Dear Mr. Becker:

This letter (the “Agreement”) constitutes the agreement among Cytogen Corporation (the “Company”) and Rodman & Renshaw, LLC (“Rodman”) and Roth Capital Partners LLC (“Roth”, and together with Rodman, the “Placement Agents”), that Rodman and Roth shall serve as co-placement agents, to perform placement agent services (the “Services”) for the Company, on a “best efforts” basis, in connection with the proposed offer and placement (the “Offering”) by the Company of securities of the Company (the “Securities”). The terms of the Offering and the Securities shall be mutually agreed upon by the Company and the investors and nothing herein implies that either Placement Agent would have the power or authority to bind the Company or an obligation for the Company to issue any Securities or complete the Offering.  The Company expressly acknowledges and agrees that the Placement Agents’ obligations hereunder are on a best efforts basis only and that the execution of this Agreement does not constitute a commitment by either of the Placement Agents to purchase the Securities and does not ensure the successful placement of the Securities or any portion thereof or the success of either of the Placement Agents with respect to securing any other financing on behalf of the Company.

A.           Fees and Expenses.  In connection with the Services described above, the Company shall pay to the Placement Agents the following compensation:

1.      Placement Agents’ Fee.  The Company shall pay to the Placement Agents an aggregate cash placement fee (the “Placement Agents’ Fee”) equal to 6% of the aggregate purchase price paid by each purchaser of Securities that are placed in the Offering.  The Placement Agents’ Fee shall be allocated between the Placement Agents, as follows:  65% to Rodman and 35% to Roth.

2.      Warrants.  As additional compensation for the Services, the Company shall issue to the Placement Agents or their respective designees at the closing of the Offering (the “Closing”), warrants (the “Placement Agent Warrants”) to purchase that number of shares of common stock of the Company (“Shares”) equal to an aggregate of 6% of the aggregate number of Shares placed in the Offering.  The Placement Warrants shall have the same terms, including exercise price and registration rights, as the warrants issued to investors (“Investors”) in the Offering.  The Placement Agents’ Warrants shall be allocated between the Placement Agents as follows:  65% to Rodman and 35% to Roth.

3.      Expenses.  In addition to any fees payable to the Placement Agents hereunder, but only if an Offering is consummated, the Company hereby agrees to reimburse the Placement Agents for their respective reasonable travel and other out-of-pocket expenses incurred by either Placement Agent in
 
 
1270 Avenue of the Americas, 16th Floor
New York, NY 10020

 
 connection with the engagement of the Placement Agents hereunder, including the reasonable fees and expenses of Placement Agents’ counsel.  Such reimbursement shall be limited to an aggregate of $25,000 without prior written approval by the Company.  The expenses shall be allocated between the Placement Agents in proportion to their respective expenses incurred, as submitted to the Company at closing.

B.           Term and Termination of Engagement.  The term (the “Term”) of the Placement Agents’ engagement will begin on the date hereof and end on the earlier of the consummation of the Offering or 15 days after the receipt by either party hereto of written notice of termination; provided that no such notice may be given by the Company for a period of 30 days after the date hereof. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the provisions concerning confidentiality, indemnification, contribution and the Company’s obligations to pay fees and reimburse expenses contained herein will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.

C.           Fee Tail.  The Placement Agents shall be entitled to a Placement Agent’s Fee and Placement Agent Warrants, calculated in the manner provided in Paragraph A, with respect to any subsequent public or private offering or other financing or capital-raising transaction of any kind (other than a bona fide licensing transaction, a sale of a portion of the Company’s assets, a financing in connection with the acquisition of another entity or its assets, or any strategic transaction not involving securities of any type) (“Subsequent Financing”) to the extent that such financing or capital is provided to the Company by investors whom either of the Placement Agents had introduced to the Company during the Term, if such Subsequent Financing is consummated at any time within the 9-month period following the expiration or termination of this Agreement (the “Tail Period”).  Any fees payable in connection with a Subsequent Financing shall be allocated between the Placement Agents as follows:  65% to Rodman and 35% to Roth.

