleased to have the support of this group of strategic investors.
