Kvistgård, Denmark, January 26, 2010 - Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) announced
today that a PROSTVAC(TM) paper has been published in the peer-reviewed Journal
of Clinical Oncology (JCO), the official journal of ASCO (American Society of
Clinical Oncology).

As announced in the prospectus dated 8 January 2010 regarding the ongoing rights
issue, Bavarian Nordic submitted its article to the journal in 2009 with the
expected publication in the first half of 2010.

The paper titled: "Overall Survival Analysis of a Phase II Randomized Controlled
Trial of a Poxviral-Based PSA-Targeted Immunotherapy in Metastatic
Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer" has been published ahead of print on JCO's
website:
http://jco.ascopubs.org/cgi/content/abstract/JCO.2009.25.0597v1

The paper is based on the previously reported Phase II study, showing a
significant longer median survival (8.5 months) in men with advanced prostate
cancer.

Anders Hedegaard, President & CEO of Bavarian Nordic said: "We are delighted
that our PROSTVAC(TM) data has been accepted for publication in Journal of
Clinical Oncology, one of the most prominent peer-reviewed oncology journals.
This is indeed a major recognition of the scientific potential of the vaccine
and highly supports the further development and our ongoing preparations for the
Phase III trials with PROSTVAC(TM)."

About PROSTVAC(TM)
PROSTVAC(TM) is a therapeutic vaccine moving into late stage clinical
development that has the potential to extend the lives of people with advanced
prostate cancer. Administered subcutaneously, it induces a specific, targeted
immune response that attacks prostate cancer cells. Conventional chemotherapy
currently used to treat prostate cancer has limited survival rates and is often
associated with numerous side effects. In contrast, PROSTVAC(TM) has the
potential to extend survival with improved quality of life. PROSTVAC(TM) is
being developed in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute under a
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Bavarian Nordic's U.S.-based
subsidiary, BN ImmunoTherapeutics.

In clinical trials to date PROSTVAC(TM) and related PSA containing poxviral
vaccines have been investigated and optimised in more than 500 patients for 10
years.