D.           Use of Information.  The Company will furnish the Placement Agents such written information as either of the Placement Agents shall reasonably request in connection with the performance of its services hereunder.  The Company understands, acknowledges and agrees that, in performing its services hereunder, the Placement Agents will use and rely entirely upon such information as well as publicly available information regarding the Company and other potential parties to an Offering and that neither Placement Agent assumes responsibility for independent verification of the accuracy or completeness of any information, whether publicly available or otherwise furnished to it, concerning the Company or otherwise relevant to an Offering, including, without limitation, any financial information, forecasts or projections considered by either Placement Agent in connection with the provision of its services.

E.           Confidentiality.  In the event of the consummation or public announcement of any Offering, each Placement Agent shall have the right to disclose its participation in such Offering, including, without limitation, the placement at its cost of “tombstone” advertisements in financial and other newspapers and journals. Each Placement Agent agrees not to use any confidential information concerning the Company provided to each Placement Agent by the Company for any purposes other than those contemplated under this Agreement.

F.           Securities Matters.  The Company shall be responsible for any and all compliance with the securities laws applicable to it, including Regulation D and the Securities Act of 1933, and Rule 506 promulgated thereunder, and unless otherwise agreed in writing, all state securities (“blue sky”) laws. Each Placement Agent agrees to cooperate with counsel to the Company in that regard.

G.           Indemnity.

1.      In connection with the Company’s engagement of Rodman and Roth as placement agents, the Company hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Placement Agent and their respective Affiliates, and the respective controlling persons, directors, officers, shareholders, agents and employees of any of the foregoing (collectively the “Indemnified Persons”), from and against any and all claims, actions, suits, proceedings (including those of shareholders), damages, liabilities and expenses incurred by any of them (including the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel), (collectively a “Claim”), which are (A) related to or arise out of (i) any actions taken or omitted to be taken (including any untrue statements made of a material fact or any statements of a material fact omitted to be made) by the Company, or (ii) any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any Indemnified Person in connection with the Company’s engagement of the Placement Agents, or (B) otherwise relate to or arise out of either Placement Agent’s activities on the Company’s behalf under their engagement, and the Company shall reimburse any Indemnified Person for all expenses (including the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel) incurred by such Indemnified Person in connection with investigating, preparing or defending any such claim, action, suit or proceeding, whether or not in connection with pending or threatened litigation in which any Indemnified Person is a party.  The Company will not, however, be responsible for any Claim, which is finally judicially determined to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of any person seeking indemnification for such Claim.  The Company further agrees that no Indemnified Person shall have any liability to the Company for or in connection with the Company’s engagement of Rodman or Roth, except for any Claim incurred by the Company as a result of such Indemnified Person’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

2.      The Company further agrees that it will not, without the prior written consent of Rodman and/or Roth, as applicable, settle, compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment in any pending or threatened Claim in respect of which indemnification may be sought hereunder (whether or not any Indemnified Person is an actual or potential party to such Claim), unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional, irrevocable release of each Indemnified Person from any and all liability arising out of such Claim.

3.      Promptly upon receipt by an Indemnified Person of notice of any complaint or the assertion or institution of any Claim with respect to which indemnification is being sought hereunder, such Indemnified Person shall notify the Company in writing of such complaint or of such assertion or institution but failure to so notify the Company shall not relieve the Company from any obligation it may have hereunder, except and only to the extent such failure results in the forfeiture by the Company of substantial rights and defenses.  If the Company so elects or is requested by such Indemnified Person, the Company will assume the defense of such Claim, including the employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Person and the payment of the fees and expenses of such counsel. In the event, however, that legal counsel to such Indemnified Person reasonably determines that having common counsel would present such counsel with a conflict of interest or if the defendant in, or target of, any such Claim, includes an Indemnified Person and the Company, and legal counsel to such Indemnified Person reasonably concludes that there may be legal defenses available to it or other Indemnified Persons different from or in addition to those available to the Company, then such Indemnified Person may employ its own separate counsel to represent or defend him, her or it in any such Claim and the Company shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if the Company fails timely or diligently to defend, contest, or otherwise protect against any Claim, the relevant Indemnified Party shall have the right, but not the obligation, to defend, contest, compromise, settle, assert crossclaims, or counterclaims or otherwise protect against the same, and shall be fully indemnified by the Company therefor, including without limitation, for the reasonable fees and expenses of its counsel and all amounts paid as a result of such Claim or the compromise or settlement thereof.  In addition, with respect to any Claim in which the Company assumes the defense, the

 Indemnified Person shall have the right to participate in such Claim and to retain his, her or its own counsel therefor at his, her or its own expense.

