Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer Robert C. Bishop, Ph.D. stated, "Product sales in the first six months of 2009 at Colloral LLC, our joint venture with Deseret Laboratories, Inc., more than doubled from the same period in 2008.

AutoImmune consolidates Colloral LLC for financial reporting purposes in accordance with FIN 46R "Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities."

AutoImmune has exclusively licensed certain of its intellectual property rights pertaining to an injectable therapy for the treatment of multiple sclerosis to BioMS. Under the license agreement, BioMS makes monthly diligence payments to AutoImmune and will pay royalties to AutoImmune on sales of all products covered by the license agreement. BioMS Medical Corp. and Eli Lilly and Company recently reported that dirucotide, the lead drug covered by AutoImmune's license agreement with BioMS, did not meet the primary endpoint of delaying disease progression, as measured by the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), during the two-year Phase III trial in patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS). In addition, there were no statistically significant differences between dirucotide and placebo on the secondary endpoints of the study. Eli Lilly and BioMS also announced that they would discontinue ongoing clinical trials and review available data. Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer Robert C. Bishop, Ph.D. stated, "We are obviously disappointed by the results and look forward to further announcements from BioMS and Lilly regarding their future plans for this approach to treating SPMS."

AutoImmune is a biopharmaceutical company involved in the development of treatments for autoimmune and cell-mediated inflammatory diseases and conditions.
