ABOUT AVICENA

Avicena Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AVGO) is a Palo Alto, California based late-stage biotechnology company that develops central nervous system therapeutics for neurodegenerative disorders. The company's core technologies, supported by a robust IP portfolio, have broad applications in both pharmaceuticals and dermaceuticals. Avicena's pharmaceutical program centers on rare neurological disorders (orphan diseases). Near term, the company plans to initiate a confirmatory Phase III trial in ALS and a Phase III trial in Huntington's disease to accompany the ongoing NIH Phase III trial in Parkinson's disease.

Unlike traditional biotechnology companies, Avicena's clinical programs are largely funded by government and non-profit organizations.
