NES-ZIONA, Israel, June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Modigene Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MODG) today announced that shareholders approved a proposal to change the company's name to PROLOR Biotech, Inc. at its Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 21, 2009. The corporate name change became effective on Wednesday, June 10, 2009. Starting on Friday, June 12, 2009, the company's shares will trade on the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol PBTH.

In addition to the new corporate name, shareholders re-elected all members of the company's Board of Directors, approved an amendment to the company's 2007 Equity Incentive Plan and ratified Yarel + Partners as the company's independent registered public accounting firm.

"Our new name, PROLOR Biotech--PROtein LOngevity Redefined--reflects our company's unique CTP technology that has been proven to significantly extend the longevity and biological activity of major therapeutic proteins such as follicle stimulating hormone, human growth hormone, interferon beta, erythropoietin, Factor VII and Factor IX, and potentially any other therapeutic protein," said Shai Novik, president of PROLOR Biotech. "It is fitting that we make this change now as we prepare to initiate our first clinical trial with our longer-acting version of human growth hormone, signalling our transformation into a clinical stage company."
