Share:

CEL-SCI Corporation (NYSE:CVM) announces that the NYSE
American (the "Exchange") has accepted the Company's plan to bring
itself into compliance with the Exchange's continued listing standards.

The Company previously received notice from the Exchange on July 12,
2018, indicating the Company is below compliance with Section
1003(a)(i), Section 1003(a)(ii) and Section 1003(a)(iii) since it
reported a stockholders' equity deficit as of June 30, 2018 and had net
losses in its 5 most recent fiscal years ended September 30, 2017.
Additional information and provisions regarding the NYSE American
requirements are found in Part 10 of its Company Guide. The Company was
afforded the opportunity to submit a plan to regain compliance, and on
July 30, 2018 the Company submitted its plan to the Exchange.

On August 16, 2018 the Exchange notified the Company that it accepted
the Company's plan of compliance and granted the Company until January
14, 2019 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. The
Company will be subject to periodic review during this period. Failure
to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with
the continued listing standards by the end of the period could result in
the Company being delisted from the NYSE American. The Company may then
appeal a staff determination to initiate such proceedings in accordance
with the exchange's Company Guide.

"We are very pleased that the NYSE American has accepted our compliance
plan. Continued listing on the NYSE American is highly beneficial to
CEL-SCI and its shareholders and we look forward to regaining full
compliance," stated CEL-SCI CEO Geert Kersten.

About CEL-SCI Corporation

CEL-SCI believes that boosting a patient's immune system while it is
still intact should provide the greatest possible impact on survival.
Therefore, in the Phase 3 study CEL-SCI treats patients who are newly
diagnosed with advanced primary squamous cell carcinoma of the head and
neck with Multikine first, BEFORE they receive surgery, radiation and/or
chemotherapy. This approach is unique. Most other cancer immunotherapies
are administered only after conventional therapies have been tried
and/or failed. Multikine (Leukocyte Interleukin, Injection), has
received Orphan Drug designation from the FDA for the neoadjuvant
therapy in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (cancer) of the head
and neck.

CEL-SCI's Phase 3 study is the largest Phase 3 study in the world for
the treatment of head and neck cancer. Per the study's protocol, newly
diagnosed patients with advanced primary squamous cell carcinoma are
treated with the Multikine treatment regimen for 3 weeks prior to the
Standard of Care (SOC) which involves surgery, chemotherapy and/or
radiation. Multikine is designed to help the immune system "see" the
tumor at a time when the immune system is still relatively intact and
thereby better able to mount an attack on the tumor. The aim of
treatment with Multikine is to boost the body's immune system prior to
SOC.

The Company's LEAPS technology is currently being developed as a
therapeutic vaccine for rheumatoid arthritis and is supported by grants
from the National Institutes of Health. The Company has operations in
Vienna, Virginia, and in/near Baltimore, Maryland.