4.      The Company agrees that if any indemnity sought by an Indemnified Person hereunder is held by a court to be unavailable for any reason then (whether or not either Placement Agent is the Indemnified Person), the Company and the Placement Agents shall contribute to the Claim for which such indemnity is held unavailable in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits to the Company, on the one hand, and the Placement Agents on the other, in connection with the Placement Agents’ engagement referred to above, subject to the limitation that in no event shall the amount of either Placement Agent’s contribution to such Claim exceed the amount of fees actually received by such Placement Agent from the Company pursuant to the Placement Agents’ engagement.  The Company hereby agrees that the relative benefits to the Company, on the one hand, and the Placement Agents on the other, with respect to the Placement Agents’ engagement shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as (a) the total value paid or proposed to be paid or received by the Company or its stockholders as the case may be, pursuant to the Offering (whether or not consummated) for which is the Placement Agents are engaged to render services bears to (b) the fee paid or proposed to be paid to the Placement Agents in connection with such engagement.

5.      The Company’s indemnity, reimbursement and contribution obligations under this Agreement (a) shall be in addition to, and shall in no way limit or otherwise adversely affect any rights that any Indemnified Party may have at law or at equity and (b) shall be effective whether or not the Company is at fault in any way.

H.           Limitation of Engagement to the Company.  The Company acknowledges that Rodman and Roth have been retained only by the Company, that each Placement Agent is providing services hereunder as an independent contractor (and not in any fiduciary or agency capacity) and that the Company’s engagement of the Placement Agents is not deemed to be on behalf of, and is not intended to confer rights upon, any shareholder, owner or partner of the Company or any other person not a party hereto as against Rodman, Roth, or any of their respective affiliates, or any of its or their respective officers, directors, controlling persons (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), employees or agents.  Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Rodman and Roth, no one other than the Company is authorized to rely upon this Agreement or any other statements or conduct of the Placement Agents, and no one other than the Company is intended to be a beneficiary of this Agreement.  The Company acknowledges that any recommendation or advice, written or oral, given by either Placement Agent to the Company in connection with the engagement of the Placement Agents is intended solely for the benefit and use of the Company’s management and directors in considering a possible Offering, and any such recommendation or advice is not on behalf of, and shall not confer any rights or remedies upon, any other person or be used or relied upon for any other purpose.  Neither Placement Agent shall have the authority to make any commitment binding on the Company.  The Company, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to reject any investor introduced to it by either Placement Agent.  The Company agrees that it will perform and comply with the covenants and other obligations set forth in the purchase agreement and related transaction documents between the Company and the investors in the Offering, and that either Placement Agent will be entitled to rely on the representations, warranties, agreements and covenants of the Company contained in such purchase agreement and related transaction documents as if such representations, warranties, agreements and covenants were made directly to such Placement Agent by the Company.

I.           Limitation of Placement Agents’ Liability to the Company.  The Placement Agents and the Company further agree that neither Placement Agent nor any of their respective affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, controlling persons (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act of 1934), employees or agents shall have any liability to the Company, its

 security holders or creditors, or any person asserting claims on behalf of or in the right of the Company (whether direct or indirect, in contract, tort, for an act of negligence or otherwise) for any losses, fees, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses or equitable relief arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Services rendered hereunder, except for losses, fees, damages, liabilities, costs or expenses that arise out of or are based on any action of or failure to act by either Placement Agent and that are finally judicially determined to have resulted solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Placement Agent.

J.           Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be fully performed therein.  Any disputes which arise under this Agreement, even after the termination of this Agreement, will be heard only in the state or federal courts located in the City of New York, State of New York.  The parties hereto expressly agree to submit themselves to the jurisdiction of the foregoing courts in the City of New York, State of New York. The parties hereto expressly waive any rights they may have to contest the jurisdiction, venue or authority of any court sitting in the City and State of New York.  In the event of the bringing of any action, or suit by a party hereto against the other party hereto, arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the party in whose favor the final judgment or award shall be entered shall be entitled to have and recover from the other party the costs and expenses incurred in connection therewith, including its reasonable attorneys’ fees.  Any rights to trial by jury with respect to any such action, proceeding or suit are hereby waived by Rodman and the Company.

If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable in any respect, such determination will not affect such provision in any other respect, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (including facsimile counterparts), each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
