About Opexa

Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. is dedicated to the development of patient-specific
cellular therapies for the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as MS. The
Company’s leading therapy, Tcelna™, is a personalized cellular immunotherapy
treatment that is in late stage clinical development for MS. Tcelna is derived
from T-cells isolated from peripheral blood, expanded ex vivo, and
reintroduced into the patients via subcutaneous injections. This process
triggers a potent immune response against specific subsets of autoreactive
T-cells known to attack myelin and, thereby, reduces the risk of relapse over
time.

The 15^th Annual BIO CEO & Investor Conference is the largest independent
