Published: Oct 21, 2011

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2011) - Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation "the Company" or "Radient" (OTCQX: RXPC) (PINKSHEETS: RXPC), a developer and marketer of In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) cancer tests, today announced that the lawsuits filed against Radient Pharmaceuticals regarding rights to its Combination Immune Technology (CIT) cancer vaccine technology have been dismissed.

On September 30, 2011, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta, Canada has ruled in favor of Radient by dismissing companion lawsuits filed by AccuVector Group Inc. in 2002, and the Board of Governors of the University of Alberta in 2003. The plaintiffs had alleged damages of up to CDN$20 million.

CIT is a patented cancer therapy owned by Radient Pharmaceuticals' wholly owned subsidiary, NuVax Therapeutics, Inc. CIT is a novel immunogene therapy that works based on a tumor vaccine comprising two polynucleotide sequence encoding two specific proteins into the patient's tumor cells to enhance the immune system's natural ability to destroy cancer cells. CIT technology induces an effective systematic anti-tumor response.

"The dismissal of this suit clears the way for us to move forward in a more productive way with our CIT technology," stated Radient Chairman and CEO Douglas MacLellan.
