NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Rosen Law Firm reminds investors of the important
February 22, 2013 lead plaintiff deadline in the class action filed on behalf of investors who
purchased the securities of Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (NYSE:HEB) from March 19, 2012 through
December 17, 2012.

 for information on the class action.

The Complaint asserts violations of the federal securities laws against Hemispherx and its
officers and directors for issuing false and misleading information about its lead drug candidate
Ampligen. Specifically, that Hemispherx misstated the safety and efficacy of Ampligen, and touted
purportedly positive results from Ampligen's clinical trials.

On December 18, 2012, the FDA published a staff report concluding that the Company's studies were
"ill-defined and invalid" with signals of efficacy that were inconsistent between clinical trials,
and based on the limited quality of the data, "it is difficult to draw conclusions regarding
potential safety signals," but the "review identified nine potential safety concerns associated
with Ampligen." The Complaint alleges that as a result of this adverse information, Hemispherx
stock price dropped and investors have been damaged.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than February 22, 2013.
