Aida's Rh-Apo2L Clinical Testing Shows Preliminary Efficacy in Helping to Treat Lung Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Lymphoma, Pancreatic Cancer & Kidney Cancer
Date:10/22/2007

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aida Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AIDA) today announced an update on its testing of Rh-Apo2L, the next large-scale product to be launched by the Company into the China market. Aida previously announced that it had successfully passed its Phase I tests in July 2006, which consists of tests for safety, dosage and the potential cancer treatments to be tested in Phases II & III. Aida is currently undergoing Phase II testing of Rh-Apo2L testing through China's SFDA, the national drug regulatory agency.

Phase II is divided into two substages: IIA and IIB. IIA consists of tests on over 100 human patients using only Rh-Apo2L and gauges the efficacy of the drug as well as the narrowing of the scope of targeted cancers. Results thus far have shown strong efficacy in treating lung cancer (non-small cell), non-Hodgkins lymphoma, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and kidney cancer. Shanghai Qiaer, Aida's research subsidiary, has reduced the key cancer targets to the three main diseases which Rh-Apo2L has shown the most efficacy and which have the most market potential. These three cancer targets will be announced at a later date, pending successful trials. Formal results will also be released after clinical tests are completed.

Phase IIB is testing Rh-Apo2L in combination with other anti-cancer drugs on the above three chosen diseases. The tests monitor interaction with other drugs, side effects and dosages for additional tests. To date, the combined use of Rh-Apo2L with selected anti-cancer drugs has shown good efficacy, reliable safety and no additional side effects. Tests are still ongoing for various dosage amounts on different types of cancer and no regulatory approval has been received for these drugs.
