genous growth hormone.  hGH-CTP has been awarded orphan drug designation in the U.S. and Europe for both adults and children with GHD.

PROLOR's long-acting version of human growth hormone and long-acting clotting factors in preclinical development for hemophilia are based on the company's proprietary CTP technology. When attached to a therapeutic protein, CTP significantly extends the length of time the protein remains active in the body.  Clinical and preclinical studies show that the CTP technology appears to be safe and effective in extending the duration of all proteins tested to date.  CTP was identified at Washington University in St. Louis and is exclusively licensed to PROLOR for all proteins and peptides, except for four endocrine proteins that are licensed to Merck.  One of these, the long-acting fertility drug Elonva®, is already marketed by Merck & Co. in Europe.

"This transaction is consistent with OPKO's stated objective of broadening our portfolio of market-transforming therapies in selected specialty markets," commented Dr. Phillip Frost , OPKO's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "With the inclusion of PROLOR's pipeline, OPKO will have four significant products in Phase III clinical development and a robust pipeline of important therapeutic and unique diagnostic products in various stages of development.  PROLOR's drug-product candidates for growth hormone deficiency, hemophilia, obesity and diabetes, along with its broadly applicable technology platforms and efficient research and development center are highly valuable assets that will complement OPKO's strategy."

"We believe this transaction recognizes the value we have created at PROLOR and provides our shareholders with attractive economic terms, as well as the opportunity to continue to share in the success of the
