Note Regarding DNA-Based or Gene Therapy Product Candidates

Taxus Cardium and its affiliates are developing DNA-based or gene therapies for the potential treatment of cardiovascular and other diseases. To date, no gene therapy products have been approved for sale or use in humans in the U.S. Our product candidates need to complete testing in human clinical trials to provide a basis for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or other health regulatory agencies to review and potentially approve them for use in humans. The outcome of each stage of these clinical trials is necessarily uncertain as to the actual and perceived safety and efficacy of each potential treatment and the FDA would have to review and approve a licensing application before a product candidate could be marketed for any indication. Success in preclinical and early clinical trials does not ensure that later-stage or larger-scale clinical trials would be successful. Nor can there be any assurance that a product would ultimately prove to be safe and effective in humans or, even if approved, that it would compete favorably with other products.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Taxus Cardium is a company with product candidates in various stages of ongoing development. As a result, a substantial number of statements in this website are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements reflect the current view about future events, trends, plans, objectives and/or financial performance based on certain assumptions. They include opinions, forecasts, projections, guidance, expectations, beliefs or other statements that are not statements of historical fact. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “may,” “can,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “expects,” “hopes,” “believes,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “projects,” “potential,” “intends,” “approximates” or the negative or other variation of such terms and other comparable expressions.

Forward-looking statements, by their nature, are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and can be affected by other factors that could cause actual results, achievements and/or Taxus Cardium’s plans and objectives to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. For example, risks and uncertainties that exist in our operations and business environment include, without limitation, our early stage of product development and the limited experience in the development of gene therapies in general, our dependence on proprietary technology, our current and future competition, our history of operating losses and accumulated deficits, our reliance on collaborative relationships, as well as uncertainties related to clinical trials including the actual or perceived safety or efficacy of a product candidate and the ability to obtain the appropriate regulatory approvals, patent protection and third-party patent rights, and market acceptance, as well as other risks and uncertainties. Given these uncertainties, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Taxus Cardium does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise any of these forward-looking statements, whether to reflect new information or future events or circumstances or otherwise.
