MONTRÉAL, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - ConjuChem Biotechnologies, Inc. (TSX: CJB) announced today that it has established a Special Committee of independent Board members to explore and evaluate all strategic alternatives including, but not limited to, a sale of the Company or the sale of all or a substantial part of its assets.
