FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 12, 2007 (Gaithersburg, MD)

The Rathmann Foundation to Make Investment in Immunomic Therapeutics Gaithersburg, MD, January 12, 2007 /-- Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc. (ITI, www.immunomix.com) announced today that the Company will be receiving an investment from the Rathmann Family Foundation. The terms of the investment were not disclosed. “This investment is an important milestone in the development of Immunomic Therapeutics.” Dr. Bill Hearl, President & CEO of Immunomic Therapeutics said. “The Rathmann Family Foundation has supported the growth of a number of important early stage biotech companies and we are very pleased to have their support.” About Mid-Atlantic Diamond Ventures Mid-Atlantic Diamond Ventures (MADV) is a science and high technology business cultivator that provides support to early-stage high technology businesses throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Formerly known as Diamond State Ventures, MADV is now an affiliate of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute at Temple University's Fox School of Business. About Immunomic Therapeutics Immunomic Therapeutics was founded in 2005 as a joint effort between Capital Genomix, Inc. and Johns Hopkins University to commercialize the LAMP Technology for cancer, infectious disease and other targets. The core technology is based on the research efforts of Dr. J. Thomas August that began in the mid-1990’s studying intracellular molecular trafficking in dendritic cells. LAMP was found to locate within the cell in the same compartment as the Major Histocompatibility Complex – type II (MHC-II). It was shown that an antigenic protein linked to LAMP would also migrate to the MHC-II compartment. This observation had important ramifications to the development of DNA-based vaccines and Dr. August and JHU were awarded a patent in 1997 for the application of LAMP to genetic vaccines. More recent research has led to the filing of additional patents covering improvements and enhancements for DNA – based vaccines. Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc. (“ITI”) is a privately held biotechnology company headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland that is commercializing a portfolio of clinical applications based on “LAMP” vaccine technology. ITI offers access to LAMP – based vectors and novel vaccine design through license and collaborative research agreements. More information about ITI and LAMP technology can be obtained from www.immunomix.com or www.immunomictherapeutics.com. This press release may contain forward looking statements regarding, among other matters, the Company's future prospects. Forward looking statements address matters that are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that can cause actual results to differ materially. Investors are cautioned that such forward-looking statements in this press release regarding potential applications of ITI’s technologies, constitute forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, risks inherent in the development and commercialization of potential products, uncertainty of clinical trial results or regulatory approvals or clearances, need for future capital, dependence upon collaborators and maintenance of our intellectual property rights.
