Date:10/28/2008

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- BioWa, Inc. announced today that it has entered into an agreement with KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc., under which BioWa licenses to KaloBios its POTELLIGENT(R) Technology for enhancing the antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADDC) of select KaloBios therapeutic antibodies.

"We are excited about this strategic partnership with KaloBios," commented Dr. Masamichi Koike, President and CEO of BioWa. "With KaloBios' specialized expertise in the antibody field, this collaboration will further reinforce our effort to bring the benefit of the technology to patients in need as quickly as possible."

Under the terms of the license agreement, BioWa grants KaloBios non-exclusive rights to research, develop and commercialize therapeutic antibodies generated through POTELLIGENT(R) Technology for an undisclosed number of targets. In return, BioWa will receive upfront payment, and may receive development milestone payments and royalties on products. Other details of the agreement are not disclosed.

About POTELLIGENT(R) Technology

POTELLIGENT(R) Technology improves potency and efficacy of antibody therapeutics, by enhancing ADCC, one of the major mechanisms of action for antibody therapeutics. POTELLIGENT(R) Technology involves the reduction of the amount of fucose in the carbohydrate structure of an antibody using a proprietary fucosyltransferase-knockout CHO cell line as a production cell. Research shows that POTELLIGENT(R) Technology dramatically enhances ADCC activity of an antibody in vitro, and significantly increases potency and efficacy of the antibody in vivo. A number of POTELLIGENT(R) antibodies are being investigated in human clinical trials.
