GRAS Status Opens Door to U.S. Food Industry
Date:3/18/2008

MELBOURNE, Australia, March 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Phosphagenics Limited ("Phosphagenics") (ASX: POH, AIM: PSG, OTCQX: PPGNY) today announced that an independent panel ("the panel") of food safety experts unanimously concluded that Phosphagenics' patented Phospha E(R) is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS). This comes as a result of the panel critically evaluating data and information pertinent to the use of Phospha E(R) in breakfast cereals, juice beverages and table fats.

Phospha E(R) is a patented derivative of vitamin E with superior qualities, such as greater absorption and activity. In pre-clinical studies, Phospha E(R), when given orally, has been shown to lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, inhibit the formation of arterial plaques and suppress the main inflammatory pathways involved in metabolic syndrome (a condition which markedly increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and diabetes).

The Company is preparing a GRAS notification to inform the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") of the expert panel's conclusion that Phosphagenics' Phospha E(R) is GRAS. If the FDA has no further comment, GRAS designation allows manufacturers to produce and sell foods that include Phospha E(R) in the U.S. food industry.

"GRAS status extends the permitted use of Phospha E(R) beyond the nutritional supplement market and into the substantial U.S. food industry, and represents a tremendous commercial opportunity for Phosphagenics," said Harry Rosen, Phosphagenics' President and CEO.

GRAS exemptions are granted for substances that are generally recognized, among experts qualified by scientific training and exper
