CVBT Closes Clinical Development Agreement for Coronary Heart Disease Drug Candidate
Date:11/13/2008

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CardioVascular BioTherapeutics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CVBT) (the "Company") has entered into its first clinical development agreement for its Coronary Heart Disease drug candidate with Cardio Neo-Genesis, LP ("CNG"). The agreement, dated November 11, 2008 states that CNG can fund up to $15,000,000 of the clinical development for the Company's Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) drug candidate. The agreement also provides for a royalty to CNG payable from 5% of CVBT's cash-flow stream on its CHD drug up to 20 times return to CNG's limited partners.

"CVBT is currently utilizing clinical development agreements to fund and advance our drug development candidates," according to Mr. Mickael A. Flaa, CVBT's Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Flaa continued, "Given the stress in the financial markets at this time, we looked to the lessons of history for a strategy to finance CVBT's drug development program. The clinical development arrangements that CVBT has entered into are similar in structure to those used successfully by Amgen, Genentech, Biogen, and others over 20 years ago to fund their drug development programs."

"This development agreement is a positive step in advancing CVBT's CHD drug candidate given today's financial markets," said Mr. Daniel C. Montano, CVBT's CEO. Mr. Montano continued, "I believe that CVBT's existing shareholders will benefit from this new source of funding which does not permanently dilute their shareholdings."
