Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com)
(OTCQB:GNBT) (http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/GNBT/quote)
is pleased to announce that Richard Purcell, the Company's Executive
Vice President of Research & Development will participate in a panel
discussion at the Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Immuno-Oncology
Summit at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA (https://www.immuno-oncologysummit.com/)
on August 30, 2018. The panel discussion will focus on current trends
and future prospects for immunotherapy in the treatment of cancer.
Additionally, Mr. Purcell will provide an overview of the relaunched
clinical development program of the HER2/neu immunotherapeutic vaccine,
AE37, together with strategies to advance the proprietary Ii-Key
technology under development at the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary,
Antigen Express, Inc. (www.antigenexpress.com).

"The introduction of checkpoint inhibitors has been revolutionary in the
practice of clinical oncology, but is only effective in roughly 30% of
patients across a variety of cancers," said Mr. Purcell. "The
complementary mechanism of action of AE37 (T-cell activation), and
encouraging results obtained in triple negative breast cancer patients,
strongly suggest that the combined use of AE37 with pembolizumab
(Keytruda®) will provide significantly greater efficacy than either
alone."

The Immuno-Oncology Investing & Partnering Forum is taking place on
Thursday, August 30th and the session Novel
Therapeutics in Cancer Immunotherapy
will take place at 1:30 pm EDT
and consist of company presentations followed by Q&A with the audience.
The conference is taking place at the Seaport World Trade Center in
Boston, MA, and the session room is Beacon Hill 1.
