About Soligenix, Inc.

Soligenix is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing products to
treat serious inflammatory diseases where there remains an unmet medical need,
as well as developing several biodefense vaccines and therapeutics. Soligenix
is developing proprietary formulations of oral BDP (beclomethasone
17,21-dipropionate) for the prevention/treatment of gastrointestinal disorders
characterized by severe inflammation, including pediatric Crohn's disease
(SGX203), acute radiation enteritis (SGX201) and chronic Graft-versus-Host
disease (orBec^®), as well as developing its novel innate defense regulator
(IDR) technology SGX942 for the treatment of oral mucositis.

Through its BioDefense Division, Soligenix is developing countermeasures
pursuant to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA)
Strategic Plan of 2011-2016 for inclusion in the US government's Strategic
National Stockpile. Soligenix's biodefense products in development are a
recombinant subunit vaccine called RiVax™, which is designed to protect
against the lethal effects of exposure to ricin toxin and VeloThrax™, a
vaccine against anthrax exposure. RiVax™ has been shown to be well tolerated
and immunogenic in two Phase 1 clinical trials in healthy volunteers. Both
RiVax™ and VeloThrax™ are currently the subject of a $9.4 million National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) grant supporting
development of Soligenix's new vaccine heat stabilization technology known as
ThermoVax™. Soligenix is also developing OrbeShield™ for the treatment of
gastrointestinal acute radiation syndrome (GI ARS) under a BARDA contract
award valued up to $26.3 million and a NIAID contract award valued up to $6.4
million. OrbeShield™ has previously demonstrated statistically significant
preclinical survival results in a canine model of GI ARS funded by the NIAID.
Additionally, Soligenix has an exclusive worldwide collaboration with Intrexon
Corporation focused on the joint development of a treatment for Melioidosis, a
high priority biothreat and an area of unmet medical need.

statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors
that could cause actual events or results in future periods to differ
materially from what is expressed in, or implied by, these statements.
Soligenix cannot assure you that it will be able to successfully develop,
achieve regulatory approval for or commercialize products based on its
technologies, particularly in light of the significant uncertainty inherent in
developing vaccines against bioterror threats conducting preclinical and
clinical trials of vaccines, obtaining regulatory approvals and manufacturing
vaccines, that product development and commercialization efforts will not be
reduced or discontinued due to difficulties or delays in clinical trials or
due to lack of progress or positive results from research and development
efforts, that it will be able to successfully obtain any further funding to
support product development and commercialization efforts, including grants
and awards, maintain its existing grants which are subject to performance
requirements, enter into any biodefense procurement contracts with the US
Government or other countries, that it will be able to compete with larger and
better financed competitors in the biotechnology industry, that changes in
health care practice, third party reimbursement limitations and Federal and/or
state health care reform initiatives will not negatively affect its business,
or that the US Congress may not pass any legislation that would provide
additional funding for the Project BioShield program. These and other risk
factors are described from time to time in filings with the Securities and
Exchange Commission, including, but not limited to, Soligenix's reports on
Forms 10-Q and 10-K. Unless required by law, Soligenix assumes no obligation
