Date:11/17/2009

Riso Pharma guarantees to purchase 50,000 KINLYTIC vials over next three years

TORONTO, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Microbix Biosystems Inc. (MBX:TSX), a biotech company focused on virology and biological technologies, today announced a marketing and supply agreement with Riso Pharma that guarantees purchases of not less than 50,000 KINLYTIC vials over the next three years. KINLYTIC (Urokinase) is Microbix' thrombolytic agent for treating pulmonary embolism.

Under the terms of the agreement, Microbix will grant Riso exclusive rights to market KINLYTIC throughout the Middle East. Microbix will share in the revenues from KINLYTIC sales in all countries covered by the agreement and Riso will be responsible for all commercialization activities. Microbix expects KINLYTIC sales to commence around mid-year 2010.

Mark A. Cochran, Microbix' Chief Business Officer, said, "Microbix is off to a great start as we bring KINLYTIC back to the world's medical community. We expect to provide our clot-busting therapy to other parts of the world by signing additional agreements, such as this one, throughout 2010. And, while final pricing for our therapy has not been yet established, even at a discounted pricing offered to these emerging markets, Microbix will profit substantially from this agreement covering the Middle East."

The market for pharmaceutical sales in the Middle East is valued today at $12 billion and is expected to grow 10 to 15 percent annually, according to published pharmaceutical market reports.
