Cleveland BioLabs and Incuron Announce Poster Presentation at 2013 European
Cancer Congress

BUFFALO, N.Y., Sept. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cleveland BioLabs, Inc.
(Nasdaq:CBLI) and Incuron, LLC, a joint venture between CBLI and Bioprocess
Capital Ventures today announced a poster presentation at the 2013 European
Cancer Congress, September 27- October 1, 2013 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Katerina Gurova, MD, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Oncology, Department of
Cell Stress Biology, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, will present a poster
titled, "Facilitates chromatin transcription (FACT) complex as a marker and
target of aggressive poorly differentiated cancers," on September 28, which
describes FACT as an attractive target and marker of poorly differentiated
aggressive cancers based on its role as an accelerator of oncogenic
transformation through selective chromatin remodeling of genes involved in
cancer stress response and maintenance of pluripotent cell state.

FACT is the molecular target of CBL0137, a drug in development by Incuron. The
first patient was recently dosed in a multi-center Phase 1 trial evaluating
intravenous administration of CBL0137 in patients with metastatic or
unresectable advanced solid cancers and lymphomas in the U.S. An ongoing Phase
1 study of oral administration of CBL0137 in patients with advanced solid
tumors that are resistant or refractory to standard of care treatment is being
conducted in the Russian Federation.
